The specialist British sports car maker, Caterham Cars, has teamed up with the iconic Lambretta Clothing company to give the legendary Caterham Seven a visual overhaul for a unique 2010 Special Edition.
The British-owned fashion label, which is based in London's famous Carnaby Street, has drawn its characteristic flair and rich heritage in popular culture to create a bespoke, custom-tailored Caterham.
The paint, decals and livery leave you in no doubt about its geographic heritage, with the Union Jack's unmistakable red, white and blue dressing the paintwork. Naturally, the theme continues inside with a matching color scheme spanning the leather seats, dash, carpets and boot. Hand-stitched seat piping, embossed Lambretta motifs and a stylish Moto-Lita steering wheel finish the interior detailing.
Under the skin, the engineering is pure Caterham. Powered by a 1.6-liter Ford Sigma engine, which pushes out 125bhp, the Lambretta Special Edition can call upon 120 lb-ft of torque to propel its lightweight frame from 0-60mph in 6 seconds. The marriage of a quick-fire five-speed transmission with a purposeful chassis provides the responsive handling characteristics every Seven is famous for.
