Caterham announced a new, affordable entry-level version of the Seven, a car that will come with a price tag at under £17,000. According to the official press release, the new Caterham pays homage to the company’s engineering DNA of ‘adding lightness’, with a super-compact, flexible and EU6-compliant engine.
Moreover, the new Caterham will take the brand brack to its simple design roots but it will remain entirely true to Caterham’s mantra of delivering “accessible fun”. Set to be launched in Autumn, the first deliveries are expected before the end of the year. Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald, said: “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.”
