A base Caterham will be powered by a Suzuki engine

The engineers that have been working on the well known Lotus Seven and the Caterham 7, its successor, are only looking to achieve performance and handling. They were looking for developing a lightweight model with a powerful engine capable of making the driver glad him or her it is at the wheel of a model like that. So that you know, the Caterham 7 Roadsport comes with a 1.6-liter four-pot capable of generating 125 horsepower. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. For the onle interested in an even lighter version of the model, please know that Caterham is getting ready to develop an even lighter one, but that will not be able to have the same power. Under the hood, the vehicle will have a 660cc 3-cylinder turbocharged unit developed by Suzuki capable of generating 63 horsepower. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered a 5-speed manual transmission for the rear wheels. The manufacturer has established a starting price of GBP17.000 for the UK market. The engineers have also offered the new base Caterham to come with a re-tuned chassis. The engineers declared that the size of the engine is not the one that matters, but the grin they have in the barometer is the answer. For this particular model, the specialists have tried to develop a unit compatible with all the characteristics of all Seven models developed by them. The package developed by them also improves its capabilities. The new car is lighter, cheaper and more economical so that everyone is happy.
