While some out there aren’t quite aware of the Caterham brand, they’ll likely still recognise the iconic shape of some of their cars. Colloquially and incorrectly referred to as the Lotus 7 by the masses, this shape of car has been around since your dad’s dad was wooing your mum at the local disco. UK-based Caterham have created some very special models over the year, some being ridiculously fast and nimble on track like the Caterham Seven 620 powered by a 2.0-litre supercharged Ford Zetec lump that afford the lightweight car a power output of 230 kW. A 0-100 under 3-seconds and a top end of 250 km/h. But this isn’t about that car, it’s about two new models added to the range under the Heritage banner - the Super Seven 600 and Super Seven 2000, just in time for the automaker’s 50th birthday.
The cool thing with Caterham is you can buy these cars in a turnkey solution, which means as you see them in the pics, but if you’re wealthy, have lots of spare time and a place to stay in the UK, you can order the car in kit form and put it all together yourself. The pair of Caterhams come with flared front wings, a spare wheel carrier, Avon’s ZT7 tyres, chrome finishes on the grille, a windscreen, a filler cap, a black leather Moto-Lita steering wheel, a carpeted rear panel, a polished exhaust and some LED rear lights. There’s also eleven heritage paint finishes as well as four new colours - Bourbon, Ashdown Green, Windsor Blue and Fawn. For the wheels there’s also a choice of Gold, body or custom-coloured alloy centres with a diamond-cut lip. There is a pretty cool online configurator over at the Caterham website where you can create your own package.
Prices for the start from £29,990 for the 600 and things increase from there and the end total will depend on all the things optioned for the build or the supplied kit.
