The basics: Caterham has conceived the Roadsport as an ‘all-seasons' Seven, rather than a dry-weekend warrior, the theory being that with a more benign specification, you'll be able to use the car more (even if it is a lower intensity) and therefore get more from it in the long term. The Roadsport isn't track-biased, and comes kitted out with a roof, windscreen,15-inch alloys, heater, full carpets and all the rest of the gubbins. You can even have a radio. There's no LSD as standard, but you do get a five-speed gearbox with longer ratios for less gearchanging, armrests and big fat seats in an attempt to make it more comfy. Essentially this is Caterham's version of the Maybach.
