Wheeler Dealers, April 5, 2024, Motor Trend, “Caterham 7”



Wheeler Dealers

In this episode of Wheeler Dealers, hosts Mike Brewer and Marc “Elvis” Priestley take on the challenge of transforming a Caterham 7, a lightweight sports car known for its raw driving experience. The episode, titled “Caterham 7,” showcases the duo’s expertise in restoring and upgrading classic cars to maximise their selling price.

The Caterham 7, based on the iconic Lotus Seven designed by Colin Chapman, has a rich history dating back to its debut at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show. With its lightweight construction and powerful performance, the car has become a cult classic among automotive enthusiasts.

Mike Brewer, a former car trader turned presenter, is known for his passion for motoring and his ability to find the best deals on vehicles. In this episode, he surprises Elvis with a Caterham 7 that has seen better days. The car, a former drift racer, needs extensive work to make it roadworthy again.

Elvis, a former McLaren mechanic, brings his expertise to the project, adding power and luxury to the Caterham. He installs a lightweight flywheel, upgrades the air filter and exhaust system, and remaps the ECU. The interior is enhanced with racing seats, and the exterior receives a full respray from black to light green. The transformation is aimed at creating a modern sports car with improved performance and comfort.
