The Superlight R400 has long been one of Caterham's most formidable models. Equivalent now to a very highly specified 420R, the Superlight R400 offered blistering acceleration and cornering performance, with a power to weight ratio of circa 400bhp per tonne.

This highly refined and developed example has been equipped with highly regarded modifications to further improve the performance and driving pleasure. The Roller Barrel Throttle Bodies add an extra 10bhp to the standard R400/420 Duratec, but vastly increase the noise and throttle response, ultimately changing the overall character of car beyond almost all recognition. This is then tamed and refined by the stunning carbon air box protruding through the bonnet into the open air.

The refinements don’t stop there. The standard Caterham Bilstein springs and dampers have been replaced with extremely advanced Nitron units which also offer variable damping as well as usual ride height adjustments. These have been backed up with rose jointed wishbones and track rod ends to provide the freest movement possible around all of the suspension joints.

Beyond this too there have been a raft of minor refinements throughout this Superlight, including full body paint protection film, gold plated heat shielding on the driver’s foot well and the best LED lighting available for vision and safety.

This then is a truly stunning example of one of Caterham’s most fabled models and in one of Motorsports most recognisable colour schemes. What more could you want?
