Caterham unveiled today its all-new AeroSeven Concept at the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix. This is company’s first model designed with significant input from all of the Caterham Group’s specialist business arms, and as expected its design will influence future models, including the new sportscar developed with Renault and due for release in early 2016. Inspired by the technology used in Formula 1, the AeroSeven Concept features a newly developed Caterham Engine Management System enabling fully-adjustable traction and launch control functionality.
Powered by a normally-aspirated engine with 240 ps (237 bhp) developed by Caterham Technology & Innovation for the recently launched Caterham Seven 485, the AeroSeven Concept hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 4 seconds.
In terms of design, the AeroSeven Concept comes with car-inspired features such as aerodynamic styling, an exclusive steering wheel with driver-focussed functionality, and an intuitive fully active Graphical Display Unit (GDU). Comparing it with the current lineup, the AeroSeven Concept is completely different and we are glad that the British carmaker will update its design philosophy.
The AeroSeven Concept also incorporates a completely new rollover structure, to aid safety and improve aerodynamic performance and enhance aesthetics.
