The first Seven was built in 1957 by Lotus, the brainchild of Colin Chapman, who was convinced of the advantages of small lightweight racing cars, giving huge power to weight benefits. He actually referred to the Seven as something he had dreamed of designing since he was a schoolboy - a 'four wheeled motorbike'. The quickest Caterham - the R500, introduced in 1999, has a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 146 mph.

With stunning performance potential and all the character of existing Caterham circuit cars, the new supercharged incarnation of the Seven was set to represent the top echelon of the Caterham racing spectrum in the Superlight R600 Championship in 2013.

Powered by a supercharged 2-litre Ford Duratec engine, producing 275bhp, the planned R600 championship was to extend the Caterham Motorsport ‘ladder’, currently topped by the hugely successful R300 series. Eventually, Caterham changed their plans for the dedicated series and cancelled the R600 series before the 2013 season started. Fortunately, the various Caterham series available are still healthy and represent a exciting part of grass roots racing with an iconic British sports car.
