Tamiya - Caterham Super Seven BDR 1:12

Regular price $526.00

This multi-material model kit recreates the Caterham Super Seven BDR. Unlike previous releases of this kit, this version includes a display base, name base and diorama sheet to make it a great diorama out of the box!

Caterham took over production of the lightweight, road-hugging Super Seven after the original manufacturer Lotus stopped production in 1973. They have constantly innovated and evolved the design over the years, keeping the car a relevant and beloved model among amateur racers and sports car enthusiasts alike. The Super Seven BDR featured a powerful 16-valve DOHC engine, which gave the 600kg car an awesome power-to-weight ratio.
