Vendor supplied images

The Appeal 

Just like barista coffee, you can have your Caterham Seven in virtually any style to suit the most discerning tastes. The aptly named Superlight Sigma is rated as one of the best versions, not least because it sticks closely to Colin Chapman’s maxim: ‘add lightness.’ 
Keeping weight below 600kgs makes the most of the 150bhp 1.6litre engine to deliver a power to weight ratio that would embarrass a supercar. The result is a superlative driving experience, one that is both raw and visceral. No surprise that contemporary reviewers raved about the Superlight Sigma. 
Finished in stand-out Lamborghini Burnt Orange with neat black detailing and stripes, this 2008 Superlight Sigma 150 looks as good as it goes. Some choice options that enhance the aesthetics and driving experience, such as a LSD, roof and carbon dashboard, dial up the appeal. 
It is a very low mileage car that has had just two enthusiast keepers from new. It comes to market with full service history and the reassurance of a long, advisory-free MOT. If thrills and engagement are top of your driving wish list then surely there is no better choice than this great example.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
