Caterham has introduced the new Seven 620S.
Described as a "mildly saner" and "more road-oriented" version of the 620R, the 620S has an aluminum body, a composite nosecone, and classic styling. The model also comes equipped with a windscreen, a "carbon vinyl tunnel top," and 15-inch Orcus alloy wheels with Avon ZZS tires.
The interior is fairly minimalistic and features a Momo steering wheel, carbon fiber trim, and leather seats. The model also has four-point seat belt harness and a heater. Speaking of heat, the 620S will become one of the first Caterham vehicles to be offered with heated seats which are £995 option.
Power is provided by a supercharged 2.0-liter Ford Duratec engine that produces 310 horsepower and 161 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to a five-speed manual transmission with a lightweight flywheel. This enables the 1,345 pound car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 145 mph.
Sticking with the performance theme, the model has a limited-slip differential and an upgraded brake master cylinder. However, the springs and dampers are more road friendly than those on the 620R.
The Caterham 620S costs £44,995 and the company is currently accepting orders.
