Based on the roadster that competes in the Supersport championship, the road-going is powered by a 1.6-liter that develops 140 hp (104 kW / 142 PS) and 120 lb-ft (163 Nm) of torque.
Caterham has unveiled the new Supersport, ahead of its launch later this year.
Based on the roadster that competes in the Supersport championship, the road-going model features a limited-slip differential, a sport-tuned suspension, and 13-inch alloy wheels with Avon tires.
Power comes from a 1.6-liter engine that produces 140 hp (104 kW / 142 PS) and 120 lb-ft (163 Nm) of torque. It is paired to a five-speed manual transmission which enables the 520 kg (1,146 lb) Supersport to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 120 mph (193 km/h).
According to engineering director Mark Edwards, "The SP/300.R was our first brand new model for 15 years, but the Supersport is all about our roots. The Seven was born out of motorsport and this new model illustrates the values - accessibility, affordability and unadulterated fun - that have made Caterham the iconic brand it is today and which will ensure the Seven's continuing global success."
Pricing starts at £19,995 for the do-it-yourself kit, but the factory-built model can be bought for £22,995.
