The niche carmaker Caterham has unveiled today the 620R model. It will replace the R500 and is set to make its public debut this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Under the hood is a 2.0 liter Ford Duratec unit that can provide 311 horsepower at 7.700 rpm and 296 Nm peek of torque at 7.350 rpm.
The new British model weights only 540 kilos and can sprint from stand still to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. On the outside we see a massive radiator grille and a new nose specially designed for a better airflow. The new 620R comes with a De Dion rear suspension and the power is put to the ground via a 13 inch alloy shod wrapped in Avon ZZR tires.
Inside the cabin the customers will find some carbon fiber accessories and a new Q/R steering wheel. When the new Caterham 620R will go on sale it will have a price tag of 58.000 Euros, 8.700 Euros more than the actual R500.Source: Caterham
