Caterham has confirmed this week that the Seven 485 will replace the Superlight SV R300 in its local line-up.

While the Seven 485 is more expensive than the model it replaces, it will become the fastest Caterham model ever offered in the British carmaker’s Australian showroom.

The new local range-topper can achieve the zero to 100km/h sprint in 3.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 240km/h.

Power comes from a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, making 177kW and 206Nm, which drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual.

Thanks to its feather-weight 675kg, the Seven 485 boasts a combined fuel figure of 7.7 l/100km.

Adjustable suspension is standard, along with carbon-fibre body panels, four-point racing harnesses, roll-bar, a dry sump system and 254mm racing brakes housed within 15-inch wheels.

Caterham’s newcomer to Australia is joined in the local line-up by the mid-range Roadsport SV 145 and CSR 175 – priced at $84,990 and $89,990 plus on-roads respectively – along with the entry-level Roadsport SV 120, starting at $69,990.

No word yet from Caterham Australia on whether the bare-bones, 660cc Seven 160 will join the local range, which carries a price of just £17,995 (AU$32,963) in the UK, plus on-roads.

The 2014 Caterham Seven 485 is priced in Australia at $108,990 plus on-roads.
