Caterham Cars are a manufacturer of specialist lightweight sportscars based in Caterham, Surrey, England and part of the British motor industry. Their car, the Caterham 7, is a direct development of the Lotus Seven designed by Colin Chapman and made under license.
The cars are constructed from aluminium sheet attached to a tubular steel chassis. Their extremely high performance is achieved through light weight (less than 500kg on some versions) rather than particularly powerful engines. The cars have no doors and only a rudimentary fabric roof. Interior comforts and minimal.
Caterham have previously also made the Caterham 21 model but this was not a sales success and has been discontinued.
