Caterham Seven 270

The Seven 270 is the second model in Caterham’s 2015 range with a price tag starting on the road from AED 146,995* and provides the perfect step-up to the entry Seven 160. 

Featuring the latest-generation Ford Sigma 1.6-litre engine, the Seven 270 represents the next chapter on the Caterham journey combining both road and track ability. With all the classic handling characteristics that Caterham connoisseurs know and love, the 270’s variable-valve timing engine has been tweaked by Caterham's engineers to offer increased performance and efficiency.

As a result, the 270 produces 135bhp which is 10bhp a 0–60mph time of 5 seconds, before moving swiftly on to a top speed of 122mph.

Tailoring your car options has never been easier, as new for 2015 are two specially designed ‘S’ and ‘R’ packs.

The ‘S’ pack is geared towards the casual road driver and includes creature comforts such as a fully-carpeted cockpit, full windscreen, hood & side screens and leather seats.

Meanwhile, the ‘R’ pack is more track-focused and is drive you take an event, whilst retaining its road car

suspension, four point race harnesses and many other race-orientated upgrades.

Whether it’s driving on the road or hitting the race track that interests you, the Seven 270 is the car that can do it all whilst delivering Caterham’s mantra of ‘accessible fun’.
