Caterham has released new details about the all-new entry-level Seven, which will be priced from £15,000 with a market launch in Autumn this year.
The all-new entry-level Seven will be powered by a 660cc, three-cylinder turbocharged Suzuki engine – the smallest and most efficient engine ever installed in a Seven.
How much this new engine produces in terms of horsepower, was not revealed, but Caterham did mention it will be linked to a compact Suzuki five-speed gearbox that has been adapted by Caterham Technology & Innovation.
Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald, said: “It is not engine size that matters, it is the grin factor that is our barometer and we believe we have got the formula for our new entry-level vehicle just right.
“Suzuki is a leader in producing compact vehicles with extremely efficient engines and that is clearly a shared passion. We needed a particularly light powertrain but it had to be a unit that suited the characteristics inherent to all Sevens – thankfully, after lots of hard work, we have a package that works brilliantly.
