SOLD - 2009 Caterham for Sale (203BHP + 156ft/lbs)


Recommended Posts

My Pride and joy is for sale due to a R500 itch that's got to be scratched. Posting here before it goes on Pistonheads at the weekend.


Late 2009 S3 owned from new very well sorted car fitted with what was one of the last Rover engines Caterham had. Carefully upgraded over its short life with all the best bits and looked after by a combination of Caterham Midlands, Clive Kenricks, Dave Andrews and Dave Walker for the major work. The car has been cosseted by me ensuring it has always been brought up to temperature before driving and multiple oil changes each year. Totally reliable with no faults or issues.


All engine upgrade work completed by Dave Andrews on the three trips to him over the life of the car. It's only been used for touring and weekend blats and has seen a track once, Mad Hatters Llandow day last September before the final upgrades at Dave's over this winter. The mileage has just turned 15.5k with only a 1000 on the new upgrade which took it from a 1.6 to a 1.8 which in effect was a new engine.

This is a well looked after well presented 'wolf in sheep's clothing' Caterham. It is very tractable around town but capable of R400 performance when you hit the loud pedal. It has and is a totally reliable car with a full history right from its build, every receipt available.
