New Range-topper Deposes Legendary R500

If these seats look uncomfortable, it's because they are. But this car is made for extreme race-car-like performance, so seats like these compliment the package well.
If these seats look uncomfortable, it's because they are. But this car is made for extreme race-car-like performance, so seats like these compliment the package well.

Caterham Cars launched its most extreme Seven to date at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. As the lightweight sportscar manufacturer celebrates 40 years of developing and building the Seven, Caterham is re-inventing the already enviable parameters of its iconic model, with the Seven 620 R setting a new benchmark in outrageous performance.

A newly-engineered, two-liter supercharged Ford Duratec engine pumps out 310 hp, providing even more of a kick in the back for the driver and propelling the Seven 620 R from 0-60 mph in under 2.8 seconds. Priced at 49,995 GBP ($75,000) fully built, such extreme performance, pushing on to a top speed of 155 mph, will put the 620 R at the top of the current range, replacing the legendary Superlight R500.

Caterham Cars CEO, Graham Macdonald, said: "The 620 R is the most hardcore production Seven ever built for the road. The R500 claimed its place in motoring history as a benchmark for lightweight sportscar performance but this new vehicle pushes the boundaries even further."

"While I wouldn't necessarily recommend this car for those inexperienced in driving Caterhams, we always ensure that even our fastest cars retain the manageable delivery of power that makes them accessible, despite the daunting statistics."

The 620 R is diametrically opposed to the new entry-level Seven powered by a 660cc Suzuki engine that will sit at the opposite end of the range.

Like all Sevens, the 620 R adheres to Caterham's brand mantra of delivering 'accessible fun' and the traditional Caterham minimalistic, lightweight approach to the engineering of the car is ever-present.
