Caterham sports car to cost £35,000

Caterham sports car

According to a recent report from Autocar, the Caterham sports car will cost around £35,000 when it goes on sale next year.

The high-performance coupe will be shared up to 70% of its parts with the Renault Alpine and will reportedly fill the market gap left by Lotus’s recent woes. Caterham aims for 3000 units per year and wants to appeal to the professional female market.

The car is rumored to get a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces around 300 hp. It could also be fitted with an advanced kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) to help link it to Formula 1.

"When you’ve got an owner with an airline that will fly 40 million people there next year, you’ve got a big target market," said Mike Gascoyne, Caterham Technologies CEO. "If we do a good car, people will recognise it - and I’m confident that they’re going to. In a lot of parts of the world, Caterham isn’t that well known, and therefore we’re free to define the brand."
