Caterham 7 Super Sprint | 1995 1.02

1700cc Ford Crossflow Engine. 530kg & 133bhp

  1. Ben O'Bro

    Welcome to this new Caterham Mod​

    Inspired by a good old 1995 Super Sprint i owned for several years, i wanted to share the joy it brought me on the roads.


    Declined here in 3 versions. They all handle the same.
    ♦ LHD
    ♦ RHD
    ♦ Clamshell (long wings more classic looking)


    Also available :
    Caterham 165 - http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-seven-165-2013.17002/
    Academy 2017 - http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-academy-2017.17855/
    Fictional R500 - https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/caterham-roadster-500.20619/
    More versions are already in development and will come later (420R, 620R...)


    ♦♦ Templates ♦♦
    You can find PSD Templates here :
    http://benobro.org/RD/bo_caterham1700_template_skins.7z - 46mo
    Layers inside the PSD can be hidden or not to make LHD or RHD skins. I included the template for license plate and the free font.

    Good mod! Feels great to drive, I only have two minor complaints:

    1. I think the dirt on the car and windshield is a bit overdone
    2.CM gives me an error about missing parent files, but changing it to be independent seems to work without issue.

      check out the body_base_map.dds in skin chrome for the LHD for example ;) pink-ish is chrome, rest is paint effect, black is matte. Hope this helps! cheers

    Very nice, pretty close to perfect, sound just is not up to great quality of rest of the mod.
    Would have liked to give four and half stars, but unfortunately its not possible.

    Thanks for your continued efforts to improve this superb car even further. It's easy to see why you enjoyed your real Caterham so much :)

    And no need to apologise for continuing to update where necessary, I'm sure everyone appreciates your commitment to tweak and refine this wonderful machine :)
    I know I do... Superb, high quality work!
    (especially being your 1st mod)

    Thanks Ben & Jack :)

      Indeed it's weird/sad not to see it licensed in Assetto! On the bright side, it's giving me a challenge to add them all :p

    Thank you, this is as good as it gets.
    I never driven one of those IRL, but now I feel I know how it must feel.
    In VR, the attention to details all over and the way they drive is demonstrating AC simulation at his best.
    Definitely one of those must have mod for AC.

    Awesome work lads, thanks for your continued work on this and the technical details that go along with the awesome model.

    I tested my new road FFB mesh with this car as it both visually and physically gave me all the information I needed.

    A top quality, Must have mod... Simple as!

    The model is superb, very hig quality, physics are brilliant, but I think there's a problem with sound !

    It seems that there's two motor sounds running in the same time. Just on my computer, maybe ?

      Author's Response
      thanks you for the message :) For the sound, it seems the reverb effect is messing up the sound for some reasons. Besides, i can't do much more with the sample i found :( you can always update sound to escort 1600 with content manager if you'd prefer
