    1395749640

    1393549140

    All modern Caterhams are based on the Lotus Seven – a small, lightweight roadster developed by Colin Chapman back in 1957. That car has evolved into an entire range of models, spanning from the new, affordable 160, shown below in the latest video from XCAR, to the maniacal 620R. Over the ...

    Report: Alpine delayed over 'creative tensions' between Renault and Caterham
    1392642000

    The rebirth of the Alpine brand is going to have to stay in the womb a little longer, it appears. Autocar learned that Renault's styling mockup was secretly shown to possible clients recently, and the feedback was tepid enough for the French company to send the design back to the drawing board. ...

    Report: Caterham AeroSeven launch delayed until 2015 for complete redesign
    1389471180

    Caterham may have found a new distributor in the US, but it will still be some time before buyers get the chance to pick up a production version of its AeroSeven Concept.

    Caterham has made no secret of its desire to expand beyond the continuation Lotus Sevens that are its core business.

    Official: Caterham expands into motorcycles with three new concept bikes
    1383687540

    If there is any car on the road you might consider essentially a four-wheeled motorcycle, surely it's the Caterham Seven. So it hardly seems much of a stretch that the British automaker that forged its reputation building Lotus continuation cars would branch into motorcycles. And that's precisely ...

    Official: Caterham Seven 160 redefines back-to-basics
    1382540220

    It doesn't get much more basic than the Caterham Seven. The original Lotus design was – and remains – the ultimate embodiment of Colin Chapman's "add lightness" ethos. But even among Sevens, some are more basic than others. And this is the most basic of them all. Caterham has ...

    Official: Caterham unleashes AeroSeven concept in Singapore [w/video]
    1379669700

    There are few things we like quite as much as a speedster. We're not talking about a chopped-windshield, cowled rear deck convertible here, though we like those too. We mean extreme sportscars with no windshield or convertible roof to speak of whatsoever. Cars like the Pininfarina Sergio, Aston ...

    Teased: Caterham previews new concept at Monza
    1378749720

    Caterham has come a long way from making Lotus replicas.

    Rumormill: Suzuki considering Cappuccino revival?
    1376429520

    It's not a secret that a few of us here at Autoblog have a crush on Japanese Kei cars. The diminutive sizes and cheeky looks of most of the segment are certainly endearing factors, but it was the sporting Kei cars of the 1990s that made for the most delicious forbidden fruit. Suzuki's entry in ...

    1373410800

    With apologies to The Beatles, it was 40 years ago today (well, sort of...) that Caterham taught the Seven to play. The car as you're likely aware, is a direct descendant of the quintessential Lotus of the same name. As befitting an anniversary year, Caterham has decided to up the Seven's ante by ...
