At the Singapore GP Caterham has unveiled the AeroSeven Concept, a design study of a carbon-fiber bodied roadster that signals the styling direction for the company.


The AeroSeven Concept is based on an evolution of the Seven CSR platform and was developed with methods used by the F1 team.

The exterior design is based on the combination of different layers: the top, body-painted half stretches above the underlying body panels in exposed carbon-fiber, while at the front a lower wing visually balances matches the shapes of the hood.

The radical design is enhanced by the absence of door cutlines and windshield, which lend the AeroSeven a distinctive uncluttered look – interrupted only by the rear, vertical roll-bars.
