Following our recent interview with Caterham’s CEO, Ansar Ali – Behind the scenes at Caterham Cars – the company has now confirmed details of its programme to develop the next iconic Caterham models.

The programme will be owned by a new standalone engineering business, Caterham Technology and Innovation Limited (CTI), which will be responsible for the development of a completely new line of accessible and affordable sportscars. Inspired by the lightweight, minimalist philosophy of the Seven and drawing on the advanced technologies and materials from the Group’s Team Lotus Formula One and Caterham Team AirAsia GP2 motorsport operations, CTI will also undertake advanced projects for external companies operating within the automotive and aerospace sectors.

“The new shareholders are committed to investing in an exciting range of global products over the next 10 years,” says Mark Edwards, CTI’s Chief Executive. “Tony Fernandes has been very clear from the start that Caterham needed a sustainable research and development business model in order to meet the plans the management have for the road car business.

“By establishing unique operating principles for CTI, we have managed to attract a world-class team of niche vehicle engineers eager to build on the ethos of Caterham and the DNA of the Seven.”

Among the first in a series of respected industry figures to join the new operation will be Tony Shute. Joining as Head of Road Cars for the new business and, as an avid motorsport competitor in his own right, Shute is credited with bringing the ground-breaking Series 1 Lotus Elise to market.

“When the opportunity to be involved with creating the next iconic Caterham arose, I couldn’t turn it down,” says Shute. “The core principles and ambitions of CTI have enabled us to attract some of the brightest and most respected talents in their fields.”

Further announcements will be made in due course.

The new business will focus on unique vehicle architectures, high performance engines, advanced materials and manufacturing technologies in association with the Formula One and GP2 race teams.

Speaking of Caterham Technology and Innovation, Caterham Cars’ Chief Executive, Ansar Ali, says: “Creating a new product range that has the same reputation and appeal as the Seven, which delivers on the promise of accessibility and affordability, is the Holy Grail in this business. To meet the challenge, we knew we needed to invest in a new operation that would have the scope, experience and vision to deliver.”

He adds: “I feel very confident that our customers will be very pleased with the products I have challenged CTI to deliver, in addition to supporting the Seven and I look forward to revealing our plans in more detail soon.”

Caterham has announced that its new CTI operation will be based in Norfolk near the Group’s motorsport operations, and within spitting distance of Lotus Car’s headquarters in Hethel.

Caterham will die Einstiegsschwelle für den Leichtbauroadster Caterham Seven deutlich senken. Mit dem Caterham Seven 165, der auf der IAA in Frankfurt als Prototyp gezeigt wird, soll der Basispreis auf unter 25.000 Euro sinken.

Caterham mit 80 PS-Turbo-Dreizylinder
Schmal fällt damit nicht nur der Preis aus, schmal wirkt auch das gewählte Antriebsaggregat. Im Bug des Caterham Seven 165 schlägt nur noch ein aufgeladener Dreizylinder mit 660 Kubikzentimeter Hubraum, der von Suzuki zugeliefert wird. Dieser soll 80 PS und 107 Nm leisten. Fahrleistungsdaten wurden noch nicht genannt.

Gefertigt werden soll der Caterham Seven 165 ab Januar 2014, in den Handel kommt er dann ab dem kommenden Frühjahr.
