Caterham sprints to
a sell out
The latest incarnation of the Caterham Seven - the retro-heavy Sprint - has sold out in the space of a week.
All 60 of the Â£27,995 special edition built for the UK and Europe were snapped up within seven days of the car's unveiling at the Goodwood Revival.
The car, which features the same three-cylinder, 80bhp Suzuki engine as the entry-level Seven 160 and features bespoke styling harking back to the mid-1960s, heralds the start of celebrations for Caterham Cars' 60 Years of Seven celebrations, which will culminate next year.
Caterham's chief commercial officer, David Ridley, said: "We have been overwhelmed with the response to the Sprint. We knew of course it was a great product but the reaction we got is unprecedented.
"In a typical year, we'll sell around 500 cars meaning that, with the Sprint, we've sold more than 10 per cent of our annual sales figure in a week. It's been the perfect scene-setter to our 60 Years of Seven celebrations."
