  • 2010 Roadsport SV (with many upgrades) for sale

    ForSale.png

    Hi All,

    The time has come to sell my Caterham. In Houston and the surrounding area it is well known for its distinct Gulf colors and impressive showings at the track days. I have had it from new in 2010, the build was by British Auto Specialists in Fort Worth. This car started life as a Roadsport 170 SV. I have continually uprgaded with each year of ownership making it a very quick but also a very driveable, reliable car.

    Drivetrain:
    This car did not start off life with a junkyard engine, it was a brand new Duratec 2.0L from Ford. The original setup was a single throttle body intake plenum from Caterham producing about 147HP to the wheels. My first engine upgrade after a year was to buy a superior MBE ECU (the one from Caterham is locked and not tuneable by third parties), a Ford SVT 2.3L racing head (with larger valves and CNC machining for better flow), Stage 2 Crower cams, titanium retainers and uprated valve springs, ARP head and rod bolts. After upgrading the injectors and dyno tuning power increased to 163HP. This kept me happy for another year but I got the itch again and decided to invest in independent throttle bodies. For these I went through Steve Broughton Motorsports in the UK, a company well known for their expertise in Duratec upgrades and tuning. Throttle response, drivability and power all improved, the dyno showed 176HP to the rear wheels. The exhaust including cat-bypass have all been coated by Polydyne for superior performance and heat reduction. I have the Caterham supplied 5-speed gearbox and LSD.

    Other modifications:
    Also along the way I added custom 6 point Willans harnesses, upgraded the roll bar and have a removable petty strut for added safety. For the track I remove the windshield and use a single clear air-deflector and nice carbon rearview mirror. All gauges except for the speedometer and rev counter have been upgraded to quality Stack equivalents. Additional gauges for air/fuel mixture and fuel pressure have also been installed as well as shift lights. Having never used the full weather top from Caterham I added custom made Softbits for Sevens top and boot cover for practicality and quality. For handling I switched to staggered 13" rims and Avon ZZR tires and also installed and quick adjustable camber rose-joints.

    The car has under 5700 miles. I am located in Katy (near Houston), Texas. I can provide additional information and photographs on request.

    Asking $45990
