Seven's History

The Caterham Seven has a timeless classic appeal, yet technically it’s more than a match for today’s performance cars. Dynamically, it still provides the benchmark by which other cars are judged. Development over 40 years of the Seven include the introduction of double wishbone front and de Dion rear suspension, four wheel disc brakes, a Caterham six speed close ratio gearbox, a stiffer spaceframe chassis with honeycomb impact protection panels and other safety features. And now, for the first time in its 40-year history, an extended dimension chassis is available, known as the Caterham SV. These technical improvements have enabled the Seven to remain firmly on pole position, leading the way in sports car performance.
