  • Questions....

    Hi All,

    Have been looking for a sports car for a few months now and I agree with some of the posts about prices for the "new" models.

    How does Caterham justify the difference in pricing between the UK and USA? Quantity I guess, but demand is elastic with price....

    Will they export a UK model to the US or are there homologation differences (real ones not BS)

    I saw a 480 (silver & black) being advertised by Caterham USA, is it worth $78k?

    Thanks all, its either that or a new 2015 Vette......Not as purist I know but looks a lot better value

        Maybe you already know this, but dealer advertised pricing in the U.S.A. now typically excludes engine and gearbox.

          Hillbank breaks down the cost structure:

          Nosebleed expensive, though.

            It's hard to understand how a 480 roller to Hillbank is more expensive than a CSR kit purchased from Beachman (both sans engine/tranny).

              I *think* the CSR was ordered before the change.

                Yes that CSR was ordered before the change.

                  BCS - What did you decide, Caterham or Corvette?

                    I've had both, and would still choose the Caterham. It's not for everyone (unfortunate, since originally it was supposed to be a low cost sports car). But of all the cars I have driven on track, the Caterham is by far the most fun!

                      I have also had both (a C5). The Caterham is more fun on the street too, once you accept a few limitations that are a necessary part of the it's character.
