MOST POWERFUL CATERHAM YET: Caterham’s supercharged Seven 620 R will take on Aston Martin, Maserati and Lamborghini at the 2014 Cholmondeley Pageant of Power in England. Image: Caterham

LONDON, England - Caterham hopes to wow spectators at the annual Cholmondeley Pageant of Power with its supercharged Seven 620 R – the most powerful two-seater yet produced by the small British automaker.

Driving the 231kW two-seater will be Caterham’s Scott Mansell, who will challenge some of the biggest names in the performance-car world, among them Ariel, Aston Martin, Maserati and Lamborghini.

The event attracts crowds in excess of 60 000 who will see more than 140 of the world’s most impressive cars and bikes in action. The event will also have a Battle of Britain memorial flight, marine stunts and a new Rally Village.

PAGEANT OF POWER

Caterham is entering its flagship Seven which replaces the SP/300.R sports prototype which was victorious in 2012 after setting a lap record of 61.89sec, topping that set by a Lamborghini in 2010.  

In 2013 the Radical SR8 triumphed, beating the Caterham SP/300.R by 1.24sec and setting a lap record of 55.29sec. Now Mansell plans to place Caterham firmly back on top with the Seven 620 R.

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power will be held in the grounds of Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire, north-western England, through June 13-15 2014. The Caterham Seven 620 R will be running in the super cars and track day cars classes throughout the event.
