"Yes, the CSR 260 is a £37,000 toy. But what a toy"Body 1
I can see their point. The CSR 260 isn't everybody's cup of tea. Many won't get it at all, wondering how £37,000 can possibly be spent on something that, despite Caterham's best efforts, still looks to the uninitiated like something cobbled together in a garden shed. There are no airbags, no side impact beams or air conditioning. Electric windows? There are no windows, period. Move along to your Mazda dealer and sign up for an MX-5. There's nothing to see here.
Still with us? Good, because now I don't need to try to sway you to the charms of the CSR 260. You already know that if you want a no compromises track day weapon, there are only a handful of small British manufacturers who will do the business, chief amongst them Caterham. The CSR series marks a radical departure from normal operating procedure for this very British manufacturer. The CSR is the first all-new Seven model in 48 years, a project initiated by the Nearn family but bequeathed to the current owner of Caterham Cars, Ansar Ali. Former Lotus employee Ali has inherited a company in rude health, the CSR stacking up over sixty orders from enthusiasts who had yet to even clap eyes on the car, much less drive it.
