The Original Caterham Superlight was a salutary lesson in the brand, while the brand is ready to launch a commemorative limited edition to celebrate 20 years who will be the next 2016. This will create the Twenty Caterham Superlight , a very limited and special edition with exclusive details where the brand did not want to waste the opportunity to make their sport even lighter.
The combination of colors is limited, as you can see, but all this is due to a reason. The body is left unpainted aluminum and polished to only as Caterham save a figure of up to 6 kilos would win if they finish with some kind of paint. No, being a Caterham six kilos is a very important figure.
In turn, many elements are finished in carbon fiber as the wind deflector replacing the windscreen, front bumper and front and rear wings. Actually reduce weight obsession goes so far that the car is stripped to heating, an optional element. The result is nothing less than 498 kilos in total .
If this ridiculous amount of weight we add one engine 1.6-liter Ford Sigma engine, four-cylinder 137 horses , just a sport able to close the 0-100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 196 km / h. To this also helps a gearbox very short developments.
The Caterham Superlight Twenty is a very limited and special edition of the brand only distributed in 20 units . The price, not surprisingly, is not particularly high in the UK and slash 30,000 pounds. The change would mean a sport of this caliber in limited edition at a price about 40,000 euros .
