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, handbuilt at the factory by Caterham, only 60 were produced for the global market 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 27 of 60 factory built cars, registered by Caterham on 5th July 2017 and delivered later in July 2017. A one owner car, 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’ on 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 optional extras including driver and passenger lowered floors, weather equipment with cream piping, heated windscreen and heater. A real collector's item, this example comes with little over delivery mileage and benefits from a recent service in November this year and a new MoT. This Caterham 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.
