We are just a few days away from the kickoff of the 2014 Formula One season with the Australian Grand Prix, and among all of the shakeups with cars, engines and drivers, Kamui Kobayashi is back in the sport. This year, the Japanese pilot has found a seat at Caterham after taking a year out of F1 for a stint in in the FIA World Endurance Championship. He's starting off his new role in a video showing company's latest, most powerful creation – the Seven 620 R.

One of the perks of driving for the British team is getting a chance to get behind the wheel of its stripped-down Lotus Seven successors. This little roadster packs a 310-horsepower, 2.0-liter supercharged four-cylinder – enough power that Caterham claims it can reach 60 miles per hour in 2.79 seconds. As this movie shows, you can drive it as much with the throttle in corners as with the steering wheel. Scroll down to watch Kobayashi slide the 620 R around Silverstone and give his impressions on the car.

      Love these cars but why do they have to be so expensive? It brings no innovation whatsoever, let's be honest.
