Caterham Unveils the 2014 Seven
|   Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Caterham was started four decades back in a small pub in Primrose Hill. The company has come a long way since. They started initially as distributers and part manufacturers for Lotus and worked till 1966. Caterham's most successful vehicle till date has been its Seven and this car has undergone numerous modifications. The chassis has developed since its last generation while its rear wheels are larger than its last generation.

The body structure however is made up on carbon fiber and fiberglass and although basic hardware may have been altered, its DNA is still the same.
Caterham has managed to keep its rear light clusters intact ever since its early production vehicles. Even though these cars have faced myriad changes, based on Ford and Vauxhall, the company has managed to keep its heritage intact.

Over the years Caterham has installed modified front and rear suspension, along with a wish bone arrangement while its rear end has seen no major modifications since 1984. Minor changes have been made to its chassis tubes while its cabin has seen major modifications and changes since the ages. Caterham has managed to keep the Seven in order this long. In fact Caterham plans on keeping this vehicle into production for long.

Recent modifications on its 2014 model include the Super sport R DNA. The car is lighter and more aerodynamics than ever before while advanced space frame chassis supports this vehicle as a whole. Caterham draws inspiration from legendary car makers Lotus. Hence, their engine components and engineering style are similar in various ways. Exterior wise, these cars are very different and hence have their own road presence.

People love Caterham for the fact that they manufacture sports cars within a budget. These vehicles will give you pleasure of high speed driving while safety features are kept in mind. Exterior modifications have been conducted on this car such as smaller head lamps, shorter snub, spare wheels and racing stripes on its exterior. Sporty vehicles need a similarly sporty exhaust note and this is exactly what Caterham is providing to its current clientele.

Even though you cannot compare this vehicle to a Ford Mustang or a Corvette for that matter, it is a British sports car with flamboyance. Caterham has unveiled its latest Seven with a modified roll cage which is expected to keep its passengers safe in case of an accident. Architectural structure inside have not been modified much but is has all the basic equipments. People over 6 feet need to cramp inside as cockpit space are not as much as we would have liked it to be.

Caterham's Seven is the perfect way to cruise around in style, even though its styling is a little controversial. Clutch settings and high power to weight ratio makes this vehicle perfect for cruising around, unless you need the need for speed. Acceleration from 0 - 60 MPH is possible within 3 seconds, although official figures are yet to be unveiled. We expect a lot from Caterham and this company has not failed us till date.
