2014 Caterham Seven 160/165 priced at £14,995 in the UK

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2013

A new model is available in the Caterham lineup as the British carmaker opened the order books for the Seven 160 (UK), which is available as the Seven 165 in Europe. Priced from £14,995 in component form, the new Caterham Seven 165 promises to be a new entry-point to the Seven range.

Under its hood, there is a 660cc three-cylinder, turbocharged engine, that pushes the car from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.5 seconds and to a top speed of 100 mph or 160 km/h. According to Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald, the new Seven 165 is more economical, more accessible and every bit as fun on the road as other Sevens.

The car features a new rear axle which is in fact a throwback to early Sevens in terms of simplicity and purity of design. The 660cc engine delivers 80 hp and conforms to EU5, EU6 and JC08 emissions regulations. In order to clarify the number 5 at the end of the EU spec car’s moniker: this signifies that the vehicle complies with the EU5 emissions standards.

Both the Caterham Seven 160 and 165 will be available in January 2014, while first deliveries will start in Spring. Macdonald continued: “The engineering challenges we faced when developing the new vehicle were significant. The engine, suspension and the overall dynamics all needed to work in harmony and the various arms of the Group have been successful in pooling facilities and expertise to achieve that.” [source: Caterham]
