It may be over 50 years old in spirit, but the Seven will always be a work in progress. Colin Chapman, the founder of Lotus Cars, would likely not have believed that his lightweight sportscar would last half a Century. The sales record in 2017 capped a significant 60th anniversary year for the Seven with the landmark moment being the 60 limited edition retro-racer Seven SuperSprints selling out in a record seven hours during the Goodwood Revival.
Looking ahead to the next 12 months and it is set to be another bumper sales year for the Seven with the order book filling up fast. The first grid of the acclaimed Caterham Academy Championship 2019 season is almost sold out, with this season yet to get underway.
