Parkers overall rating: 3.2 out of 5 3.2

Race harnesses will stop you going anywhere in an accident and the chassis is reinforced with aluminium honeycomb but this is low volume, back to basics motoring so there are no airbags, traction control or even ABS. On the plus side, security is good with an immobiliser generally fitted as standard and a steering wheel that is often removable.

The Caterham is certainly not an everyday car, so practicality isn't a huge factor for most owners, who have one as a second car they can use at the weekend. The flimsy fabric roof is simple to unclip but can be difficult to reattach - especially if there's a sudden downpour, while the plastic doors rarely fit well. Unsurprisingly there's no stowage up front but there is a very small boot .The long bonnet, wide turning circle and sensitive throttle mean it’s also a struggle to drive in slow traffic
