Caterham looks to expand in Europe
British sports car maker Caterham is looking to build on an impressive five straight years of growth with further expansion into European markets following its successful meeting of EU5 emissions regulations.
The company has had to make tweaks across its engine range to meet the stringent regulations which apply to all volume manufacturers and is beginning to reap the benefits despite a model range that dates back to the 1950s.
Now that its range meets the EU5 requirements Caterham is able to sell its cars across the European Union and looks forward to widening its customer base.
International business development manager, David Ridley, said: "Caterham is really bucking the trend at the moment - while most car builders are suffering because of the economic climate, we are going from strength to strength.
"We see no reason why our success in overseas markets will not continue unabated – the Seven is every bit as popular today as it always has been."
The south east England-based company has already begun to publicise its range through a one-make series it launched in France last year.
