Caterham C400 track/race car 237bhp

Le Mans Sale


Car was purchased in March 2016 and was an ex race car converted from a K Series C400 to a Cosworth Duratec C400 spec.  Has always been a race car and never a road car.  In 2016 I had the gearbox rebuilt and used for track days only.  No racing. 

Then over the winter of 2020/2021 I stripped the vehicle and rebuilt with no expense spared (spent £15k taking my spend total to £37k) to get the ultimate Caterham C400 race car/track car. 

During the build all the nuts and bolts were replaced for new along with:

  • New dedion
  • New ears
  • New high spec rear bearing carriers
  • New wheels bearings all round
  • New drive shafts
  • New wheel studs and nuts,
  • New front hubs stub axels & bearings
  • shocks re-valved and serviced by Bilstein to CSR spec
  • New FIA bespoke bag tank with integral pump
  • New fire extinguisher system
  • New fuel lines
  • New rear diff
  • New prop shaft bearings
  • New clutch actuation system,
  • New rack mounts

The car has done one track day since.
