Boutique British sports car maker, Caterham Cars, has built a retro version of its iconic Seven called the Caterham Seven Sprint.
According to the company, the car’s mid-1960s inspired detailing “will delight Seven purists and provide the perfect scene-setter” to the brand’s ’60 Years of the Seven’ anniversary next year.
The Sprint features a selection of nostalgic features, including a choice of six pain colours that were original British manufacturer colours available in 1966/67.
The Sprint chassis is powder-coated grey to make it period-accurate for a Series 2 Lotus 7, while the suspension and rollover bar are also reminiscent of Colin Chapman’s original. It also sports flared front wings, polished exhaust silencer and unique retro-styled, individual rear lights.
Its wheels are painted cream and finished with polished hubcaps, while the main bodywork, emblazoned with retro Caterham branding and Sprint logo, is available in original British colours, named by Caterham to reflect their heritage – Cream, Mellow Yellow, Regency Red, Camberwick Green, British Racing Green and Misty Blue.
Inside, the cockpit comes with a wooden-rimmed sports steering wheel and dashboard in wood effect, while the tacho even features 60’s style red and yellow sectors. The interior and luggage space are fully carpeted.
Priced from £27,995 in the U.K., the car is powered by the same 59kW (80hp) three-cylinder Suzuki engine found in the entry-level Seven 160 model – one of very few concessions to modern life.
The Caterham Seven Sprint will be available as a factory-built car only.
