Iconic British sports car manufacturer Caterham Cars has been sold to Japan based VT Holdings, an automotive distributor and global dealership network. The group is already responsible for Caterham’s Japanese distribution, which is the largest single market for Caterham outside of the UK, selling 120 cars a year.

Caterham has been sold by its former owners Tony Fernandes and Kamarudin Meranun, who had big plans for the boutique sports car manufacturer when they bought the company in 2012. These plans included entering Formula 1 for three seasons between 2012 and 2014 (56 races entered, zero points) and working with Renault to create an all-new mid-engined sports car.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

I read in another article that electric Sevens were being looked at as a possibility.

Now that is a really silly idea, there's hardly enough room for the driver let alone a shed load of batteries. A bit of a change from Colin Chapmans mantra as they would now build them and "add" weight .

There is a company looking to the future however surprising it might sound.

Hydrogen powered ICE is my bet. No weight disadvantage over petrol.

My prediction: batteries will go the way of 8 track cassettes and mini discs.

Mine too going back 5 years on here, I'm rather hoping I don't have to own either option tbh.
Both will be like taking a bath with wellies on..

Saw and heard a 70 Reg Evora this afternoon whilst out for a trip in metallic BRG it looked and sounded fantastic.
