Caterham bought the rights to produce the Lotus Seven Mk III over 40 years ago and have continued to develop the product to the present day, but have noticeably failed to replace it.
The Caterham Aero Seven Concept features the latest Caterham Seven CSR platform which has been fitted with a Carbon composite body.
Power comes from an EU6 compliant evolution of the 2 litre / 122 cui Ford Duratec motor which produces 237hp at 8,500 rpm. The steering wheel is said to be focused on driver functionality.
The Aero Seven Concept will be the first Caterham to feature traction control which should help the car accelerate from rest to 62.5 mph in less than four seconds.
At the time of the Aero Seven Concept announcement last year it was anticipated the car would go into production this year at their Dartford factory.
