The original Superlight burst onto the scene in the late 90's, fully kitted out with 6 speed gearboxes, limited slip differentials, swathes of carbon fibre and sporting the 1.6L K-Series engine, producing around 135bhp and a 0-60 time under 5 seconds. Each of these were numbered and provided with a plaque to show authenticity. They were a huge success, but demand was there for something with a little more juice. It was therefore quickly followed up by VHPD powered Superlight R, producing closer to 190bhp and a 0-60 of under 4 seconds.

By the early 00's these original Superlights were replaced with the R300, R400 and R500 range, producing a power to weight ratio similar to their names.

This original Superlight, number 115, was originally ordered and registered at the turn of the millennium in the incredibly striking Arrowstar Orange. In 2015 it was sold to its most recent owner who has done nothing short of throwing the kitchen sink at it. In his 6 years of ownership he has spent a shade under £30,000 on upgrades and maintenance, making this one of the most heavily doted upon Caterhams around. These upgrades included the immense new powerplant, built and installed by Ratrace Motorsport in Hertfordshire. This monster K-Series produces Superlight R500 rivalling performance in a beautifully refined way. No corners have been cut in the creation of this fantastic machine and now some lucky buyer has the opportunity to reap the benefit of this extravagant investment.
