The Supersport R is an evolution of the very successful Supersport model, but tweaked to give it a little more punch. It houses a 2.0L Ford Duratec engine, the natural progression from the 1.6 Sigma engine, and produces a generous 180bhp.
The Supersport R has been refined to encompass many of the engineering developments and upgrades obtained from our experience of the various race models within the Caterham Motorsport series. With a limited slip differential and race inspired suspension, an increased rev limit and a tad more power, we truly believe the new Supersport R is a phenomenal package.
The Supersport R is the perfect tool for road and track use. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and will leave you grinning even after you've switched off the engine and started planning your next drive.
The Supersport R is supplied as standard in component form for self assembly, complete to your chosen specification with all the parts you'll need to get your car on the road. It'll come with a first fill pack with all the necessary fluids required to complete your car, so all you'll need in addition to this are some basic tools, a little patience and a splash of fuel! Average build time for a novice is between 60 – 70 hours, with our team at Caterham already putting 20 hours of build work into the car before you receive it. Further more, our technical advice line and detailed build manual ensures the process is stress free and enjoyable. Building a Seven is a unique, exciting and rewarding experience, but if you don't have the time or space you also have the option to have your car factory built.
The Supersport R is available with both the standard chassis and the wide-bodied 'SV' chassis. The standard chassis offers the compact lightweight dimensions that have made the Seven a legend in its 50 year history.
The SV chassis gives increased interior and luggage space due to the greater width and length of the car, making it suited for extended touring or for customers over 6'2" in height. The SV also benefits from the additional stability offered by wide-track front suspension and increased range from a larger fuel tank, with only a 25kg weight penalty over the standard chassis.
