SPECIAL EDITION CATERHAM SEVENS
British sportscar company Caterham Cars has been bought by Formula One outfit Team Lotus and to celebrate, the company is building a limited run of just 50 Team Lotus Special Edition Sevens. For an additional £3,000, Seven buyers can buy a car painted in the famous green and yellow colours of Lotus and supplied with Team Lotus additions. The Caterham Seven became famous through the 1960s cult TV show The Prisoner.

RAMPED UP 911 GT3 RS
If the performance of the 911 GT3 RS isn’t quite enough for you, you can now specify a ramped up version. The 911 GT3 4.0 has the 500hp naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre flat six engine from the 911 GT3 RSR racer squeezed into it instead of the regular 3.8-litre unit. The result is a 911 than can sprint to 62 mph from a standing start in 3.9 seconds and on to 124mph in under 12 seconds. Only 600 will be built at a price of £128,466.
