Ah, car-that-looks-like-a-Caterham-but-isn’t, right? Correct, it’s a Westfield, and if you live outside the UK the chances are you’ll never have heard of it. No-one this side of the lawyers involved quite knows the ins and outs of what occurred when Colin Chapman sold the rights to the Lotus Seven to Caterham, but Westfield build something very similar, as do Donkervoort in the Netherlands. Hang on, I think I do know Westfield. That must be because you’re old enough to remember the SEiGHT. Yep, until 2010 Westfield would sell you this body with a V8 engine in it. It was a mad, mad thing. Usually a Rover V8 with loads of lumpy torque so you could still pull away in third and rinse everything. But that was then. Let’s have a look at what we have now.
