The Aerosever is a carbon fibre jet fighter powered by a 2.0-liter NA Ford Duratec chucking out 240 hp at 8,500rpm, giving it the typical mind-blowing Caterham power-to-weight ratio of  400 hp/tonne. Other space age features are the pushrod double wishbone suspension in the front, and an independent double wishbone at the rear. All of these extra toys and that crazy power to weight ratio give the Aerosever a 0-100km time of under 4 seconds.

Like all Caterhams they are targeted at the track. Equipped with active graphical display, race-inspired steering wheel with F1 style ‘Road’ mode, ‘Flash-to-Pass’ and ‘Pit Lane Speed Limiter’ functions. This concept does see a few first for Caterham, fully adjustable traction control, launch control and an anti-lock system.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
