In-game descriptionEdit

"An out-of-the-ordinary Super 7 powered by a Honda motorcycle engine."


Caterham is a British automobile manufacturer who produces the Super 7, a unique car which is an evolved version of the Lotus 7. Caterham already has 25 years of history producing their Super 7, and the current model is greatly evolved from the early models.

The Caterham Super 7 comes in a large variety of engines as did the original Lotus 7. However the most unique out of these is probably the model that has been named the Fireblade.

If you are a motorcycle fan, it may bring to mind a Honda Superbike of the same name - and you are not mistaken. This Fireblade is powered by that very motorcycle engine.

The power plant of the Honda Fireblade from the late 1990's was a 900cc inline 4 cylinder, with a maximum output of 138 HP. Though its power may not be very impressive, you must remember this is a motorcycle engine, which means that it is extremely light. The engine itself only weighs 66.5 kg.

As a result, the Caterham Fireblade powered by this engine only weighs a total of 369 kg. If you do the math, this is equal to 374 HP per ton, powerful enough to classify it as a monster machine. Not only this, the extremely light engine is mounted as close to the bulkhead as possible, for a front midship layout. The engine and layout gives the car extreme performance and incredible handling to go with it.

This is a vehicle that reminds drivers of the greatest strength of a sports car - light weight.
