has been acquired by Japan-headquartered automotive group, VT Holdings, from businessmen, Tony Fernandes and Kamarudin Meranun. VT Holdings assumes custodianship of Caterham cars having been the Japanese importer for the Seven since 2009, where it currently sells over 120 cars annually.

Motorsport, and the global track-day communities, have always played a central role in Caterham's commercial success. The brand now joins a group led by Chief Executive, Kazuho Takahashi, who shares the same passions, having raced competitively in the Japanese Grand Touring Championship, Super GT and Super Taikyu championships for the past 20 years.

Commenting on the acquisition, Takahashi-san said, "VT Holdings is proud to welcome Caterham to the group. We have not only purchased a globally renowned performance car manufacturer but become custodians of a motoring legend. We will protect and develop the Seven to meet the legislative challenges that lie ahead."

Graham MacDonald, Chief Executive of Caterham Cars, added, "Takahashi-san and the team truly understand the DNA of the Caterham brand, our heritage, our customers and our passions. As a team, we're all excited about starting to write the next chapter for this very special brand." Caterham Cars sells to 20 markets globally with exports accounting for 60% of its annual new car sales volume.
