The Caterham CSR 260 Superlight is a more focused car than the
standard CSR 260. Five kilograms lighter, and stripped of a
windscreen, carpet, heater, and weather gear, upgrades come
in the form of a limited slip differential and a faster steering
rack. The CSR 260 Superlight also features ‘Dynamic Suspension’
dampers manufactured by MTCe as original equipment for an undiluted
performance driving experience.
Visible features which define the Caterham CSR 260 Superlight
from the standard model include a wind deflector, a carbon-fiber
dashboard and wings, a black powder coated cockpit, quick release
MOMO steering wheel and ‘black pack’ that disguises otherwise aluminum
A natural extension of the CSR range, this Superlight model
delivers all the thrills of frantic acceleration, pin-sharp
steering, high revving eager performance mated to a close ratio
six speed box, in a sportscar that is perfectly balanced to
focus the driver solely on driving and smiling.
With a power-to-weight ratio of 460 bhp per tone, the Caterham
CSR 260 Superlight finds itself in similar company to the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari F430.
In a now customary move, Caterham has developed an options list
that highlights the cost alongside the weight of items such
as windscreen, heater, weather gear, dry sump, track day roll-over
bar and fire extinguisher.
