3rd brake light on 2020MY Super Seven

Hi

The new Super Seven has an elevated brake light on a couple of bits of rod.  

Does anyone know how this SS one's attached and what will be left behind?  Looks a bit crap IMPHO.Where's the middle light on say a new 420R without a spare wheel?

Car itself looks tasty though.  Not sure about the pimped out ghetto interior..!

This one's available now for £41k as a preorder for stock (I assume..).  It has 4 grands worth of leather and mohair. Plus another 4 odd grand of options.  Does one need a leather covered roll over bar?  If you do happen to end up upside down the leather will be ruined.

Anyway, never mind the price feel the quality..

The image of the parts on Caterham's website would suggest it is clamped inside the boot although there might be two small holes to drill on the the rear panel, I think it appears over the rear lip of the boot but is shaped to allow the boot cover to fit over it.

I agree it isn't a very elegant solution. I can't see why they don't glue it under the roll bar.

Not visible with the full hood on. Unlike this one.
