The new Seven 160 is the perfect synergy of fun driving and affordability for the new or experienced Seven owner.

The Caterham Seven 160 represents the essence of the Seven. Driving the Seven 160 is pure back-to-basics motoring, evoking strong memories of the 1950’s era from which the Lotus 7 was originally born. The Seven 160 exemplifies the ethos of ‘performance through lightweight’ and making the driver feel absolutely connected to the road.

The Seven 160 is supplied as standard in component form for self assembly, complete to your chosen specification with all the parts you'll need to get your car on the road. It'll come with a first fill pack with all the necessary fluids required to complete your car, so all you'll need in addition to this are some basic tools, a little patience and a splash of fuel! Average build time for a novice is between 60 – 70 hours, with our team at Caterham already putting 20 hours of build work into the car before you receive it. Further more, our technical advice line and detailed build manual ensures the process is stress free and enjoyable. Building a Seven is a unique, exciting and rewarding experience, but if you don't have the time or space you also have the option to have your car factory built.
