The Seven concept has never changed since the original Lotus design of 1957. The car is paired down to the pure experience of driving. Luxuries are kept to a minimum to allow an incredible power to weight ratio. Along with a stiff chassis and near perfect weight distribution this makes the Caterham great fun to drive. Practicality isn’t something considered with this car. It is more suitable for track days and weekend blasts than everyday driving. There’s something for everyone withing the amusingly 7 range just as long as you want a small, agile sports car with no frills and lots of character.
Entry into the Caterham range starts with the 7 Classic at a very reasonable price but bear in mind that the options list includes such luxuries as heater, weather gear and paint!
