Entry-Level Caterham Seven in the Works
According to Autocar, the entry-level Seven will be built in the classic Caterham fashion and will be powered by an Euro-6 compliant engine. Also, the new version, which is expected to be priced under £17,000 (€19,900 / $25,500), will arrive this autumn, with deliveries to commence before the end of the year.
“As we celebrate our 40th anniversary at Caterham, it feels good to be taking the brand right back to where it started. Colin Chapman designed the original Seven to be entirely ‘fit-for-purpose’ – a racing car for the road with the driving experience at its heart. With that in mind, the new entry-level Seven will be uncomplicated, easy to run and, most important of all, an intuitive and exciting drive.”
The super-lightweight Caterham Seven is built since 1973, when the Surrey-based company bought the right to the design after Lotus stopped making its factory-built Seven. Designed by Colin Chapman himself, the Lotus Seven was assembled from 1957 through 1972.
