Description

CHASSIS // SPARE WHEELS + TYRES

EQUIPMENT
Lunar Grey Paint with Red Double Stripes, R Pack (6-Speed Sequential Gearbox, LSD, Lightweight Flywheel, Race Suspension, 13″ Apollo Alloys, Upgraded Caterham Exhaust Silencer, ZZR Semi-Slick Tyres, Composite Race Seats, Momo Quick Release Steering Wheel, 4-Point Harness), SC Widebody (Large) Chassis, Full Windscreen with Hood and Side screens, Half Doors (Carbon Vinyl), Sidescreen Armrests, Heater, Sequential Shift Lights, Lowered Floors, Exterior Battery Cut Off Switch, Race Roll Cage, Interchangeable Carbon Front Windscreen Deflector, Spare Wheel and Tyre package.

EXTERIOR
With its dual red racing stripes, race roll cage and lashings of carbon fibre this 620R immediately distinguishes itself as something a little more focused than your average Caterham. Up front sits an additional intake to feed the supercharger whilst aerodynamic front wishbones and carbon fins aid in providing some much needed downforce to the steeply cambered front wheels. Full carbon fibre arches contrast the grey metallic paint perfectly, housing the wide section semi slick tyres and lightweight alloys to give the 620R a squat, purposeful stance.

Having covered just over 2,400 miles condition of the car is excellent, presenting with a deep shine from the subtle metallic flake there’s nothing more than a couple of stone chips to note.

INTERIOR
As expected with such a focused vehicle the cabin of the Caterham is a minimalist affair. The ultra lightweight composite seats feature tactical padding to priced some for of cushioning whilst the 4 point harnesses and full race cage ensure both occupants are fully secured into the vehicle. Continuing the lightweight focus the dashboard and interchangeable wind deflector are both constructed from carbon fibre whilst the half doors and centre tunnel feature a carbon weave vinyl. For the driver there are no distractions, with a quick release Momo steering wheel, LED red dial and 6-speed sequential gearbox completing the pure racecar feel. A handful of optional extras, such as the electric heater, full windscreen and armrests provide some basic amenities to ensure the car is bearable on a blast to and from the track.

Specified as a SV (large) Chassis with lowered floors this 620R is slightly less restrictive than a standard car; measuring 25cm longer and 11cm wider it slightly compromises weight for versatility and can facilitate individuals up to 6ft 6.

Currently fitted with its full windscreen the car also comes with an interchangeable carbon front wind deflector for those after an even further extreme experience!.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Up front sits a Ford derived 1999cc Duratec engine borrowed from Caterham’s R500, however in the 620R it also features a supercharger to increase the output to 310 bhp and 219 lb ft of torque. Weighing in at just 545kg that’s more than enough to make the Caterham a formidable drivers car; with a power to weight ratio of 568 bhp per tonne it stands head and shoulder above most contemporary supercars, managing 0-60 in just 2.8 Seconds and going onto a top speed of 145mph.

Paired to fast revving engine is a 6-speed sequential gearbox and lightweight flywheel to ensure instantaneous changes, improved further by the inclusion of a limited slip differential.

Another nice addition is the upgraded exhaust system, fitted by Caterham in 2018, which uses a slightly larger silencer to get the car within noise restrictions on quiet track days.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fitted as part of the optional R-Pack are a set of lightweight 13″ Apollo Alloys, all of which present in excellent condition. Avon ZZR Semi-Slick Tyres are fitted at each corner; a road legal alternative to full slicks they provide exceptional performance on track. Included are a second set of lightweight alloys and tyres.

Vented brake discs with quad piston callipers and an uprated brake master cylinder provide huge stopping power, bringing the featherweight Caterham to a haul with relative ease.
