Caterham Cars have revealed two new variants of its iconic Seven set to go on sale during Monterey Car Week – the Seven 480 and 360. The numbers are set to correspond to the Sevens’ power-to-weight ratio as opposed to potential power outputs.
Both the new Seven 480 and Seven 360 models are powered by a two-litre Ford Duratec engine, with the 480 variant benefiting from slightly more power. The Seven 480 reaches 0-62 MPH is just 3.4 seconds with 237BHP and a top speed of 140 MPH. Meanwhile, the slightly lower-powered Seven 360 reaches 0-62 MPH in 4.9 seconds with 180 BHP and a top speed of 130 MPH.
Sevens are shipped to the United States in part-built form and sold as rolling chassis via Superformance’s nationwide dealer network for customers to then complete personally and add final touches.
The Caterham Seven was first created in England over 40 years ago and is now one of the most recognizable British sportscars of all time. The Seven is famed for its distinctive, classic styling, lightweight structure and legendary performance and handling.
Prices start at $44,900 for the Seven 360 and $52,900 for the Seven 480.
