Certification and Registration

The new suspension system, which required adjustments to the chassis, paved the way for Caterham to revise the Sevens tubular spaceframe. The resulting overhaul sees a 25 percent increase in torsional stiffness.
To improve driver ergonomics, an optional "Integrated" driver focused curved fascia wrapped around an exposed steel tubular framework. Alloy style dials, gear-knob, handbrake and a bespoke steering wheel complete the stylish new interior, with room created for storage space in the central console and in the armrest.
Aerodynamic improvements have majored on the face of the famous Seven. The introduction of re-profiled front cycle fenders, which are mounted even closer to the tyre to cut drag, and a new larger nose cone complete top mounted radiator outlets, have combined to reduce the front end lift by 50 percent. The net effect for the driver is a major decrease in high-speed understeer.
Working in conjunction with long-standing partner, AVON, the Caterham Super 7 CSR Cosworth squats firmly on Formula Three engineered 15-inch CR500 tyres, which measure a muscular 10 inches wide at the rear to assist traction and handling. Bespoke 10 spoke lightweight aluminium wheels are fitted -7" front, 9" rear - as standard.
