Caterham Superlight R500
A few snaps of the Caterham Superlight R500 model

The infamous Superlight R500 with it rather recognisable number plate (R500CC) set a lap record on the cold Top Gear track of 1.17.9.

The original episode featuring the Superlight R500 was aired on the 7th December 2008 and the car was then awarded Top Gear car of the year on the 14th December 2008.
