This K-Series Supersport matches the mechanical specification of the original Superlight, the Seven which set the precedent of things to come from Caterham for the next decade.


The revvy 1.6L K-Series engine with high lift cams and lightweight flywheel produced an energetic and engaging drive which is hard to replicate from any of Caterham's current range. The dry sump system ensures no lack of oil supply whatever the occasion, and the 6 speed close ratio gearbox provides the perfect accompaniment to the peaky little K-Series, keeping it in its ideal rev range and providing frantic acceleration.

It then of course boasts the limited slip differential which offers excellent traction out of corners on circuits and is of course a must for doughnut practice!


This Supersport was originally ordered for sprinting and was thus spec'd with all the performance trimmings. Sadly, it was rarely used for what it was intended for and was eventually passed down within the family. After nearly a decade of road trips and weekends away it then moved from the original family in 2018 to its most recent owner who has loved it and treated it brilliantly.


Now prepared and ready to move on to a new owner, this classic style, performance Caterham would make a superb companion to any purist petrol head and truly symbolises what makes Caterhams such iconic cars.
