was designed with the help of the Japanese F1 driver of team Caterham.

The special edition limited to 10 units, which will be sold exclusively in Japan, is based on the 125hp Caterham Seven 250 R. Each unit will receive a range of additional equipment chosen by Kamui Kobayashi himself.

The amendments to the Seven R 250 include front and rear guards finished in carbon fiber with a unique Caterham green painting. An aluminum tonneau was placed over the passenger seat to transform the vehicle into a single seater and the rear rim protection was also amended to ensure the safety of the driver only.

To visually highlight this Kamui Kobayashi special edition Caterham added new 13 inches black rims, a polished chrome exhaust an a shiny black paint with stripes in matte. In addition , each car will have the number 10 on the front, the number of Kobayashi's Caterham car this season in Formula 1.

Inside Caterham resorted to a more extensive use of carbon fiber, combined with a green Caterham lacquered dashboard which will be signed by hand by Kobayashi. The contrasting green seams on the carbon fibre sports seat, the Kobayashi logo on the headrest and green Takata safety belt with four-point fixings complete the interior.

With the power to be sourced from the same Ford-Sigma 1.6-liter engine of the Seven 250 R, the Special Edition Kamui Kobaiashi accelerates to 100km/h in 5.9 seconds with a top speed of 196km/h.
