Caterham Seven 165 | 2013

Caterham Seven 165 | 2013 1.1

No permission to download
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.
With this 165 out of the way, i can go back to work on the Academy ;)

дякую ;)
It's good thank you.
Great mod just wish it didn't have that sound every gear shift
take a ride at laguna sega : magic
This car is simply a joy to drive... i don't give ratings usually but this deserves it.
look great, feels great, sounds great, drive like an eager beagle. love it!
Seeing these beautiful works is always a joy for the eyes. My father owns a 430R, the driveability that I have to say is identical, fun, fast and light as the real that I can confirm. The guys work as usual, keep it up and I'm waiting for the other 430R, 620R and Supercup versions. Greetings to everyone!
Nice update! but we all still want a RHD Version of the Academy 2017 version ^^

Thanks :) turning a lhd to a rhd takes me an hour. But it also makes things double afterwards if I have things to change or improve...
My favorite Caterham in AC. Best handling, best fun.
Brilliant job Great fun Thanks to all involved for such a fantastic,fun car
Brilliant. Just Perfect car to drive on tight track.
One of the most enjoyable cars to drive in AC, hands down.
It's almost unbelievable how much fun you can have with so little HP! :)
Thanks a bunch for this one!
I have no complains.
4/5, just because i m waiting the evolution of this excellent mod ( template for skining as a real "7 cup" ), thx a lot to share , a real pleasure to drive and a very nice look

Hey no worries, it's the intention that counts ;) as long as you are enjoying the little 7 !
Excellent Work, Thank You!!!
Great job, thanks a lot!
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 :)
This is good, very good.
I have the chance to own 3 caterham, including a 165, this mod is really top, bravo, I remember the moments '' fun '' that provide this super cat !! I have a personal title on my pc change the sound rx7 by a sound more '' 3 cylinders "for a game experience absolutely ..... top..encore bravo !!

Merci! Your feedback is very valuable then! You must be one happy man :p
Awesome, thanks
This is a must have car, awesome model, physics pretty spot on, we just need updated sound samples and this will be perfect.
I've found a gap between the left front rim and tyre. You can see through there. Please check it. ;)

shieeee thanks, i read that too late, i just posted the 1.0, i'll check it merci
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 :)

Its my dream Car!
I love Caterhams, and this is very well done. Thanks.

Greetings, it's written in the description, the RHD is coming, hence the 0.9 version ;) but alloy wheels will not! The 165 comes with these magnifique stock rims. cheers
Thank you
