2003 caterham R400 k
Ok, it’s decided I am selling my R400 road car to go racing...
It has a newly rebuilt and upgraded engine with a brand spanking new fully ported over sized (Paul Ivey) valve MS2 head plus forged large cut out Omega pistons (to clear the larger valve heads) and forged rods.
It is running custom cams on verniers timed to give a VERY flat torque curve and 216bhp at 7500ish rpm . With 1227 or 1444 cams it would be well into R500 territory but lower revving. It’s done about 500 miles since the rebuild so just about run in.
Chassis is very well sorted too. It’s corner weighted and professionally set up for a 75kg driver and features 2-way adjustable Quantum dampers which are excellent.
The car has the stack dash option and comes with a carbon aero screen plus a normal screen and doors with a half hood.
I’ve just had the rear arches repainted to eliminate the usual stone chips so it looks great as well as going ver very well.
A hefty folder of history on the car is available.
Basically is got to be the best spec R400K available.
