LONDON – May 10, 2013: Caterham Cars will celebrate 40 years of manufacturing and developing the iconic Seven with a free limited edition pack.

The stylish pack is available to the purchasers of the first 40 Seven orders taken from today and can be applied to any car in the Seven range.

Caterham Cars has been building the Seven since 1973, when original owner, Graham Nearn, acquired the rights to the model from Colin Chapman. It has continually developed the sportscar but never deviated from Chapman’s original philosophy of “adding lightness” and placing the driving experience at the heart of the engineering process.

Available to buyers from the UK or any of Caterham’s export markets at no cost, the pack has been designed to evoke the nostalgia of the early Sevens and includes optional equipment which would typically cost thousands of pounds.

The limited edition ‘40 Years of Caterham’ pack includes:

  • Grey painted chassis, replicating the original Lotus Seven colour
  • Ruby red ‘40YOC’ paint, with bespoke bonnet stripes
  • Hand-tailored leather seats, with grey piping
  • Grey leather dashboard
  • Bespoke tunnel top, with grey handbrake and gearstick gaiters
  • Unique, numbered dash plaque
  • New 15” silver alloy wheels, with Caterham embossing and Avon ZV3 tyres
  • ‘40YOC’ wheel centres and ignition key

    Caterham’s current UK range of Sevens stretches from the Roadsport 125 at 19,995 to the top-of-the-range Superlight R500, priced at 42,495. Meanwhile, across mainland Europe, Caterham has just introduced its most powerful variant yet, the Seven 485.
