Say Hello To Our Little Friend – Introducing The Seven 170

Like a small undernourished golden phoenix (ref photo above) rising from the depths of COVID riddled news, comes our latest incarnation of the beloved Seven:

The New Caterham Seven 170.

Following in the demure footsteps of its predecessor, the Seven 160, and complying with Japan’s world-famous Kei car regulations, the Seven 170 weighs in at as little as 440kg, making it our lightest production Seven of all time!

Not only is it light, it’s also small. With new front and rear wings, it measures just 1470mm in width, (that’s a whopping 105mm narrower than anything else), making it also, our smallest current Seven.

Holding true to the mantra that spawned the original Seven, to “simplify and add lightness”, while remaining as light as possible, we’ve ensured we protect that which has kept the Seven name alive for years- the driving experience!

Thanks in large part to a new addition in our engine line up, a 660cc turbocharged 3-cylinder Suzuki engine, which produces not only 84bhp but also 116nm of torque, the Seven 170 boast an insanely balanced power to weight ratio which exceeds 170bhp-per-tonne, and we’re quite excited to see and hear what you have to say about it.

But what’s power and weight without a little ‘lively-ness’?

Married to this little whippersnapper, are both live rear axle suspension and some uniquely ‘skinny’ Avon ZT7 tyres (a 155-section tyre), which when combined guarantees all those who dare win, through accessible performance regardless of age or driving ability.

Available in the customary S variant and for the first time, in this heady concoction, an R too, the Seven 170 pushes that which was great about the entry-level Seven 160 and then some.

If however, we’ve not done an adequate job of installing the virtues of crazily low weight and powerful engines here, and you still need a little more convincing why not check out our latest product video here.

Lotus Silverstone Limited t/a Caterham Silverstone is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Lotus Silverstone Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
