Caterham Superlight R No.77 ........."V7 SLR"

After 8 years of ownership of my 1995 Caterham Supersport and all the changes that had been made - 1400cc to 1800cc, fitment of throttle bodies with Emerald engine management, dry-sump system and much more, in September 2006 a Superlight R was offered for sale at a price not to be missed ..........

Registered in 1999, it had been built and owned for 6 years by an active member of the owners' club, then sold to a prominent classic car enthusiast. The new owner then had the car completely repainted and fitted with suitable extras such as Carbon-Kevlar Tillett seats and a BTB exhaust silencer, whilst retaining as much originality as possible. After only 13 months the car was then offered for sale again. Right place right time etc!

During its' life SLR No.77 has received much attention and many changes have taken place, some modifications to improve performance, some as a test bed for minor projects. Much of this is documented here:
