The Caterham Seven 480s

One of life’s simple — albeit pricey — pleasures is the experience of cruising the twists and turns of the open road behind the wheel of a high-performance sports car  — especially if that sports car happens to be the lushly designed Seven 480s by Caterham Cars.

Inspired by the iconic Lotus Seven, this particular Caterham Seven comes straight of Surrey boasting a sleek Black Out package that almost makes it look more at home in a Batman movie than on the highway.

Incredible Style

It sports hand laminated fiberglass wheel wings and nose cone with show-quality paint finishes that pair nicely with its variety of carbon components — front wings, sill protectors, dashboard and rear wing protectors — to give this Caterham Seven the kind of streamlined industrial look we fancy here at the Coolector HQ.

With something that looks this good, there’s bound to be a catch. In this case, the Seven 480s chassis is the only thing being sold. But at the end of the day, it’s a good thing potential buyers can customise their new ride with the kind of engine they want, a key component of their driving pleasure once the rubber hits the road.

Striking Runaround

This Caterham Seven 480s chassis is the ultimate in ultra-luxe design. Low-key yet powerful, it appeals to the sports car fan in all of us — and to the many discerning auto enthusiasts looking for that next addition to the garage.
