Not that the existing Seven is a complex and ultra-sophisticated machine, but Caterham has just announced they are working on a new version of the sports car that harks back to the philosophy of lightness and simplicity, upon which the brand is based.

The new Caterham Seven will also be more accessible, starting at just £17,000. It will be powered by a EU6 compliant engine, and according to the company, take the brand back to its simple design roots. Not sure how you can make a car like Caterham Seven simpler, but it is the kind of car that the more you take off it, the more fun it becomes. Lightness has always been the defining feature of the Seven.

Technical details will be revealed closer to launch this Autumn.

Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald, said: “As we celebrate our 40th anniversary at Caterham, it feels good to be taking the brand right back to where it started. Colin Chapman designed the original Seven to be entirely ‘fit-for-purpose’ – a racing car for the road with the driving experience at its heart. “With that in mind, the new entry-level Seven will be uncomplicated, easy to run and, most important of all, an intuitive and exciting drive.”
