Caterham offers a six step assembly option to allow you to build your own car.

Step 1

Specify your model and options from the Caterham pricing and specifications list.

Step 2

The chassis, nosecone, front and rear cycle wings begin their journey at the paint shop and arrive at the factory fully painted in your chosen colour. The painted chassis then undergoes preparation on the production line.

Step 3

Preparation of your garage or workspace can begin. We will then be in touch to book a delivery date at a time to suit you.

Step 4

The chassis, boxed components, assembly guide, engine and gearbox are delivered directly to your garage or workshop. the assembly guide is designed to help you through the various stages of the build. The labeled boxes coincide with each step, enabling you to identify which box you need at any given time.

Step 5

The final stage in making your Seven road legal is the requirement of an Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) test. Our Service workshops are on hand to help you with checks. On passing the IVA test your car is then eligible for registration with the DVLA.

Step 6

On receipt of the DVLA registration documents, it’s time to hit the open road…


In September 2021 we visited the British Airways i360 in Brighton to celebrate the launch of the new Seven 170. Teaming up with Avon Tyres and Halfords Advanced, our team constructed from base components through to completion in just 6 hours... at over 450 ft in the air.

Naturally, we couldn't let you sit through 6 hours of footage, so here it is in a lovely 52 second snapshot.

The cars

Proud to be one of the few British automotive manufacturers, we’ve thrived due to our engineering excellence and their dedicated pursuit of producing something simple.

That’s why today’s incarnation of the Seven remains as true to its roots- focusing on driver experience- as it did back in 1957.

At its heart, the Seven is and will always be Fun!
