Introduction

What Car? says...

Sports cars don’t come much more old school than the Caterham Seven – as you can see from these photographs.

It’s based on a super-lightweight design by Lotus, the Lotus Seven, which was built from the late Fifties and into the Seventies. Caterham's version doesn’t actually share any parts with the original, but it does look a lot like it – and many people would argue that that’s to its credit.
