Meet the Caterham 620R image

Caterham has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the 620R, which will replace the top of the line R500 version.

The brand new Caterham 620R will serve as a replacement for the R500 model and the vehicle will make its public debut during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, this weekend. The Caterham 620R has a gunmetal chassis, a race-spec cooling system, a new nose cone, which will improve the air flow, a De Dion rear suspension system, 13-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Avon ZZR tires, racing seats, carbon fiber interior panels, Q/R racing steering wheel and some other tweaks.

The Caterham 620R is powered by a 2.0 liter Duratec engine, made by Ford, which is producing a total output of 311 HP (232 kW), at 7,700 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 296 Nm (219 lb-ft), available at 7,350 rpm. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint will be done in just 2.79 seconds. The Caterham 620R will be priced from 58,000 euros (49,995 GBP / 74,600 USD) once it will go on sale later on this year. Additional details on the Caterham 620R are limited for the moment and will be announced this weekend, during the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
