For those who haven't received this e-mail from Simon Lambert.............







With the new CSR260's now in production and customer deliveries commencing shortly, the last Caterham Superlight R500's have left the Dartford factory.


However, due to a last minute order change, we have been left with one new R500 engine.


This engine is being made available for sale at a special one-off price, to anyone looking to upgrade their car - to 230bhp...


For further details, please contact me on 01322 625804, or reply to this email.

ROFLMAO, brings back memories of Cadbury's Smash advert 😬


To coin a phrase "No Way, Jose"


They could sell it to SAIC who could clone them and knock them out for 3K.




See willfly.net for more info.

Don't suppose £10k is far off the mark for this state of tune. Hellier are selling a 240bhp 1900K for £12k and a 210bhp version for £8k so 230bhp is somewhere in between. Of course comparing it with larger capacity engines (e.g Duratec!) is bound to be unfavourable.


Yellow SL *cool* #32

A little bird tells me that the engine itself is £10k plus VAT. Add on various essentials such as triple pass rad and dry sump, and labour to fit, and VAT on that lot....


... it could be more than £15 k *eek* *confused* 🙆🏻

AFAIK new engines used to be about 12 +VAT (which is why I sold my R500 given my propensity for needing new r500 engines). So if it is 10+ VAT then not a bad deal if you want a new R500 engine. I guess it depends on whether it is a complete unit with all ancillaries or not.


Wow no more R500s that's sad.
