Caterham to Reveal the Most Powerful Seven Ever at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Caterham has been producing one of the best replicas of the Lotus 7 for years. The company has announced what will be the most powerful version of the Seven ever produced with the new Seven 620R. The company promises of the car will set a new benchmark in "outrageous performance."

The 620R model uses a new 2.0-liter supercharged Ford Duratec engine producing 310 hp. That horsepower output doesn't tell the whole story because the Seven is incredibly lightweight. The 310 hp is enough to push the 620R to 60 mph in under 2.8 seconds.

The 620R will start at £49,995 completely built and ready to drive. Caterham promises of the car can reach a top speed of 155 mph. Orders for the car are being taken now and deliveries are expected to begin later this year.
