Caterham Seven 165 | 2013 1.0

660cc Turbocharged Suzuki 3cylinders 490kg, 80bhp, 0-60: 6.5sec

  1. Ben O'Bro
    Slightly slower than the 1700ss with its missing cylinder and tiny wheels (155/65r14), a bit newer (2013 vs 1995) and still enjoyable to drive! A nice way to learn how to drift gently :)

    Lot of work taken from the 1700ss. But also new features with analog instruments. New alloys, new interior and updated suspension area.
    Sound taken from the RX7 at the moment.
    With this 165 out of the way, i can go back to work on the Academy ;)

    Also available
    1700ss : http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-7-super-sprint-1995.16143/
    Academy 2017 : http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-academy-2017.17855/
    More versions are already in development and will come later (420R, 620R...)

    After the last physics update, now this deserves 5 stars. Might be the slowest of the bunch but still allows to have some fun around corners, great to race on small circuits.
    Apart from some small last minute fixes, overall it looks like a well polished product, keep 'em coming :)

    I've found a gap between the left front rim and tyre. You can see through there. Please check it. ;)

    This Caterham model is closest to the original concept of Lotus Seven, which means the best for me. This car does not need a lot of power, sequential gearboxes, etc., everything should be as simple and affordable as possible. Mod is very good!

    Superb work mate!
    The level of detail and quality you've reached is Very Very high
    All Caterhams are fun cars... Very light, very chuckable, very catchable!
    Personally I'm looking forward to the more powerful versions though.
    Your cars are awesome... Congratulations mate!
    Keep up the great work :)
