CSR 200 – 2007
One of the ultimate Caterhams, developed to a level beyond all others and featuring inboard front suspension and rear independent double wishbone rear suspension, the CSR ended up being too expensive to produce, and even though they were priced at a great premium above the rest of the range, the manufacturer couldn’t make a big enough margin so not many were eventually made. A few around and all greatly valued by their owners.
This one has done less than 24,000 since 2007, and priced at £31,500. Been cosseted in a garage for the past seven+ years so in excellent condition.
Selling not through any desire to get rid of it, rather through lack of recent use and the fact that for health reasons the owner now doesn’t have a licence, which might possibly be for life.
5-speed, but not quite standard. Tweaked and geared primarily for healthy road and touring use, it’s not designed as a track day tool.
Unlike standard CSR200s, it’s been upgraded to Jenvey Throttle bodies (fitted by Northampton Motorsports). Guess that it’s a bit nearer a 260 than 200. Replacement – hence remapped MBE ECU – again fitted and remapped by Northampton on their Rolling Road. Delivers 234bhp at 7,000 with a (reasonably) flat torque curve delivering 186lbft at about 6k, with 180ish at about 5k.
Serviced by PGM (Caterham Seven specialist several times), Zircotech coated exhaust headers to keep engine bay heat down, gearbox check/rebuild (was bit notchy) – done by specialists R&R) and new differential fitted (3.38 fitted rather than standard 3.62 which – checked on Rolling Road – gives an Autobahn potential 4,000 rev speed in 5th of 92.6mph).
No desire to sell it other than the lack of use I can give it. Always garaged and in generally very good all round condition. Bulkhead on rivnuts, new rear wings and stainless chip panels (wrapped clear) as are the front sections of the front wings and nosecone.
Unused since last Summer, mileage at last MOT was 23,564, last used in August 2020.
Plenty of other (minor) tweaks such as (smaller) suede MotoLita wheel, DIN power sockets (for USB etc. and other aspects that will be seen when viewed, such as rear draught screen fabricated to fit on roll bar, LED headlamps and rear lights etc. All practical and useful additional mods.
Never had lots of miles put on it as MOT history will show. Always kept cosseted in a garage when not in use. And as seen from above plenty spent on it over the years (since 2014)
Sited not far from Marlborough, a few miles to the West. For more info or to view call 07831 362179
