2011 Caterham Superlight R500 Specs features Suspension Top Speed and Review

Monday, March 7, 2011

The 2008 Caterham Superlight R500 from the British sport scar manufacturer takes the minimalist light weight Seven philosophy to a new level with more power and sharper handling. The R500 Weighs 506kg and produces 263bhp with a heaving 177 lb per ft of torque transmitted to the rear wheels. The Series 3 chassis flagship model blasts out 520bhp per tonne and is capable of propelling itself from 0 to 60mph in 2.88 seconds.


Lurking under the light weight bonnet is the all alloy 2.0 liter Ford Duratec engine. Fed by its roller barrel throttle bodies, the normally aspirated, four-cylinder mill is tuned by Caterham Powertrain to unleash a monster. The continuous acceleration is transmitted through each ratio by either the standard 6-speed gearbox or the optional Caterham Motorsport engineered sequential transmission.

 

The performance of the R500 is controlled by race developed Avon CR500 tires and a suspension set up that includes weight reducing aero wishbones and fully adjustable dampers. Bringing the R500 to a steady halt is the four piston calipers clamping on vented discs at the front and light weight twin piston rear calipers. The new performance upgrades for the R500 include a sequential transmission, launch control, a gulping Carbon Induction Airbox and Eibach Springs and dampers derived from the Caterham C400 race series.
 

Housed within the modified chassis is keyless ignition, a quick release Momo steering wheel with integrated indicator switches and an innovative dashboard featuring flush fitted switchgear, ACES sequential gear change lights and a new Stack display with scrolling text. The 2008 Caterham superlight R500 is on sale from a starting price of £36,995.
