I have come to the point where I need to explore selling my beloved Caterham to fund a new business venture (Whiskey Distillery). At this point I'm not desperate to part with it, but I promised the wife I would not dip into the retirement/savings for startup funds.

So, here is what I have.

2009 Caterham SV (Built by Caterham USA in late 2010)
About 5,000 miles, perhaps 2,000 track miles.

Engine:
- Cosworth/Duratec 2.3L (263 HP at the wheels)
- 13:1 Compression (yes race gas)
- SBD Hot Cams
- SBD Light Weight Flywheel
- SBD Race Clutch
- MBE 9A4 Open ECU
- Carbon Fiber Cam Cover
- Race Radiator
- 8,500 Red Line (forged rods/pistons and billet crankshaft)

Gearbox
- Sedev Sequential Transmission
- Geartronics Paddle Shift Kit

Safety
- ATL Fuel Cell
- Schroth Rally Belts - HANS 2" Shoulder Straps
- Tillett Carbon Fiber Seats
- Full Roll Cage
- Lowered Floors

Suspension
- Nitron 3-Way Dampers with Helper Springs

Wheels (three full sets)
- BBS w/ Michelin Used Slicks (three sets), Black Anodized Barrels
- Rial w/ Avon CR500s, Painted Black and Orange
- Rial w/ Michelin Used Rain Slicks (90% new)

Electronics
- AIM Smartycam GP
- AIM Solo DL
- Stack Analog Gauges (Speedo, Tach, Oil Pressure, Water Temp, Oil Temp, Fuel
- Transponder
- Xenon Headlights
- Varley Red Top Lightweight Battery

Carbon Goodies
- 5" Headlamps
- Air Scoop
- Rear Wing Guards
- CF Nose with Spoiler
- Aero Screen
- Aero Wings
- Front and Rear Wings

Spares
- Orange Fiberglass Rear Wings
- Orange Fiberglass Nose
- CF Front Wings and extra Wingstays
- Brake Rotors, Calipers and Pads
- Front Uprights/hubs
- Windscreen (Rock Chip)
- Horn

What's not there to save weight
- Horn
- Windshield Wipers
- Ignition Key Switch

If you are looking for a track Caterham this is just the ticket. Porsche GT-3s will hate you, even on the straights.

There are always a few bugs to work out, but the car is ready for the track. The car has been meticulously maintained with Redline fluids changed 5-6 times per year.


I am asking 70K but willing to talk to anyone. As you may have guessed, I have about 110K into the car, maybe more, but please don't tell my wife...

Willing to make a good deal to a buyer on a 16" Featherlite trailer chock full of RB Components cabinets, a winch, solar panels and more...

I'm from Montana and wonder why you have Montana plate but live in Jersey? I'm just curious.

Wonderful car you have!

I know of a few exotic cars in the Carolinas running Montana plates. From what I've heard it's because there is now property tax, or at least it's much lower than elsewhere. So for a person with multiple cars it saves a bit of money...

In my case, getting a Cosworth Duratec motor through NJ DMV was not manageable. Montana welcomed me with open arms. The car is registered as a 1957 Lotus with vintage plates to match.

I should mention the car weighs under 1,200# and goes 0-60 in 2.8 seconds.

OK, to see if I can get some more interest, at the asking price I'll include the trailer ($15,000 replacement cost). It's the perfect size for a Caterham and since it is aluminum, easy to tow.

2010 Featherlite 1610
16' long, 7' High
Warn Winch (easy to get the car in with this)
2 Marine Batteries
2 Solar Pannels
RB Components Cabinets and Tire Rack
Aluminum Floor
Extended Ramp
Security Lock On Side Door
Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller
