Good things are happening these days at Caterham headquarters in Surrey. They recently announced a tie-up with Renault to make sports car together, they announced a new version of the Seven, and now they are expanding their global network by appointing an official distributor in Taiwan.
And you know, they deserve good thing. Caterham has been laying low for many many years, making only one car. It’s about time for them to put that reputation to good use and explore new things.
OMA, an importer of prestige and sports vehicles in Yuanlin Town, Taiwan and also Taipei and Taichung, has been named as the representative for Caterham cars in that corner of the world. Caterham reckons OMA will be able to add up to 50 car sales a year to the company’s export market, which represents around 55% of the annual sales. The British sports car maker also has plans to open dealerships in China and India.
The dealer will not only sell Caterham’s range of road-going cars, including the top-of-the-range Superlight R500, they will also present the SP/300.R trackday machine.
Caterham’s Chief Commercial Officer, David Ridley, said: “Our appointment of a Taiwanese distributor for Caterham Cars is another part of the global expansion plan that started two years ago. Our market research indicates that there is an appetite in the Far East and we soon to open dealerships in China and India.”
