Caterham has revealed, and subsequently sold off another retro-inspired Seven at the Goodwood Revival, Seven Supersprint.
The most recent limited-run Seven sold out, and rightly so, in seven hours, the brand announced. It’s the fastest-selling Caterham, that the brand has ever done; thave Sprint on which it is based has become the fastest-selling car Caterham, which it did when it was released last winter, with all the 60 units of research of a house within a week of opening orders.
The Section is based on the same recipe of the Seven Sprint, with a three-cylinder engine under the hood, and 95bhp instead of the Sprint 80bhp. A limited run of 60 units, retro-inspired paint was available.
Caterham claims that the Section provides â€œthe last gentleman racerâ€ style, with a wood-rimmed steering wheel and the small Brooklands windscreen. The Supersprint is offered in single or two-seater formats. The car Supersprint has a tonneau cover for the passenger side.
The relics extend toward the outside. There are six paint schemes, each with a base color and contrasting coloured ‘noseband’ around the front grille, with each schema gets its name from a circuit.
Simon Lambert, Caterham’s motorsport technical boss, said: â€œThis is, without a doubt, the Seven-Caterham, that would have developed if we had been here in the mid-1960s â€“ and benefits from being injected with the passion and power of the modern incarnation.â€
Options include a tonneau cover two-seat Section Â£330, windshield and hood Â£1995 and lowered floors to â‚¬ 495. The Section starts at Â£29,995. Each car gets a license plate number on the dashboard.
