As the world’s biggest manufacturer of race cars, it’s no surprise to hear that the Seven CSR, has been developed from an intensive 18 month test programme for a new International Race Car. With an unrivalled 260 bhp engine, the latest Caterham racer will continue the firm’s long-standing and hugely successful worldwide motorsport programme. A new series for 2005 will take in six of the finest driver’s circuits on the Continent including Spa Francorchamps, Estoril and Nurburgring.
Simon Nearn concludes: “Caterham has to remain at the pinnacle of its chosen niche - lightweight, high performance sports cars. We feel we’ve taken the next giant stride forward with the Seven CSR.”
“Caterham’s role as custodian of the legend is not only to ensure its continued existence but also its continued development,” explains Simon Nearn, managing director of Caterham Cars.
“Ideas for the development of the Seven are always ongoing. Yet it was clear from the start, that many of the changes being considered throughout the company would come together and be introduced to create one truly, original all-new model for the world market.”
Designed for Racing Built for Living
The latest Caterham has been pounding the circuits of the UK and Europe for 18 months. As with all Caterham products, the car is designed and proven as a thoroughbred racing machine and only then, with performance and durability a given, is the road car created.
The Caterham Seven CSR goes on sale with prices starting £27,450 for the 200bhp version and from £33,950 for the 260bhp.Published 9 October 2004
