Last year the limited-edition Seven Sprint tourer launched at Revival sold out in seven days. But this year the new Super Sprint “gentleman’s racer” sold out in mere hours after the covers came off.
“The Sprint was the fastest-selling Caterham ever but this year we have well and truly beaten that,” Marcus the marketing manager tells us. “It’s been a fantastic Revival for us.”
Like the Sprint before it, the Super Sprint is a limited-edition run of special retro-styled models to mark Caterham’s 60th anniversary. There are just 60 cars in each series.
The £30,000 Seven Super Sprint looks a treat in Zandvoort green in Caterham’s marquee in Revival’s Over the Road area. All the cars are available in special motor circuit-themed colours, others being Imola red, Aintree dark green, Watkins Glen orange and blue, Hockenheim silver and Dijon navy blue with a white noseband. (Wot! No Goodwood?)
