CATERHAM Sprint 1991 - De Dion

Price: € 35 750

  • Year: August 1991
  • Kilometers: 5,500 miles
  • Exterior: Red / Aluminium
  • Interior: Black
  • Engine: Ford X/Flow 1600
  • Transmission: 5
  • Seats: 2
  • Steering: RHD

This amazing Caterham 1600 Sprint, with a 5-speed gearbox and ‘de Dion’ rear axle, is probably the best condition Caterham from this era you will ever find.
Having only 2 previous owners it has completed just 5,500 miles. It looks like it has just left the showroom and is in ‘Concours’ condition, having been pampered and stored in a ‘Carcoon’ in its original owners garage for 23 years. The second owner purchased the car in 2014 as a ’show car’ and consequently only drove it for a few hundred miles.
The aluminium body is stunning and looks better than new, having been polished with a special non-abrasive polish for a mirror finish and the original red ‘gel-coated’ nose and wings are in excellent condition with no cracking.
The interior is equally impressive with no signs of wear, there is full weather equipment and the hood looks like it has never been used with perfectly clear plastic windows and side screens. A black leather Moto-Lita Steering wheel and polished Lotus gear knob, add the finishing touch.
The suspension, brakes and running gear all look like new, the tubular chassis is impressive with no corrosion or damage and the underside aluminium is almost as shiny as the bodywork. The 14” Jupiter alloy wheels are in perfect condition and incredibly it even has its original ‘Goodyear Eagle’ tyres with no signs of wear , which were treated with oiled polish to protect them over the years. 
Powered by the 1.6L Ford X-Flow engine producing 110bhp, it offers great performance with its 5 speed manual gearbox, ‘de Dion’ rear axle, front and rear disc brakes and the legendary ‘Lotus 7’ handling characteristics. The engine was strengthened in 1999 to run on unleaded fuel and although not due for replacement, new piston rings, bearings and timing chain were fitted along with a full inspection of the gearbox and a new clutch mechanism fitted.
In ’show-winning’ pristine condition, this Caterham 1600 ‘Sprint’ is without doubt one of the finest examples available, ideal as an investment / collectors car.
