Deposit is in!

Today is the day! I sent the check, receipt confirmed, and I’ve now got a deposit on a build slot in December 2013 with delivery sometime in early 2014. Final build is:

  • Ford 2.0L Duratec (~175 HP)
  • Limited slip differential
  • Standard S3 chassis
  • Ventilated front discs & quad piston calipers
  • 15” wheels / Avon CR500 tyres 7”f + 7”r including superlight suspension
  • Weather equipment & carbon interchangeable aeroscreen
  • Black Pack
  • Black aero filler cap
  • Spare wheel & carrier
  • Push button start
  • 12 volt power socket
  • Trackday rollover bar
  • Race harnesses

And then there’s the paint. Caterham F1 green with a yellow noseband and bonnet stripe. Looks kinda like this …

All-in-all I know I overspent. But I figure if you’re going to the trouble of actually building a car then by god I’m going to build the one I want!
