Since the end of production of original Lotus Seven, the brainchild of Sir Colin Chapman, in 1972, Caterham bought the rights and keep introducing various Sevens today.
Such as hard-core 620R with 310 bhp Supercharged Ford Duratec 2.0 doing 0-60 in 2.79 seconds,
Or the ultimate evolution CSR with F1-style front suspensions,
To the bare-bone self assembly option with even dedicated tools for that.
And to celebrate 60 years of the Seven next year, limited-edition Seven Sprint was introduced with swinging sixties style.
The Sprint has 3 cylinder, 80bhp, 107 Nm Suzuki engine as the entry-level Seven 160, but it weighs less than 500 kg, and mated to 5 speed manual transmission.
And very appropriately, it was launched at Goodwood Revival Meeting last weekend.
With Monolita wooden rimmed sport steering wheel and Smiths instruments.
With scarlet red Muirhead Scottish leather adjustable seats.
Only 60 will be built.
Period rear lights brightens things up much better.
Even the logo is retro.
Priced at £27,995 (US$37,310), guess it’d be a matter of which color to choose from 6 Sixties inspired colors.
Good job, Caterham~
