The 620R will be motivated by a supercharged 2.0-liter Ford Duratec engine beefed up to deliver 311 bhp at 7,700 rpm and 219 lb-ft of torque at 7,350 rpm, Autocar reveals. While its total weight has yet to be confirmed, the vehicle should have a power-to-weight ratio of 620 bhp per ton, which will enable it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.79 seconds.

The new 620R will feature a number of interior upgrades, such as carbon fiber interior panels and race seats, and will be priced at £49,995, £7500 more than the R500. The radical sportscar will be launched at Goodwood (11-14 July), where it will be showcased by Caterham Formula One driver Charles Pic.

“The 620R is the most hardcore production Seven ever built for the road. We know there is demand for cars that re-write the rules of performance and, if you’re brave enough to take it on, the 620R will be an enormously rewarding, fun car to pilot,” said Graham Macdonald, Caterham Cars CEO.
