Considering that Caterham essentially only makes one vehicle, its array of variations on the theme can be bewildering. But the latest word from the UK has it that the British sports car manufacturer is planning on streamlining things, and making its nomenclature more straightforward.

The range of Caterham Sevens is currently bookended by the entry-level 160 at the low end and the bonkers 620R at the top. According to Autocar, the company will slot three new models in between to replace the Supersport, Roadsport and Superlight models, each to receive its own numerical nameplate to reflect (as the 160 and 620R do) its approximate power-to-weight ratio.

Based on those, buyers will be able to opt for the R pack and S pack, with the latter serving as the most extreme version of each model. All three are set to launch over the course of the new year, with the first set to arrive in the spring.

The one exception will remain the Caterham Seven CSR, which features a different suspension, styling and other features to make it stand out from the rest of the range.

That change in alignment was already carried out, to a large degree, in the United States, where the 160 isn't offered, but the lineup is arranged by numbers: starting with the 280, followed by the 360 (pictured here) and the 480 before topping out at the 620R.
