Following the previous leak, the British from Caterham decide not to wait until the official reveal during the Singapore Grand Prix on September 22 and revealed online officially their new AeroSeven concept.
The AeroSeven Concept is based on an updated version of the Caterham Seven CSR platform and boasts technology derived from the brand’s F1 team. This includes a newly developed Caterham Engine Management System as well as adjustable traction control and launch control systems.
As we previously reported, power comes from a naturally aspirated Ford Duratec-based engine that generates 240PS (237bhp) and enables the concept to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/hh (62mph) in under 4 seconds. Caterham also disclosed the fact they are considering other engines for the future production model, so we can expect even higher outputs and performance figures.
The manufacture and tooling of components for the AeroSeven Concept will be split between Caterham Technology & Innovation in Hingham, Norfolk and Leafield, Oxon, Caterham F1 Team’s base. Production models will be constructed at the Caterham Cars factory in Dartford, UK.
