Caterham has announced a new entry-level version of the iconic Seven sports car. Expected to go on sale in autumn the new car will be priced from under £17,000 and 'take the firm back to its roots and pay homage to the brand's DNA.'

'Adding lightness' will form a big part of the car, while at the same time remaining true to the Caterham mantra of delivering 'accessible fun'.

The announcement of the new model is a timely one as Caterham celebrates 40 years of developing and manufacturing the Seven.

"As we celebrate our 40th anniversary at Caterham, it feels good to be taking the brand right back to where it started," said Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald. "Colin Chapman designed the original Seven to be entirely 'fit-for-purpose' - a racing car for the road with the driving experience at its heart. With that in mind, the new entry-level Seven will be uncomplicated, easy to run and, most important of all, an intuitive and exciting drive."

Details of the powertrain, which is described as super-compact, flexible and EU6-compliant engine, will be revealed in due course, along with further specification details.
