1974-1995 CATERHAM Super Seven S3 specifications


You can thank Colin Chapman for the fact you can still buy the Seven today. Taking Lotus upmarket in the early 1970s, he sold the lucrative Seven to dealer Caterham Cars, who quickly put the sporting icon into production, never looking back. The tubular steel chassis, covered in aluminium, has remained almost unchanged since – only the engines have been updated to reflect improvements in technology. Prices depend on condition and specification rather than age and mileage, so decide how much performance you want before going shopping.
