For fans of traditional balls-out driving experiences there isn’t a much better outlet than Caterham cars. While Caterham’s styling and principles haven’t changed much over the decades, this concept is a sign of things to come. Developed in tandem with the Caterham F1 team, the swoopy carbon fiber sprite will feature a 237-horsepower engine and a six-speed stick driving the rear wheels. It’s also the first vehicle in Caterham’s history to feature traction and launch control, which should translate to less frisky behavior and faster drag races. It’s due out in the UK next autumn. uk.caterhamcars.com
