Unveiled recently at the Goodwood Revival, this Caterham Seven Sprint promises to be the retro roadster of every Caterham purist’s dreams.

Featuring flared front wings, a polished exhaust silencer and uniquely styled rear lights, the model was launched ahead of next year’s ’60 Years of the Seven’ anniversary.

The open-topped car will be powered by the 80hp, 3-cylinder Suzuki engine featured in Caterham’s entry-level Seven 160 model. However, that’s where all similarities with the modern Seven ends.

Exterior paint options are limited to the colours available in 1966/67 – Cream, Mellow Yellow, Regency Red, Camberwick Green, British Racing Green and Misty Blue. These classic colours are adorned with retro Caterham branding and the Sprint logo, while cream wheels feature polished hubcaps.

To continue the model’s authenticity, its chassis is powder-coated grey, making it period-accurate for a Series 2 Lotus 7.

A wooden-rimmed sports steering wheel and wood-effect dashboard take pride of place in the cockpit, complementing the hand-stitched scarlet Muirhead Scottish seat upholstery. Of course, the instrument layout is in a classic format, with the tachometer even featuring red and yellow sectors, in true 1960s style. Pity this classic roadster will not be seen in Malaysia as we have yet to get confirmation on Caterhams promised opening in the country.
