The concept comes with a 2.0 liter Ford inline-4 engine, capable of generating 237 horsepower which has been paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Caterham uses the new inboard front suspension for better control. Combined with anti-roll bars and adequate downforce, the car maintains a good road grip and agility through tight corners at high speeds.
The exterior of the car breaks away from previous designs. Its front grille and headlights are slightly pushed back behind the line of the hood.
Its faÃ§ade has been painted in black while the top and portions of the body are in green, the front, and rear fender fade to black towards the rear.
As for the rear, the design is minimalistic. The tail lights have been narrowed down, becoming barely visible when shut off.
The car is a two-seat roadster with an extended front side as the distance between the driver and the front wheels is fairly long.
The interior of the car is simple with the driver and the passenger separated by a bar that crosses between them at shoulder level.
Other design elements are notable, these have been inspired by race cars, which include the steering wheel and gauges and instruments.
The concept by Caterham will be available in 2014. Packed with new technologies that are currently not use by any of their other models, the 2013 Caterham AeroSeven Concept is a sneak peak of how future Caterham vehicles will look.
