CATERHAM SUPERLIGHT R500 TEASER
No V8 but new gearbox for Superlight R500
A company insider confirmed to PistonHeads that the car will not have the rumoured RS Performance V8 but will feature a ‘different gearbox’.
The source would not deny a paddle shift, but as this was available on the recently announced limited edition RS Performance RST-V8 Caterham we can only think it could be fitted to the R500, possibly as an option.
The car will be less than 490kg and will have over 500bhp/ton, with an expected 0-60mph time of under 3.6 seconds.
As the Caterham website says the car is ‘classified’ and more information will be available in the spring.
