    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.

    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 ...

    1378749720

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Video: Morgan 3 Wheeler vs. Caterham Seven in a battle of Brit flyweights
    1369955700

    What's the word auto journos are looking for when they talk about what's missing in modern supercars? "Thrill." In general, modern motoring marvels are a lot more driveable, a lot more comfortable, a lot more reliable and a lot better at what they do than they used to be. But they're less ...

These aren't kits, these are the expressions of his own automotive imagination using traditional Lego and Lego Technic parts. His year so far seems mostly devoted to suspension builds and a Land Rover ...

    How do you make a Caterham Seven Supersport better? If you said more power, Caterham agrees, as it now offers the Seven Supersport R with more and just a bit more weight. In place of the standard Supersport's 1.6-liter, 140-horsepower Ford engine, the R gets a 2.0-liter Duratec (also from the ...

    Caterham has teased the image above on its website, with more information promised in October. Although we're inclined to start the CSI routine when teasers appear, the tag line appended to the picture would seem to make short work of it. Caterham's mention of "Britain's most exciting race ...
