Caterham 7 Lambretta Special Edition

I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but here goes. As branding tie-ins goes, I don’t think Lambretta has always got it right over the last few years, but occasionally, they hit the nail right on the head.

This is a link up between two iconic brands… Lambretta & Caterham, and I think they both come out of it winners.

The union jack livery, which could have looked oh so cheesy, has been applied with a bit of a twist which really works well, and it’s the look has been carried through to the interior; seats, dash, carpets… even the boot.
It’ll be a tad faster than my old Series 2 as well, it’s powered by a 1.6 Litre Ford Sigma engine that will go from 0-60 in 6 seconds.

On sale in 2010 for £26, 995, you’d need to be pretty flush to get one, but it is kinda lovely.
