Oh my, it looks like there’s an absolute flurry of activity today with Caterham Cars, which isn’t surprising, of course. This one centres around a product – to celebrate its new ownership, having being acquired by Team Lotus Enterprise, the Brit sportscar marque has announced that it will build a limited run of Team Lotus Special Edition Sevens.

Twenty five units with Team Lotus upgrade packages – which can be applied to any variant up to the range-topping 263 hp Superlight R500 – will be built for the UK, with the same number allocated to export markets.

For an additional £3,000 over the price of a chosen model, the SE Seven will be specially-liveried in the famous green and yellow colours of Lotus and will come with a raft of bespoke Team Lotus additions; included in the package is an invitation to a customised tour of the Team Lotus F1 factory in Hingham, Norfolk.

In the cockpit, each SE will bear a plaque carrying the signatures of Team Lotus F1 drivers, Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen, and owners will also receive a Seven history book, signed by chief designer Mike Gascoyne. And so, the marketing begins!
