The best part about this is that the Duratec is certified over here Mazda3 , ford focus, so we won't miss out on top models unless the K engines continue to develop.
The interior... saw a piccy of a red/white piping ala corvette is simply hideous, massive looking and takes up space.
front suspension with inboard dampers ok but true independent rear will be awesome.
Caterham are being extremely coy about the weight.

The thing I notice is that the car is very wide, as wide as the current SV model that I have. Look at how oval the radiator inlet is.

The base chassis will be SV for the CSR with mods for the suspension pick ups.
They'll need to pull a lot more power out of the Duratec if they want to pry R400/500's out of the currents owners' hands, I think.
