CSR?[edit]

The article states that the CSR is based on the SV chassis. This is surely wrong; the CSR chassis is completely different, with IRS and so on. Stephen Grant 15:46, 29 December 2006 (UTC) Stephen Grant

Stephe, yes, absolutely, the CSR chassis has the wide body dimensions but is different in many ways. However, I suppose it's arguable that it is 'based' on the SV chassis.

I added a few headings to try to make the article more structured and also started filling out the current range details. Stephen Grant 16:04, 29 December 2006 (UTC)Stephen Grant nike ta mere

Various[edit]

I removed some of the more non-enclyopedic information (which is the best engine, etc.,etc.) I hope no-one objects. Stephen Grant 16:18, 1 January 2007 (UTC)Stephen Grant

I've started filling in detail concerning the history of the range. I apologise for any factual errors and assume that someone will be along shortly to correct them. Stephen Grant 18:19, 1 January 2007 (UTC)Stephen Grant

Added a very very basic "Racing" section, with info that others have already put in there. Needs lots of fleshing out. 89.241.205.182 20:36, 1 January 2007 (UTC)Stephen Grant

Added a "chassis and suspension" section with some basic information. Stephen Grant 19:58, 2 January 2007 (UTC)Stephen Grant

Added some detail to the "current range" section. Stephen Grant 16:58, 5 January 2007 (UTC)Stephen Grant

Did some minor editing to reflect the (largely complete) move from k-series to Ford engines, and the launch of the new R500. Stephen Grant —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stephen Grant (talkcontribs) 13:55, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

16th September 2008. Apologies to whoever posted the photo in the 'Suspension and Chassis' section. I removed it because that isn't a photo of a Caterham; it's some other 7 derivative. No offense intended. stephen —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stephen Grant (talkcontribs) 11:25, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Literature[edit]

I suggest that the literature section ought to have less prominence. Perhaps a downgrade to a 'further reading' section would be most appropriate. 31.53.4.157 (talk) 20:47, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Hagiographic[edit]

Some of the text reads like a boastful company brochure. Eg : "Chapman, a Royal Air Force pilot.... After the war, Chapman became a highly successful race driver"

Chapman was without doubt an extraordinary man, but his own wiki page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Chapman) shows that these statements are exaggerated. He was very briefly in the RAF, but not during the war. His record as a racing driver was not remarkable or "highly successful". He was a magnificent designer and entrepreneur, surely the bare truth is sufficient? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.100.251.189 (talk) 20:17, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Seven 360, 480[edit]

These are now available, but not fully assembled.

Fully Assembled[edit]

It looks like none are fully assembled.
