The feat makes the Caterham Seven, the firm's lightest car yet, the highest a car has ever been built above ground level.

01 Oct 2021 | International News : U.K.

A team of Caterham engineers has celebrated the launch of its lightest ever production car, the Seven 170, by building one from scratch 137m in the air on the Brighton seafront in the U.K.

The build, which was completed inside six hours but would usually take one person 100 hours to finish, took place inside the British Airways i360 pod tourist attraction.

The build and launch event were not only the first time a car had ever been built in one of Britain's tallest visitor attractions, but the first time a car had been inside the pod at all. In addition, from ground level it was the highest known height a car had ever been built.

Visitors were able to watch the car build take place, using Halfords Advanced hand tools, in the glass viewing platform while taking in stunning, 360-degree views of the south coast and the English Channel.
