The new Caterham Seven 160 has a combined economy figure of 57.6mpg and emits just 114g/km CO2.
This makes this entry-level version of the Seven the most economical model in the company’s history, and also the most economical conventionally-powered two-seater sports car on sale.
The new Seven 160 is powered by a turbocharged three-cylinder 660cc Suzuki engine – with live-axle rear suspension.
Thanks to the car’s light weight, even with just 80hp it can accelerate from 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds and go on to 100mph.
Production of the Seven 160 is now starting and is priced from £14,995 in component form and £17,995 fully built.
In Europe and the rest of the world an altered, EU5-compliant version called 165 is available. The number five at the end of the EU spec car’s name signifies that the vehicle complies with the EU5 emissions standards, allowing it to be sold across mainland Europe and beyond.
