With close to 1000bhp-per-tonne, the figure is nearly double that of the Bugatti Veyron.
Caterham Cars has announced all eight Caterham-based Levante supercars scheduled for production have been sold. First launched this past spring the Caterham RS Levant is hand-built by RS Performance with assistance from Caterham. At £115,000 the Levante boasts RS Performance’s unique, in-house designed supercharged 500+bhp 2.4 litre V8 engine, housed in a special version of the lightweight Caterham SV chassis. With close to 1000bhp-per-tonne, the figure is nearly double that of the Bugatti Veyron.
Caterham sales & marketing director, Andy Noble, commented: ‘The fact that all eight Levantes have been sold so quickly comes as no surprise. Over the last 51 years, the Seven has created and met the demand for those searching for the purest form of driving available. For drivers looking for the ultimate, the Levante facilitates that by taking Colin Chapman’s original design to a staggering new level.’
