Caterham Superlight R500

Drivers who are passionate about everything to do with fast may be impressed with the latest model to be confirmed for an upcoming event.

Organisers of the MPH Prestige and Performance Motor Show have revealed visitors will get the opportunity to check out the Caterham Superlight R500.

With 520 bhp-per-tonne, the six-speed 2-litre model made it round the show’s test track with the Stig at the wheel in one minute 17.9 seconds.


The iconic Caterham Superlight R500 will make its debut in the Top Gear Live show when the Top Gear Live World Tour gets underway next month at the MPH Prestige and Performance Motor Show in Earls Court , London .

The 2008 Top Gear Car of the Year will take centre stage in homage to Ken Block's masterful Gymkhana film from the last series of the ever popular BBC programme - a sequence which promises a maelstrom of tyre-smoking mayhem for the live audience.  

After its star turn at London 's Earls Court on November 5-8 and Birmingham 's NEC on 12-15 November, the British sportscar will take in Dublin , Sydney and Auckland as part of the Top Gear Live World Tour.

With The Stig behind the wheel, the 2-litre, six-speed R500 – which boasts a mind-numbing 520bhp-per-tonne - embarrassed the performance of many big ticket supercars with a time of 1m 17.9s around the Top Gear test track last autumn.

Tickets for the MPH Prestige and Performance Motor Show and the chance to watch Jeremy, Richard and James live on stage can be purchased via or through the ticket hotline 0871 230 5588.  Tickets cost between £42 and £99 each.
