Caterham to showcase lineup at 2014 Autosport International Show

Article by Anita Panait, on December 18, 2013

Caterham will showcase its current lineup at the 2014 Autosport International Show slated on January 9 to 12, 2014 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. The display will include the AeroSeven concept car unveiled at the Singapore Grand Prix earlier this year, as well as the 2013 CT03 Caterham F1 car and the SP/300.R racing and trackday car.

Caterham will also feature the new Superlight R300 championship race car, the Seven 485 SV and the Caterham Kart.In Hall 4. During the event, the carmaker will also hold the Caterham Experience, in which visitors could have a passenger ride in a Seven alongside Caterham’s team of professional drivers.  Also, some lucky visitors could find themselves driving a Caterham and master the art of donutting for themselves along with the carmaker’s team of expert tire screechers.

Interested visitors are encouraged to book early if they want to become of the few privileged to enter the Caterham Donut School.

The centerpiece of Caterham’s display will be the AeroSeven concept, which will be available next year. It designed using input from all of the Caterham Group divisions, and was developed using methods and technologies used by the F1 team. It will be the very first Caterham vehicle to feature traction control, thanks to a new Caterham Engine Management System.

The concept features styling that hints strongly on the future of Caterham design. In October 2013, Caterham launched the Caterham Seven 160 that is powered by a three-cylinder 80hp Suzuki engine at a starting price of just £14,995. A special, handmade cut-away model of the Caterham Seven 160 will be shown alongside the Seven 620R, which boasts of 310bhp in output that allows it to accelerate from zero to 60mph in just 2.79 seconds.
