Caterham 620R slays Volkswagen Golf GTI - Caterham's fastest ever road car tested
The Caterham 620R is one of the world's most extreme lightweight sports
cars ever built. Steve Sutcliffe puts it to the test.

The Caterham 620R packs wide-track front suspension, a supercharged
2.0-litre Ford Duratec motor producing 311bhp and 219lb ft driving the back
wheels through a straight-cut, sequential six-speed gearbox and
limited-slip differential. It is a few ancillaries away from being a race
car, and not much this side of a hypercar such as the Bugatti Veyron could keep pace with it. It
is extreme in a way only drivers of a BAC Mono or Ariel Atom could
understand. The fastest Caterham road car ever is also one of the most

Sabine at the ring, tuned Porsche GT2 vs Caterham CSR260
Hmmmmm, the one circuit where a fettled GT2 with a sequential would smash a
high powered (yet windscreened !) caterham and Sabine manages to draw !
Walter Röhrl has managed 7.42 here in a 415ps GT3 and i can't see a stock
CSR260 being any quicker than that .... Staged TV nonsense, but fun to
watch nevertheless. And its laughable how if a woman can drive she suddenly
becomes Emmanuelle Beart & makes all men weak at the knees.... look
closely, objectively & ignore the opposite lock: definitely a 7-pinter !
2013 Caterham R620 Development Car; one lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife
Caterham were here for the recent F1 GP at the Nürburgring. They brought
with them the engine and transmission test mule for the new R620 supercar.
This little green machine started life as 'just' an R500, before it got the
new SaDev sequential gearbox and the supercharged R620 motor. I was only
allowed one lap and I've got no prior experience with a flat-shifting
sequential, so I didn't go too crazy, but it was still quite quick...
