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.
Among the racing –inspired features are the aerodynamic body, a steering wheel with driver-focused functionality controlling the Engine Management System, and a fully active Graphical Display Unit (GDU).
The AeroSeven is equipped with a Euro 6 compliant Ford Duratec-based engine delivering 240ps (237bh, which allows the sportscar to sprint from zero to 100kph in under 4 seconds. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Among the technical highlights are the the variable traction and launch control functions, the advanced Engine Management System and the fully independent rear suspensions combined with the F1-style inboard (pushrod) front suspensions.
According to the company, delivery of the production version of the concept model will begin in fall 2014.
The Concept also gives some hints on the all-new sportscar being developed by Caterham in conjunction with Renault and planned for launch in early 2016.
