power to weight ratrio is one ,other thinks is AERODYNAMIC this car have small frontal area but enormous Cx like much bigger car close to for egzample jeep grand cherokee 2006 thats why it is slow to other car with close hp/weight ratio ,but top speed is defenitwely restricted even with that bad aerodynamic this car with 500 hp should go to around 270 km/h where typical sports car with this power go around 300 km/h,for egzample i measured acceleration 175 hp caterham form 160-180 km/h in 4 second the same power to weight ratipo car like bmw m5 do this 2 Times quicker .

I agree. Looks very spectacular, but it is not.

To be honest, I don't think that's a rather impressive laptime for this car... Slower than 458, having almost THOUSAND bhp/tonne? Really?...

And 0-100 mph in 8.2 sec? So that's slower than BMW M6?... But 0-100 kph in 3 seconds bare... What a wheelspin does it create at the speed after 100 kph?...

Poor.

A V8 with 500 PS in a 520 kg light car like Caterham? Incredible!

But I do not know why the topspeed is restricted at 241 kph? Why not 250 kph or no restriction?

Poor traction and braking, no match for an SR8.

This car is amazing. V 8 super charged, but still slower than the R500?!?

These are go-car-ts. Power to weight ratio is off the roof. Double checked that top end speed, it would be 241 kmh/s, cars are limited to 250 kms where I live.

And there are many places to do that as well.

You can put all you negative things together, but a petrol head would know that this is no toy nor is it a car you over look.

And how much does the gumpert Apollo Sport Cost?

no way. its a waste of money, thats why there only going to make 7, not because its great, but because CaterHAM new that NOBODY would buy this waste of money, im not saying its a bad car but its TOO damned expensive, the CSR260 is already plenty fast and track capable, since they have that i dont see any point in making this, if ya want a fast car for $198,000 and 500 bhp get a Fisker Latigo CS now THATS th PERFECT car..

no it does NOT... in stock trim it does 150mph... if modded with removed limiter it isn´t stock anymore... most German high power cars are restricted to 155mph no matter how much faster they could go without limiter.. the topspeed is 155mph ..and the Caterham topspeed is 150mph
