Caterham Seven 270 Specs

Caterham Seven 270

The Caterham brand caters to a very small niche of driving enthusiasts that has shunned both forced induction and modern styling. Based on the Lotus 7, the Caterham Seven 270 offers no driver aids. Even the steering is devoid of assistance, thus offering better feel and accuracy. As a truly focused machine, nothing more than the essentials makes its way into the cabin, and you don’t even get a roof. While most people will immediately look past this car, especially considering its price, there is very little on sale that can offer the same sort of driver involvement and feedback. If you’re looking to better understand how a car reacts to various inputs and what to do to handle a car at the limit, something like this is perfect.
