    A bit about Caterham:

    Caterham Cars is a British manufacturer of super-lightweight sports cars.

    The company was established in Caterham, Surrey, in 1973, when founder Graham Nearn bought the rights to designer and engineer Colin Chapman’s Lotus 7 designs, after Lotus themselves had announced that they were discontinuing the model.

    The modern Caterham line-up is based around variations of the two-seater, lightweight Lotus 7 (Seven) sports car, and all models produced by the company retain this classic design and concept.

    Caterham Cars started producing Starter Kits in 1984, for customers who wanted to build the cars themselves. This proved very successful in the UK – and, to this day, the Caterham 7 car is often bought in kit form by enthusiasts and hobbyists for home assembly.

    In 1987, production of Caterham cars was moved from Caterham, Surrey, to a new factory in Dartford, Kent. Following the move, Caterham changed from a line-assembly system to cell assembly. This means that each Caterham technician is now assigned a single car to work on to full assembly. This process usually takes around 40 hours.

    The two-seat roadster The Caterham 21 was produced in 1994, intended to be a more practical Caterham – with a more conventional sports car look. It was announced at the British Motor Show to celebrate the 21st birthday of the company. The 21 was offered with a range of four-cylinder engines from 1.6 to 2.0 L and 115–230 bhp. Caterham had originally intended to produce two hundred 21s a year, but the more conventional look of the model proved unpopular with Caterham fans – and the production was discontinued after only 48 had been produced. Due to the limited production run, Caterham 21s are now highly sought-after.

    In 1993, Caterham introduced the six-speed manual gearbox and the famous ‘7’ grille, which are now both standard features on all models.

    In 2006, Graham Nearn sold Caterham Cars to a team of ex-Lotus managers, including Ansar Ali, Mark Edwards, and Graham McDonald.

    In 1995, the Caterham Academy began. For a starting price of around 30k, entrants get a modified Roadsport kit with a sealed Ford Sigma engine and 5-speed gearbox. A factory-built car costs an additional £2500. After completing the licence qualification, entrants take part in a car-control day, a test day, two sprints, and five circuit races. Approximately 1000 racing drivers have been created through the Caterham Academy.

    For the 60th anniversary of the Lotus/Caterham 7, a special ‘Prisoner’ model was produced – based on the yellow and British racing green car driven by actor Patrick McGoohan in the opening credits to the cult 1960s TV show The Prisoner. McGoohan had originally been asked to drive a Lotus Elan for the series, but upon visiting the Lotus headquarters at Cheshunt, decided he wanted the 7 instead.

    The 7 car is widely regarded by car enthusiasts as one of the signature sports cars of the 20th century and in 2007 it saw its 50th year in continuous production.
