German tuner and motorsport brand Irmscher revealed the latest version of their Caterham 7 replica in form of the Roadster Turbo Sport 45. AS the name suggests, this car celebrates the Company’s 45th anniversary, and will be produced in limited numbers.
The Turbo Sport 45 has a classic sports car recipe with a tubular steel chassis as the base, and a plastic and aluminum body connected to it by a track-tuned sport suspension system. Retro design alloys and high performance brakes complete the work on the chassis.
With an overall weight of around 730 kg, the 45 didn’t need a big engine to be seriously quick. So it gets a 2.0 liter four-pot developing 265 horsepower and 400Nm of torque. Should be great fun to drive.
Compared to the previous version, the interior of the Turbo 45 is a tad more luxurious with premium leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, and a waterproof soft top.
