Caterham AeroSeven delayed till 2015

Feel like talking about something exclusive? Then Caterham is the appropriate topic. A Caterham is everything but an ordinary car. It represents the maximum point in the driving involvement, providing a sophisticated package of handling, road holding and ride excitement. And there are some hot news coming straight from the company. They regard the Caterham AeroSeven Concept. The officials decided to delay the production version until 2015 because they are redesigning the concept.

The Caterham AeroSeven Concept was showcased at the Singapore Grand Prix. The concept gives us an idea about how the production version, which was planned for release in 2014, will look like. The AeroSeven Concept is based on the latest version of Caterham Seven CSR platform.  It also borrows some elements and methods used in the Formula 1 segment.  It will be a premiere, being the first Caterham model to have traction control. The future drivers will have lots of fun with the fully-adjustable traction and launch control functionality. However, 2014 doesn’t seem to be the glourious one for the vehicle, as its debut as a production vehicle is postponed until 2015.

By 2015, the Caterham AeroSeven will be equipped with a windscreen and a hardtop roof as a result of the clients’ requests. The supercar will be powered by a naturally aspirated Ford Duratec-based engine that produces 240PS (237bhp) and allows the concept to sprint from stand point to 100kph (62mph) in under 4 seconds. The unit powering the production version is still under discussion. The AeroSeven Concept signals the brand’s intentions in terms of product engineering processes, speed to market, as well as a hint to its styling direction for future models.
