2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the Caterham Seven. To celebrate the occasion, Caterham has launched the limited edition Caterham Seven SuperSprint. Bringing together our racing heritage and retro soaked style, Caterham has unveiled the ultimate gentleman’s racer. Reflecting the anniversary, 60 SuperSprints have gone on sale today.
From the firm that brought you the ultimate gentleman’s ride in the Seven Sprint, Caterham Cars – purveyors of most excellent motor cars – now present the ultimate gentleman’s racer, the Seven SuperSprint.
For the discerning chap or chapess who prefers the unbridled thrill of the race track to the constraints of the public highway, the SuperSprint offers a hearty 95bhp from its race‑tuned, three-pot engine.
With immaculately balanced handling characteristics and superbly detailed styling, hand-finished by Caterham’s craftsmen in Dartford, Kent, the SuperSprint is the perfect vehicle for the more adventurous motorist and delivers lashings of performance, precision and panache.
Continuing the nostalgic journey through the past 60 years that the Sprint started last year, the SuperSprint harks back to a time when the true gentleman racer would drive to the track, go racing and drive home again.
Offered in six different sixties inspired paint schemes, all named after iconic, historic race tracks, the SuperSprint is equally at home on the road as it is on the circuit. Available as either a twin seater or, for the more serious pilot looking to strip out as much weight as possible, as a single-seater complete with tonneau cover for optimum aerodynamic impact.
With your steely gaze fixed on the first-corner apex through the Brooklands aero windscreen, twist the bespoke master switch to fire the engine, clamp your gloved hands on the wooden‑rimmed sports steering wheel and prepare to blast off the line for the race of your life.
