Caterham's new Supersport weighs only 520kg and is powered by a 1.6-litre Ford Sigma engine
11 April 2011

Caterham has launched a new version of its iconic Seven sports car, the first fresh addition to the model’s line-up for two years.

The new Supersport is derived from the race-prepared Sevens that participate in Caterham’s one-make racing series. It features a 1.6-litre Ford Sigma engine producing 140bhp, a five-speed gearbox with ‘sprint’ ratios, a lightweight flywheel, a limited-slip differential and competition-spec suspension.

The 520kg Supersport can reach 60mph in 4.9sec and reach a top speed of 120mph.

Other standard-spec items include uprated springs and dampers, CR500 Avon tyres on 13in rims, stiffer anti-roll bars, change-up lights on the revised dashboard, composite seats and four-point harnesses.

The Supersport will be available as a customer-build kit, at £19,995, or as a fully completed car, for £22,995.
