Introducing the Caterham Seven 485 CSR
It's here! Say hello to the new Seven 485 CSR, our most powerful European car with our greatest ever chassis.
The Seven 485 CSR is the pinnacle of the EU range of Sevens, offering 237ps and 206nm in torque from its two-litre Ford Duratec engine.
Priced at €54,995 (excluding VAT and local taxes), the Caterham Seven 485 CSR accelerates from 0-100kmh in a rapid 3.9 seconds and can push on to a top speed of 225kmh.
With the ability to spec your car fully on the configurator - the CSR is one of the most desirable and luxurious offerings in our European range. Options for owners who want to up their luxury level include carbon fibre front wings, carbon leather side panels on the interior, a black Alcantara dashboard and LED high-intensity daytime running lights.
Adding purpose and initiative, the CSR differs from its standard 485 brother through its push-rod inboard front suspension, its fully independent, double-wishbone rear suspension, Avon ZZS tyres and aero front wing guards.
Weighing in at just 580kg, the CSR delivers an eye-watering 409 ps per-tonne, almost the same as a Lamborghini Huracan or a Ferrari 599.
Delivered fully built by the specialist Caterham factory, the Seven 485 CSR also has carpeted interior panels, a carbon dashboard, adjustable leather seats, a collapsible Momo steering wheel, a limited-slip differential and a choice of four paint options as standard.
Graham Macdonald, our CEO said it best: “This is now the ultimate Caterham Seven to have if you’re outside the UK. We’ve had to trim our EU range because of the WLTP regulations, but I’m delighted that we can still offer our continental European customers something that really reflects what Caterham has always been about – the thrill of driving."
