Over the past 40 year the the Caterham Seven has been a most delectable recipe for those who love pure engineering and performance. The flyweight car with its bare bones construction is very popular and highly rated within the automotive world. There have been many changes to Caterham over the past few years, including new ownership and its entrance to Formula One, but what does the future hold for the British company?
The answer is the AeroSeven. Revealed at the SIngapore Grand Prix, this menacing looking machine is a concept showing the future direction of the company. Based upon a heavily modified Seven CSR platform, this carbon bodied catapult is powered by a 237BHP 2.0 litre Ford inline-four that is mated to a six speed manual gearbox. 0-62MPH is dashed in 4 seconds as a result. Traction control features for the first time in a car wearing the Caterham badge, something the purists will be hoping would come as an optional extra. Caterham’s F1 involvement has had clear influences on the AeroSeven from its sleek bodywork, lightweight construction, to its racing inspired steering wheel.
