FROM $33,900

The Caterham Seven 280 is the lightweight sportscar for all conditions. It combines stunning performance on the road with the practicality of weather protection, as well as the ability to excel on track that is inherent in all Sevens. This is the Caterham that will do it all.

The Seven 280 is ready to take on any adventurous road trip or back road blast. A large range of upgrades and optional extras are also available should you wish to add even more performance to your Seven.

So whether it's a Sunday afternoon drive, a cross-state road trip or another lap of your local track, a Caterham Seven 280 will give you the driving experience you've always wanted.

The Seven 280 is supplied as standard in component form for self assembly, complete to your chosen specification with all the parts you'll need to get your car on the road. Your engine and gearbox will be available as a seperate package.

All you'll need in addition to this are some basic tools, a little patience, some oil and a splash of gas! Average build time for a novice is between 60 – 70 hours, with our team at Caterham already putting 20 hours of build work into the car before you receive it. Further more, our technical advice line and detailed build manual ensures the process is stress free and enjoyable. Building a Seven is a unique, exciting and rewarding experience, but if you don't have the time or space you also have the option to have your car factory built.

If you opt for a factory build, your Seven will be shipped as a factory-built rolling chassis. The engine and gearbox are not included in the base price and are available as a separate package, which can then be fitted by a third party that will be recommended to you by your local dealer.

Available in left or right hand drive.

1. The Seven 280 is available with both the standard chassis and the wide-bodied 'SV' chassis. The standard chassis offers the compact lightweight dimensions that have made the Seven a legend in its 50 year history.

The SV chassis gives increased interior and luggage space due to the greater width and length of the car, making it suited for extended touring or for customers over 6'2" in height. The SV also benefits from the additional stability offered by wide-track front suspension and increased range from a larger fuel tank, with only a 25kg weight penalty over the standard chassis.
