Fuel economy

Residuals are incredibly strong providing the car is in good condition, however you'll be unlikely to get much in the way of fuel economy. On the plus side, insurance is unusually low given the performance the Caterham offers while parts prices and servicing are average.

As Caterham only builds a small number of cars each year it doesn't publish CO2 figures but the Seven uses a Suzuki engine or, more commonly, modern Ford units. The former should prove fairly economical with reasonable CO2 emisisons but of course this all depends on how it's driven.

Reliability is generally very good thanks to proven mechanicals, high standards of engineering and relative simplicity however home construction is an option and this can affect the final build quality and subsequent reliability.
