The Caterham Seven is based on the Lotus Seven, a lightweight sports car sold in both kit and factory-built form by Lotus from the late 1950’s to the early 1970’s. After Lotus ended production of the Seven, in 1972, Caterham bought the rights to design, build and evolve this iconic motorcar.
This beautiful original Caterham Super Seven was produced in 1997 and has covered since then a mere 23,000 miles from new. The Seven is presented with a large lever-arched file of service history, which is fully up to date. In addition to regular maintenance the Caterham has benefitted from newly powder coated wheels, a set of four new tyres suitable for either road or track use, an oil catch tank, a quick-release steering wheel boss and replacement battery. During his ownership our vendor has also had the seats rebuilt and refinished by the original trimmer, the exhaust has been replaced to one more suitable for the reduced noise requirements of track days, the inlet manifold o-rings have been renewed very recently, and the carburettors have been set up and balanced.
This fantastic great driving track and weekend car is offered with two sets of keys, MOT to June 2019 and UK V5.
