    Very nice!

    Does that give it EU citizenship and entitle it to Free Movement? :D

    Nice! I have been watching prices of these online recently.

    Can you give us some of the specs on your car?

    It's a 270 (or 275 depending on market), 135 hp only but 515 kg, in "Academy" version, to compete in the Caterham Academy races; therefore it's equipped for racing (FIA rollbar, harness, fire extinguisher, and so on).
    The windshield is optional (to be removed for the races), I also took the doors and top (not pictured). For the colors it's raw aluminium (like a famous f12 tdf here ;) ) with the plastic parts in British green.

    Hopefully the car will be (eventually) registered this week, first official training on March 28th and first race on 6-7 April...
    I received my FIA racing driver licence ;)

    So the it is registered now, and it has joined my other vehicles (the Ferrari is undercover, and the Ducati is hidden behind the Citroen DS - the Citroen C4 Cactus is the daily driver).
    With the doors, the roof and the windscreen, it's in "road" configuration here - all that will be removed for racing ;)
