1993 Caterham Seven Review
Holy Crap, That's Quick. — Acceleration feels almost bike like in a straight line and it goes around corners at ludicrous speed +1. Steering is so direct and immediate that sneezing will put you into a tree. The noise from the side exit exhaust and the induction roar from the carbs will make you deaf. Your face will be covered in crap and flies will be embedded in your teeth. If it rains you will get wet - even with the roof up. Your luggage will consist of a toothbrush and... well that's it as there's no more room. On a twisty road, nothing, and I mean nothing, will live with it. Best car I ever had. Ever.
Pros: Most fun you can have on four wheels.
Cons: If you take it for what it is, none.

Designed For Racing, Built For Living
Great drivers car. Caterham isn't wrong when they say "designed for racing, built for living". It is only a 1.6 with 115bhp but it weighs shy off 700kg so you're always the first to leave at traffic... Read More
