Caterham Releases CDX Limited Edition Seven for 2009 to Celebrate Track Days
Caterham, the British sports car company that is known perhaps more than any other for producing ultra leightweight streetable track cars, has just announced the 2009 Caterham CDX Limited Edition Seven, a special edition model of the Caterham Seven sports car that has been in production in its basic form for more than 50 years of auto racing glory.
You will not find many creature comforts in the Caterham CDX Limited Edition Seven, as this is a pure track racing car first, that just happens to be street legal. The CDX Limited Edition Seven, released to celebrate the Caterham Driving Experience (CDX) weekend track days, the CDX Limited Edition Seven represents a new era of technology for Caterham. A limited slip differential is included standard, further pushing the limits of what the epitome of British race cars can do on the track.
The CDX Limited Edition Sevens are limited to a single color, gloss black, but when taking at a look at this ultra light sports car, most auto enthusiasts should be perfectly happy with the styling. The 2009 Caterham CDX Limited Edition is designed to mirror the styling of the actual Caterham Sevens used on CDX track days.
The Caterham Seven was originally a car manufactured by British sports car giant Lotus. When Lotus sought to give up production on the Seven in the early 1970s, Caterham took over the model and opened its doors as a standalone British sports car manufacturer. With 135 horsepower on tap and 13 in. wheels, the bug-like Seven does little to excite the typical Ferrari and Lamborghini fan. Until they see what it can do on the track.

To commemorate 15 years of the renowned Caterham Driving Experience (CDX) days, Caterham has released a high-spec, limited edition version of the tyre-smoking cars at an attractive price.
Caterham's motto of 'Designed for racing, built for living' is more relevant than ever with the CDX Limited Edition. Thrill-seeking drivers are urged to act fast as the first 20 cars will include over £2000 worth of performance extras - including a tuned 1.6-litre power unit - within the £17,495 asking price. A finance option is also available on this model with a monthly payment as low as £199*.
Created to mimic the highly focused abilities and looks of the actual Sevens used on CDX days, the latest Seven boasts a 135bhp version of the distinguished K-Series powerplant, a limited-slip differential and track day roll-over bar. All this creates a serious tool for the track that's equally at home on the road.
Finished in gloss black with a decal kit reflecting that of the real CDX cars, this limited run car also includes a push button engine start, Momo leather steering wheel, full weather equipment and sticky Avon tyres fitted to 13" Superlight alloy wheels. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Caterham Driving Experience (CDX) days have been enjoyed by thousands of drivers of all ages and abilities. Hosted at venues in the UK and across Europe, the popular days place licensed drivers behind the wheel of a legendary Seven - be it for the Slalom, Drift or Circuit courses.
With experience days starting from £99, participants are taught new driving skills to help push the venerable two-seater to its limits or simply to execute some tyre-smoking frolics.
