    Heres a vid of a caterham super seven tearing it up at a track, as well as ripping an F40 a new one.

    Enjoy.

    i believe it was a ford 2.0 ztec
    which can be anywheres from 145-170 hp.

    This one is the seven superlight R.

    Weighs in just under 1400lbs.

    Isn't there a british built roadster similar to the Carterham that had twin engines, front & rear? Saw it on Discovery or Spped I think.

    Yup, call the tiger. I believe it has two hyabusa engines strap in, something like 2.8 0-60.

    AHA!

    The Tiger Z100WR as seen on TV (5th Gear with Tiff Needell breaking the world 0 -60mph record in a staggering 2.9 seconds in full road-legal trim.

    The Tiger Z100 rear wheel drive Mk1 (with 510 bhp per tonne) as seen on TV Top Gear with Vicky Butler Henderson driving, this carburetor version's 0 to 60mph time is a staggering 3.1 seconds in full road-legal trim.

    Tiger is confident that the 0-100mph and 0-100-0 times on the new Mk II Z100 will be staggering, even though never tested. so far we have not been invited to any of the tests organised by the magazines, maybe they know the outcome of having the Z100 in attendance!

    The new MKII Tiger Z100 is fitted with twin Suzuki GSXR-1000 engines, which now give the Z100 600bhp per tonne and a lower finished weight that its predecessor, so it is expected to be quite a bit quicker.

    The Tiger Z100 uses a modified R6 chassis; extra strength was needed in the chassis to take the phenomenal loadings due to the power and traction of the Z100.

    Finish of the chassis and suspension is in powder coat, body work is as the R6 specification with main body in two pack paint spray finish to you colour choice, all wings are in carbon finish showing black weave, central tunnel and dash also are carbon finish.

    The Suzuki GSXR-1000 bike gearboxes are used in the Tiger Z100, both driving into a bespoke transfer box. Sequential gear change is obtained through a split alloy gear lever mounted central tunnel; reverse is incorporated into the transfer box with a small alloy lever on right hand side of carbon tunnel.

    The Tiger Z100 Mk II is only available as a factory built car and is priced at £33,000 excluding VAT, SVA and registration fees.
