Caterham Unveils SP/300.R at Autosport International Show (Video)

Caterham today unveiled its first sports prototype racer called SP/300.R at Autosport International Show in Birmingham. The SP/300.R is Catherham’s first new car in 17 years. The SP/300.R was developed for a new one-make series and the trackday community.

Built in collaboration with Lola, the SP.300.R is powered by a 2.0-litre supercharged Ford Duratec engine, expected to produce around 300bhp. Weighing less than 600kg, the new race car is expected to reach 60mph in just 2.5 seconds.

Caterham will build only 25 units a year, each priced from £60,000 excluding local taxes. A one-make racing series will be launched later and a street-legal version is also planned. For more details see the press release below.
