The CSR was Caterham's 21st century 7, designed again from the ground up using modern motoring technology. From an engineering point of view, it is without question the most advanced and capable 7 ever to be produced. The new chassis, complete fully independent rear suspension and inboard front suspension on push rods, significantly increase the overall grip and drivability of the car, whilst the optional CSR Modular cockpit provides far more "up to date" place to be, incorporating things like self-cancelling indicators and controls on stalks.
The CSR came in one of two models, the CSR 200, or the CSR 260. Both were powered by a 2.3L Cosworth Duratec engine. The 200 was fitted with a large single inlet plenum and produced 200bhp, this was developed to deliver a smooth and controllable supply of power to ultimately supply the best possible road going driving experience. The 260 model saw this inlet plenum replaced with throttle bodies and a more extreme set cams to offer a ferocious 260bhp along with a heart-stopping soundtrack.
This CSR 260, finished in Mercedes Platinum Silver, has been finished and fettled to soak up long distance road miles effortlessly. Its incredible suspension, torque filled engine and well spread gears from its Quaife 5 speed gearbox make this the ultimate mile munching Seven. Having already ventured across Europe on multiple occasions, this CSR has been loved and refined over the years and is now ready to venture out once again with a new pair of hands behind the wheel.
