The Caterham Seven Sprint is the latest in a long and incredibly varied line of models and was launched at the Goodwood Revival in September 2017. The Sprint is the company’s celebration of their 60th anniversary and, hand built at the factory by Caterham, only sixty were produced for the whole of the world with the entire allocation quickly snapped up by enthusiasts. It was available in a limited range of heritage hues for the body and scarlet red Muirhead Scottish leather for the interior seats. With the style of the car reminiscent of the original Lotus 7 models, the engine is the same 80hp three-cylinder turbo-charged 660cc Suzuki engine as fitted to Caterham’s Seven 160, along with its five-speed gearbox, and the drivability and performance are said to be exciting.
This particular example is number 23 of 60 factory built cars, registered by Caterham on 14th July and delivered in July 2017. The bodywork is painted in Camberwick Green complemented by cream steel wheels with chrome hubcaps, whilst the interior has stunning Muirhead Scottish Leather adjustable seats in scarlet red embossed with ‘CATERHAM’ in the backrest. The interior also features a bespoke Moto-Lita wooden rimmed sport steering wheel with engraved aluminium centre embossed with ‘Seven Sprint’. This car comes with every available optional extra including lowered floors, sidescreen armrests, tonneau cover, matching leather seat extender for the smaller driver and dust cover for garage storage with embroidered Caterham logo. A real collector's item, this example comes complete with leather key pouch and two leather key rings all engraved with ‘Caterham Seven Sprint’. With little over delivery mileage, the car is as new and is sure to be very popular for those looking for not only a fabulous driver’s car but also an appreciating asset.
