FOR SALE: Turbocharged Caterham Seven

A Lot of Fun for the Money

Are you looking for the most fun you can have in a car with no roof? Then you need to buy yourself a Caterham Seven. Luckily, there is currently one for sale on Bring A Trailer. 

This Caterham Seven is a right-hand-drive model that was assembled in the early 1980s by the previous owner. This car was built for use in SCCA E-Modified class. It was acquired by the seller in 2018. The seller turbocharged the 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. That engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission, and the turbocharger is a Garrett with a liquid-to-air intercooler, a fuel cell, and an Electromotive engine management system.

the car also features 13-inch Bassett wheels and Wilwood disc brakes. Service was last done in 2019 and included spark plugs, air filter, and engine oil. The car is offered with a set of back up Rota wheels, photos from the previous ownership, and a transferable Rhode island registration in the seller’s name that list the car as a 1985 Caterham Seven. 

The car is finished in red and the front fenders are black. There are headlights and taillights fitted to the car and the interior features seats with red upholstery (vinyl and cloth). There’s a black roll bar.

At the time of this writing, the bidding is up to $7,777 and there’s only one day left on the auction. This car is a bit of an oddball, but if you’re looking for a fun and affordable speed machine, this is it.
