Caterham Unveils Race-Car Based Supersport

The New Caterham Supersport is derived directly from the race car that competes in the Caterham Supersport championship, borrowing all of the track version’s performance essentials and then, for good measure, is fine-tuned for the road.

Under the bonnet is a 140bhp 1.6 litre Ford Sigma engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. Weighing just 520kg, this 140bhp Ford engine manages to take the Supersport from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 120mph. Not bad!

Other highlights include race-prepared suspension with CR500 Avon tyres on 13″ wheel, motorsport-honed limited-slip-differential, uprated springs and dampers, stiffer anti-roll bars, track biased dash with integrated change up lights, an aero screen, composite race seats and a four-point race harness instead of standard seat belt complete the track-inspired experience.

Factory-built Supersport will cost £22,995. Enthusiasts are also able to purchase it as a DIY kit for £19,995.
