The Caterham Seven Harrods edition is tacky

Maybe those people who frequent Harrods will believe that Caterham’s latest special edition is the epitome of good taste. They’d be wrong though, because the result is a gaudy mess.

This unique Seven, which is based on a 420S, is being used to launch Caterham’s ‘Signature’ personalisation service.

To reflect the branding of London’s most renowned corner shop, its paintwork is a peculiar shade of green and gold-coloured powder-coating adorns the chassis.

In the cockpit, Harrods logos have been embroidered on the leather-covered seats and the gear knob wears an ‘H’ motif. Also adding to the effect is an incongruous wooden dashboard.

The car’s worst aspect is a ludicrous price tag, though. Whereas a regular factory-built Seven 420S costs from £32,990, the Harrods edition is an astronomical £59,999.
