Caterham has added to its iconic range of Sevens, giving the acclaimed Supersport a steroid-induced brother - the two-litre Caterham Supersport R, which packs 180bhp and track-bred dynamics. Like the standard Supersport, the new edition has many circuit-orientated performance essentials, but gains a bigger engine and a five-speed gearbox to boost outright performance significantly.
Designed to sit immediately above its 1.6-litre sibling in the Seven range, the new adaptation's 2-litre Ford Duratec engine has proven its durability and performance on the track, having been developed during three years in Caterham's R300 race championship. Competitively priced at £24,995 (incl tax) in self-build form or £27,995 fully-built, the new model benefits particularly in mid-range 'punch' and features a 25% power increase on the Supersport, as well as 5bhp more than the R300 road car.
