Caterham has come a long way from making Lotus replicas. Sure, it still makes the classic Seven in all its many iterations, but these days the small British outfit runs its own Formula One team, offers the SP/300.R track car, and is partnering with Renault on the development of an entirely new sports car. But that's not the end of it.

The firm has got a "new ultra-high performance model" in the works, and it will unveil it – in concept form, at least – during the Singapore Grand Prix later this month. Caterham isn't saying much about the concept, save for that it incorporates "significant input" from the company's other divisions, including its engineering consultancy, composites laboratory and racing team.

We'll have to wait until September 20-22 to find out more, but in the meantime Caterham is running this teaser image on the side of the F1 cars that Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde are driving in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza this weekend.

Caterham F1 Team Racecars Preview New Concept Caterham Road Car In Monza

Autodromo di Monza, Italy - 6th September 2013

Caterham F1 Team's racecars, driven by Charles Pic (#20) and Giedo van der Garde (#21), will bear the silhouette of a brand new concept Caterham road car on the side of the two CT03s at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza this weekend.

The new ultra-high performance model will be unveiled by Tony Fernandes, Chairman of Caterham Cars, during the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix race weekend (September 20th to 22nd).

The concept is the first model to be designed and developed with significant input from all of Caterham Group's specialist business arms – Caterham Technology & Innovation, Caterham Composites and Caterham F1 Team.

Separately, Caterham's all-new two-seater sportscar, which is being developed as a joint-venture with Renault-Alpine, continues to move apace ahead of its launch in early 2016.
