Caterham has introduced three new versions of the Seven sports car.
Already available for order in the UK, the 270, 360 and 480 variants deliver “accessible fun through the traditional Caterham minimalistic, lightweight approach to sports car engineering”. The three new vehicles sit between the existing entry-level Seven 160 and the supercharged 620R, the most powerful production Seven ever built.
The 270 model is powered by a 1.6-liter Ford engine with variable-valve timing technology, offering 135 bhp. Next is the Seven 360 that uses a 2.0-liter Duratec petrol unit from Ford with 180 bhp. The Seven 420, replacing the Superlight R400, comes with the same 2.0-liter engine, tuned to 210 bhp.
The British producer has also announced two new equipment packages, which are available on all models. The new S and R packs offer “specially-tailored trim and equipment packages to suit both road and track drivers”. The first one adds fully-carpeted cockpit, full windscreen, hood and side screens and leather seats, while the R package includes a limited-slip differential, sports suspension and a four-point race harness.
