Caterham Seven 270

The Caterham Seven 270 is the lightweight sportscar for all conditions. Combining performance on the road, as well as proven ability on track that is inherent in all Sevens. 

The Seven 270 features a new engine and specification engineered to release improved power and performance. So whether it's a Sunday afternoon drive around the country lanes, a European road trip or the occasional lap of the Nurburgring; a Caterham Seven 270 will give you the driving experience you've always wanted.

New in 2015, the ‘S’ and ‘R’ packs offer specially-tailored trim and equipment packages to suit both road and track drivers.

The ‘S’ pack is geared towards the casual road driver and includes creature comforts such as a fully-carpeted cockpit, full windscreen, hood and side screens and leather seats.

Meanwhile, the ‘R’ pack is more track-focused and is stuffed full of race-inspired goodies that will make every drive you take an event, whilst retaining its road car status. It includes a limited-slip differential, sports suspension, a four-point race harness and many other race-orientated upgrades.

The 270 is available in both the standard 'S3' or wide-bodied 'SV' chassis. The standard S3 chassis offers the compact lightweight dimensions that have made the Seven a legend in its 50 year history.

The SV chassis provides increased interior and luggage space due to the greater width and length of the car, making it suited for extended touring or for customers over 6'2" in height. The SV chassis also benefits from the additional stability offered by wide-track front suspension and increased range from a larger fuel tank, with only a 25kg weight penalty over the standard chassis.
