Caterham Seven Special Edition

It is easy to tell that British carmaker Caterham is doing its best to remain with the feet on the ground despite of the powerful globalization process. It is a known fact that they get their engines from an established mainstream manufacturer and not make their own, but even so, thanks to some clever specialists, the company manages to keep the brand alive and thriving. Caterham has a lot of experience in creating sports cars with great handling and fro this they are very well known in the business. This is one of the reasons for which Renault asked them to co-develop the Alpine sports car, based on their rich experience.

For the moment, Caterham needs to sell the Seven, a model that looks just like it looked a few years ago, but that now comes with several new technological advancements developed over the years. The carmaker also has to sell a limited edition model which has been developed in order to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Seven. According to the British manufacturer, the first 40 units that will be bought from May 9 onward will get a special pack that actually offered the cars a unique, limited edition plaque and hand-made leather seats. the pack also includes a ruby red 40YOC paint with bespoke bonnet stripes, dashboard and interior, but also a specially made key machined from aluminum and to transfer the output to the road, 15-inch silver alloy wheels.

All these new elements will be offered to the owner free of charge. If you ask us this is a really good understanding. The bad news is that the pack has already been sold out, but if you want to by a Caterham, just for the emotions it offers when at the wheel, you should know that the carmaker has established a starting price of GBP19.995 for the base version. The other variants are a SuperlightR500 and an even more extreme R600, but more of these last ones, a bit later.
