    The MCC 7 should probably be classified as a project...it's less complete than the Dutton.

    Quite right. I normally do use project in the description. Fixed now - thanks for the spot

    So the undated Zetec powered, 5sp., Caterham, without a Caterham mfg plate, just sold for $45,500 on BAT. It was a nice late 90's/early '00's notch frame Cat with 8K miles on the clock. Worth every bit of, say, $27,500. Maybe a bit less.

    So, how did it get to $45,500? More than it would cost to buy a new, turnkey SV from Beachman Motors, with similar power, and all new everything.

    It was beautifully photographed and a traditional BRG color with a yellow racing stripe. And it had a driving video that blew everyone's mind, except those of us who have se7ens and can say, yep, pretty accurate. So add a few bucks for that, but $45,500???????

    It can with a California title, if that helps.

    Seller, 911r, is a very experienced, and admired, Bringatrailer seller. Fantastic photos helped a lot. When the ad went up I knew that the car would go for higher than market value. Interesting to note that in the video the car had old, hard tires on it, so it easily skidded around, which made for an exciting video.

    His ad and video serve as the new model for maximizing the sale price of a Se7en. I'm not sure if I found it more interesting that three different bidders were still in the running after it broke $40k, or that all the negative comments regarding the price posted by a Caterham dealer didn't make anyone flinch. Regardless, I hope the new owner feels it's worth every penny once he has the opportunity to drive it hard, and that he joins the forum.

    I was the 2nd place bidder on that 45.5k Caterham. Obviously the photos and video were spectacular, but I also really liked the stance of the car, the wheels, the old-style fenders, the rear tire, the intake filter setup, and the general patina of the whole package. I'd never seen a 7 that I liked as much. In my mind it was worth it to pay above market to have it now, in the config that I liked. Alas, I didn't win -- now I've emailed a US dealer to see if they can replicate it. From the looks of it that is a 1-2 year process :/

    Thank you for the comment.

    I was having the same feeling as you, contrary to the descendants. Obviously you and the winner really liked the package and you think it's worth whatever. Due to limited availability of 7's in the states and the amount of different packages, when you see one that fits your criteria and it's available now it's worth getting even though there is a considered "premium". I honestly wasn't even in the market for a 7 when I came across mine and it was worth going across the country to check it out, buy it, ship it and deal with the issues that it had.

    As I get older and am in a better financial situation, I find it easier and easier to justify any cost for having things done now, instead of having something cheaper (that often needs fixing) that I wouldn't be able to enjoy for years to come.

    I couldn't put a price on the satisfaction of being an owner for the last few years.

    Good luck in your searches. This is a good place to keep an eye on listings.


    Did you use the Caterham designer tool on their website? What spec did you end up making? Nothing available in the California dealership right now?
