    Official: Ansar Ali replaced as CEO of Caterham
    1340564700

    Years ago Caterham was just another kit-car company making "continuation" examples of the Lotus Seven. Now it's got its own LMP-style track car on the market, a new road car on the way, its own Formula One team, a composites division and an engineering consultancy. So who do you credit for the ...

    Official: Caterham SP/300.R claims new record at Cholmondeley [w/video]
    1340289060

    We don't envy the British for many things – certainly little in the dental or gastronomical fields – but they do know how to put on a car show, we'll give them that. While the conventional London Auto Show may not be at the same level as the shows in Frankfurt, Paris or Geneva, the ...

    1335621720

    It's not every day that Caterham comes out with a new car. After all, the core of its business is centered around a 55-year-old design.

    Video: Hardcore x2: How to flog a Caterham Supersports up a snow-covered French mountain
    1331578620

    The English are mad. And we know this for two reasons: one, they admit it; two, it's true. If more proof is needed, a video of Evo magazine's features editor, Henry Catchpole, sliding a Caterham Supersport up a French mountain in the snow should be enough. And the spindly car is missing its top. ...

    Official: Caterham axes Trulli in favor of Petrov before season starts
    1329771780

    The off-season in Formula 1 is not without its typical game of musical chairs: this driver moves there, that one is axed in favor of another, and some are left without a seat when the music starts again. But typically once the cars are launched, the contracts are signed and that's that. So when ...

    Official: Caterham going karting
    1326976440

    Anything you can do, we can do better. Or at least, also. That seems to be the guiding principle over at Caterham these days vis-a-vis its progenitors at Lotus. Or maybe it's the other way around. Both Caterham and Lotus lay claim to the iconic Seven, that bare-bones, less-is-more ugly duckling ...

    Report: Lotus, Renault and Virgin F1 teams change names for 2012
    1320606180

    What's in a name? More than you might think, particularly in Formula One where two teams have been fighting for use of the Lotus moniker for a couple of years now. The battle, as you may recall, involves two outfits – neither of them directly owned by Lotus. One is based in Malaysia and ...

    Official: Caterham sets up distribution, manufacturing operations in India
    1319716800

    It'd be all too easy to dismiss Caterham as just another kit car manufacturer. But recent years have taken the company best known for reproducing the iconic Lotus Seven into new territory.

    It's official, ladies and gents: the Caterham SP/300.R is coming to America. (What, the ladies read Autoblog too. Right?) The SP-what-now, you ask? The SP/300.R. It's the newest product from Caterham, and one of the few it has ever done that has nothing to do with the Lotus Seven. It's a track ...

    Video: Caterham R300 Superlight tackles the Nürburgring
    1308958260

    Nothing punishes quite like the Nürburgring. Drive anything around its twisting, undulating ribbon of tarmac and you know the suspension is working overtime. But it's quite another matter to see it. Unfortunately, the suspensions on most cars are hidden beneath their bodywork – but ...

    Video: Brits and Australians make world-record donut flash mobs
    1307232180

    It's not clear from these videos who owns the world record for most simultaneous donuts, but it doesn't much matter. Both attempts were good for some sweet video of cruelty to tires. The first video shows a 2009 attempt in England, which set the record with a collection of 29 Skylines, Evos and ...

    It was only a few months ago that we reported on Caterham's plans to expand its lineup. But a lot has happened since then, particularly for an automaker whose core product range is anchored in a design that goes back nearly six decades.

    Rumormill: Team Lotus to acquire Caterham
    1303511460

    Colin Chapman's legacy is a great one, without a doubt. But Lotus – the automaker and engineering firm he founded – isn't the only one wielding it these days. So, too, do a number of manufacturers that build "continuation" versions of the famed Lotus 7, chief among them Caterham. And ...

    It's not everyday that we get excited about a car with 140 horsepower and 13-inch wheels. But then the Caterham Seven is no everyday car. Lately, Caterham has been focusing outside the mold of the Seven with new models like the SP/300R and plans for further new products. But after a couple of ...
