12/31/13 -  Superformance named official USA Distributor
                 for the legendary Caterham Car line up

The World Famous Seven, designed by Colin Chapman of Lotus, was originally the super light weight Lotus Seven. In 1973 Caterham Cars LTD began producing the Seven after purchasing the rights.  For over 40 years, Caterham has retained the Seven's original spirit while incorporating advanced design technological, including technology gathered from the Caterham F1 racing team. Caterham began to breathe new life into the Seven worldwide, especially in the USA. First was the reworking the model options and designations for the Seven.

The second and most important step was to align with Superformance as the new US Distributor. Superformance and Caterham Cars LTD is proud to introduce the New US Caterham Seven Model Lineup.

Caterham signs new US distributor

Caterham Cars and its iconic Seven will be officially sold in the USA with a new US distributor as of January 1st 2014.
Superformance ( is based in Irvine, California and will sell several variants of the Seven. 

Increased American interest in the legendary British sportscar was sparked earlier this year, when X Factor supremo Simon Cowell took delivery of a Seven CSR 260 at his home in Los Angeles.

Superformance will stock a range of Seven variants, although primarily the higher-power incarnations of the car, which have traditionally been more popular in the American market. The range will include the Seven 480 and the new Seven 620R, which will top the US line-up initially.

Caterham Group CEO, Graham Macdonald, said: "The US market has always been a difficult one for us, thanks to the stringent federal homologation rules. But we know there is an appetite for our particular brand of lightweight and performance and we already export our SP/300.R to the States through Dyson Racing.

"In the last two years, Caterham has significantly broadened its reach internationally and signing a new official distributor in the form of Superformance in America is a natural extension of how our brand is expanding, rapidly, across the globe."

Sevens will be shipped to the USA in part-built form and sold as rolling chassis via Superformance's nationwide dealer network for customers to then complete the build personally.
