Caterham Seven 420R
ABOUT THIS CAR
This car started out life as one of our Academy race cars however it has since gone through a complete nut and bolt rebuild and conversion at the famed Attree Autos. Attree Autos are a father and son team who are both heavily involved with Caterham Cars having played large parts in many development projects over many years including our infamous 620R, today you?ll even find one of them managing Caterhams production facility and the other still heavily involved in our engineering department. It?s fair to say they are part of Caterham?s rich tapestry and they really know their way around a Caterham.
Race car conversions can come in the form of many different levels of quality starting from some cars out there only receiving a roll bar in place of the roll cage and replacing some cracked wings all the way up to the level of conversion we find here. Only a few parts have been carried over such as the chassis (after thorough inspection), the diff (after a full rebuild and conversion to a LSD), the gearbox (again following inspection), the dashboard switchgear and a few ancillary items around the car, there is no hint of its racing pedigree left. The engine fitted to this car has approximately 1,500 miles on it however it has been completely rebuilt with new pistons, rods, bearings, valve springs and more to bring it up to an as new standard, it?s even got a carbon cam cover for good measure (usually reserved for our 620R).
The car has been freshly painted in Polar White with titanium double stripes applied. Around the car you?ll find it?s been specified up to a very high level and includes 13? Apollo alloy wheels wrapped in Avon ZZR tyres, uprated brakes with quad piston front calipers, carbon leather seats, heater and heated windscreen with full weather equipment and plenty more. If you?re looking for a car to enjoy a nice day on the road or to attack the track this car has been specified to excel in both areas.
