Caterham has unveiled the new, limited edition Seven SuperSprint at this weekend's Goodwood Revival as part of its 60th-anniversary celebrations.

Reflecting the anniversary, 60 SuperSprints destined for the ÚK and European markets go on sale today, completing the pair of special models that have topped and tailed the anniversary year. The similarly retro Seven Sprint was launched at the same event 12 months ago, with all 60 cars sold within a week, quickly becoming the fastest selling Caterham Seven to date.

2017 Caterham Seven SuperSprintOffering the ultimate in gentleman racer style, alongside the hearty power of its 95bhp Caterham Works Racing-tuned, three cylinder engine, the Seven SuperSprint is as at home on the road as it is on the circuit.

A unique Brooklands windscreen, quilted and stitched seats trimmed in Innes tan Scottish Muirhead leather, a wooden-rimmed sports steering wheel, and 1960s-style racing livery ensures that the driving experience is nothing short of sepia-toned race nostalgia.

The Seven SuperSprint is available in six paint schemes, all featuring their own signature colour and named after classic race circuits including Aintree (green with orange noseband), Hockenheim (silver with red noseband) and Imola (red with white noseband).


With 1960's race style front of mind, Caterham has also created a single-seater option, which comes complete with a tonneau cover for the more serious pilot looking to strip out as much weight as possible.

Graham Macdonald, Caterham Chief Executive Officer, said: 'Motorsport and the purist thrill of driving a lightweight race car is in the Caterham Seven's DNA and are elements that run like a thread through every car we build today, 60 years after the first Seven was made.

'We started our 60th anniversary year with the glorious throwback Sprint – aimed at the more discerning chap or lady driver. As we approach the end of our year of celebration, it makes perfect sense that the car bookending the celebrations is a racer of a similar vein.'

Simon Lambert, Chief Motorsport and Technical Officer, added: 'Like the Sprint, this is unquestionably the Seven Caterham would have developed if we had been here in the mid-sixties – and it benefits from being injected with the passion and power of the modern incarnation. The visual appeal of our new baby is only outclassed by a driving experience that puts you straight behind the goggles of Stirling Moss and Innes Ireland.'
