For the first time in two years, Caterham has unveiled the newest addition the the Caterham Seven range, the Caterham Seven Supersport.

The new Caterham Seven Supersport is derived directly from the racecar that competes in the caterham Supersport Championship. The road-going version features the same performance but has been tweaked and tuned for the road.

In self-build form, the 140bhp Caterham Seven Supersport costs £19,995 (£22,995 for a factory built model), and follows Colin Chapman's 1950s concept of 'less is more', remaining true to his philosophy of lightweight, minimalist machines aiming to provide a thrilling driving experience.

A Caterham Motorsport-tuned Ford Sigma engine five-speed 'sprint' ratio gearing, lightweight flywheel and race-prepared suspension with CR500 Avon tyres on 13" wheels.

Weighing just 520kg, the Ford powerplant will propel the Supersport from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and will achieve a top speed of 120mph without breaking a sweat.

Featuring a motorsport-honed limited-slip-differential and fearing with sports driving in mind, the Caterham Seven Supersports is also equipped with uprated springs and dampers borrowed directly from its race car cousin, stiffer anti-roll bars, track biased dash with integrated change up lights and an aero screen. Composite race seats and a four-point race harness instead of standard seat belt complete the track-inspired experience.
