Caterham AeroSeven Concept Unveiled
Produced as a collaboration between all of Caterham’s specialist business arms, the Caterham AeroSeven Concept comprises some technology and styling not present in previous Caterham incarnations.
The AeroSeven has an aerodynamic carbon fibre body which has been designed to increase downforce and reduce drag and has been subjected to circuit and wind tunnel testing accordingly, with the vehicle also coming with Avon CR500 race inspired tyres. The vehicle will be powered by a 2.0 litre naturally aspirated Ford Duratec engine which produces 237 bhp, and takes the AeroSeven from 0-62 in 4 seconds.
Technology wise, the AeroSeven comes with traction control, a race derived anti-lock braking system and a fully adjustable engine management system. Inside the car, the AeroSeven boasts a new interactive graphical display unit, integrating all instrumentation and displaying information in real-time on a 3D rendered display.
The AeroSeven looks to hint at where Caterham look to be going design and inspiration wise and with the aesthetic and performance being showcased it looks like large strides will be made in the evolution of the iconic British roadster. If we are honest though, we expected something a little more realistic.
