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.
The Caterham 7 Superlight has a track oriented specification with carbon fibre panels and wide-track suspension. It is offered with a range of power upgrades from the standard 150bhp 1.6L Sigma engine to the R500 263bhp 2.0L Caterham Powertrain Ford Duratec.
