2004 Caterham Superlight

Caterham Superlight - A road car yearning to be let loose on the track

The Caterham Superlight has been designed to achieve the best possible dynamic package from the already competent Caterham Roadsport. This has been achieved by reducing the weight to a bare minimum whilst packaging the car with as many performance-enhancing options as possible.

Although the car is supplied fully road legal, this unique model contains many track options. The stripped out interior with carbon fibre dashboard, Caterham four point race harness, Caterham composite race bucket seats and wind deflector in lieu of windscreen are fitted as standard.

Standard equipment includes:

Competition specification engine
Carbon dashboard
Caterham 6 speed gearbox
Ventilated front discs with four pot calipers
de Dion competition derived rear suspension
Adjustable rear anti-roll bar
Wide track and bespoke road tyres
The complete package gives this car a total kerb weight of only 485 kgs, which is 65 kgs lighter than the standard Roadsport model. (R500 in standard form weighs in at 465 kgs). If you want to personalise your car, there is a list of options to add to your specifications and customers requiring the added practicality of windscreen and full weather equipment can of course specify these.
The Superlight Seven is available in three different guises.
