Last Updated On: 24/07/2017
The new 620R is the fastest road car Caterham has ever made and features a wide range of performance enhancements that will see it surpass the R500's legendary status... and then some. By harnessing the Carbon Fibre trickery of the Caterham F1 Team and the technical prowess, sheer desire, experience and all round know-how of their crack team of engineers, Caterham has created a monster.
Lurking at the heart of the car is the same Ford 2.0 litre Duratec engine as found in the R500. Except Caterham has Supercharged it. That's right, in Caterham's own words they have done the automotive equivalent of attaching a rocket to a missile. they've taken something really fast and made it really fast. Delivering a mighty 310bhp and a huge amount of torque, the 620 R is equipped with the sort of performance that is very hard to explain within the constraints of the English language or the laws of physics. Performance figures of a 0-60mph (97km/h) time of just 2.79 seconds and a top speed of 155mph (249km/h) appear to back this hyperbole up.
Furthermore, the car has been developed and honed to not only be capable of withstanding the power, but to harness it. With an entirely new sequential gearbox and uprated drive train coupled to newly developed suspension components courtesy of the Caterham F1 team, the 620R delivers more feel and handles better than anything they've ever built.
