To celebrate new ownership of Caterham Cars, a limited run of Team Lotus Special Edition Caterham Sevens will be built.
25 of the Team Lotus upgrade packages can be applied to any variant of the 263bhp Caterham Superlight R500 will be built in the UK, with another 25 to be allocated to the Company's export markets.
The exterior will be coated in a Team Lotus inspired livery, with the theme continuing on the cockpit, with a plaque which bares the signatures of Team Lotus F1 drivers, Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen. Owners will receive a caterham Seven history book signed by chief designer, Mike Gascoyne. Also included with the upgrade package is an invitation to a tour of the Team Lotus F1 factory in Hingham, Norfolk.
Caterham managing director, Ansar Ali, said: "Caterham Cars is starting an exciting and hugely important chapter, so it's entirely fitting that we celebrate our opportunity to take Colin Chapman's 'less is more' philosophy global, with this special car.
"Owners of the Special Edition Sevens will have not only a fabulous British sportscar, but a genuine piece of automotive history in their garage."
The current range of Caterham Seven products starts with the Caterham Classic, priced at £13,650.Published 27 April 2011
