Caterham releases teaser for Superlight R500

Caterham Superlight R500

For those of you not familiar with Caterham Cars, the company manufactures special lightweight sports car and sis based in Caterham, Surrey, England (kind of like the Detroit of the UK motor industry). Currently their only model is the Caterham Seven, which they bought the rights to from Lotus.

Anyway their most anticipated car is the Superlight – intended for track and fast road usage. Caterham has just released a teaser image for the car which is expected to be launched later this spring.

Rumor has it will develop 500-hp from a 2.0 liter or 2.3 liter Ford engine. That will give it the ability to do 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and a top speed above 150mph. Weight is said to be less than  500kg, thanks to parts like a carbon fiber dashboard and cycle wings, and composite seats. We’ll have more details and pricing when the car is launched.
