Some automakers build super-luxury cars and nothing else (see: Bentley and Rolls-Royce ). These companies couldn’t care less if 99.9 percent of the world can’t afford their cars, they will just keep on building them. Well, Caterham is similar to Bentley in the fact that it builds nothing but cars designed to go really fast on a track and it has no issue asking you for tens of thousands of Pounds for said vehicles.
With the Superlight R500 slowly getting up there in age and the R300 just not cutting it for some racecar drivers, Caterham knew it needed something with a little more oomph. Well, it gave us a little sneak preview just a few weeks ago by releasing an unfamiliar sight: a “Supercharged” badge on the back end of a Caterham racecar.
To date, Caterham has been content with taking small displacement, naturally aspirated engines and turning them into racecar engines. This addition of a supercharger will be the first time that Caterham has ever used forced induction. Now, Caterham has chosen to let us in on this new, mold-breaking model, the Superlight R600.
