The Team Lotus special edition Sevens features Lotus livery outside and a signed plaque inside
27 April 2011

To celebrate the firm’s new ownership under Lotus F1, Caterham Cars will build a limited run of Team Lotus special edition Sevens.

Limited to just 25 units in the UK, the Lotus upgrade package can be added to any variant up to the top-of-the-range 263bhp version for £3000. A further 25 cars will be available for the company’s export market.

See the pic of the Team Lotus special edition Sevens Features include green and yellow Lotus livery on the outside and a signed plaque by Team Lotus F1 drivers, Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen on the inside.

Also included is an invitation to a tour of the Team Lotus F1 factory in Norfolk and a Seven history book signed by chief designer, Mike Gascoyne.

Caterham managing director Ansar Ali said: “Caterham Cars is starting an exciting and hugely important chapter, so it’s entirely fitting that we celebrate our opportunity to take Colin Chapman’s ‘less is more’ philosophy global, with this special car.”
