Caterham teases new supercharged track car
"Britain’s most exciting racing series just became supercharged."
This is how Caterham is describing their upcoming race car set to be unveiled in October 2012. No other details have been offered, but the first teaser image revealed shows the word "supercharged," meaning, of course, that the new race car will be powered by a supercharged engine.
This new race car could be the bigger brother of the R300 and could be powered by a supercharged version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sourced from Ford. This would lead us to believe that we may be looking at about 250 ponies, at least that’s what we are hoping for.
A few weeks ago, it was rumored that Caterham was working on a new sports car that featured a new roof and a more comfortable cabin, as well as supercharged Ford four-cylinder engine to increase output. This teased model should most definitely be the vehicle he was talking about, but we’ll have to wait until October for confirmation.
