Caterham Cars is providing a free limited edition pack, ‘40 Years of Caterham,’ to customers of the first 40 Seven orders taken from May 8, 2013, as part of its celebration of 40 years of building and developing the iconic vehicle. The promotion is applicable to any car in the Seven range. Caterham Cars has been producing the Seven since 1973, when original owner Graham Nearn bought the rights to the model from Colin Chapman.
The carmaker continued to develop the Seven but never departed from Chapman’s philosophy of “adding lightness” and making the driving experience the focus of the engineering process. The free ‘40 Years of Caterham’ pack is available in the United Kingdom and other export market for Caterham. Designed to stimulate the memories of the early Sevens, the free limited edition pack includes optional equipment valued at thousands of pounds.
The limited edition pack includes grey painted chassis that replicates the original Lotus Seven color and Ruby red ‘40YOC’ paint with bespoke bonnet stripes. It also includes hand-tailored leather seats with grey piping; grey leather dashboard, bespoke tunnel top with grey handbrake and gearstick gaiters as well as distinct numbered dash plaque.
The pack likewise features new 15” silver alloy wheels, with Caterham embossing and Avon ZV3 tires; ‘40YOC’ wheel centers and ignition key. Caterham’s Seven lineup ranges from the Roadsport 125 (£19,995) to the range-topping Superlight R500 (£42,495). Caterham has also introduced the most powerful variant of the Seven, the Seven 485, across mainland Europe.
