This Caterham 7 Roadsport SV is a no-compromise lightweight sports car, which is a thrill to drive on the road or the track. It is powered by a dry-sump 1.6-litre engine, paired with a slick six-speed manual transmission. The odometer shows 22,800 miles from new.

First registered on 17 July 2006, there are three previous keepers on the log book. The current owner acquired the car just over two years ago.

Its bodywork and paint is described as being in good condition, and is believed to be entirely original. There is a glossy black finish around the panels, and while there may be very minor marks and chips from road use, this is evidently a well-presented example. Carbon-effect guards cover the rear wheel arches, and there are Union Jack badges around the body. It also comes with the clip-on door panels. The car rides on dark grey lightweight alloy wheels, which are all in good order.

As an SV chassis model, this Caterham benefits from a wider cabin, giving more room for taller drivers and more space in the foot wells. It was specified with the more comfortable padded and leather-trimmed seats, which have some slight creasing commensurate with the low mileage, but no discolouration or damage. The seats are also equipped with four-point safety harnesses. The dashboard and switchgear are all in good order, and there is a Momo steering wheel ahead of the driver. There are no warning lights present, though the vendor states that the offside indicator is currently faulty.

The last scheduled maintenance was carried out in August 2020, which consisted of an engine oil change, oil filter, air filter, and fresh spark plugs. The vendor states that the car has always had regular maintenance, and that it runs and drives very well.

The most recent MOT test was on 25 September 2020 at 22,204 miles, which resulted in a first-time pass with no advisories. The tyres are all reported to be in good condition.

Accompanying the car is a full book pack, as well as numerous invoices for maintenance and servicing. The car also comes with a spare exhaust, coil springs and a spare air intake, as well as six additional tyres.

This Caterham 7 Roadsport SV offers an involving and wonderfully dynamic driving experience, and a level of excitement that few other cars can match. Equipped with the more versatile SV chassis and a number of desirable options, this is a pared-back sports car that is ready to enjoy immediately on your favourite B-road or circuit.
