That's certainly different. :rofl: I'd like to take a closer look at the car. In one of the photos, the upper A-arm looks to be bent rearward. :ack:

A search of the internet turns up the following verbiage when it was for sale in Moorpark, California, last year (off a .FR based classified site no less):

This is not a car for every one. This is a very stiff drivers car. Its pretty much like driving a motorcycle, you need to be aware of your surroundings kind of thing.

I don't know how everyone else feels, but I really like the look with the extra body panels in the car posted above. I know, I know it's extra weight and not needed, but there must be some benefit to the bodywork as far as aerodynamics besides the interestingly good looks.

Gauges, rear diffuser, exhaust, and turn signals that are hard to see from any direction other than straight on? Oh and the fuel cap is odd. Is that a just a twist off/on or is it lockable?

I thought I posted this previously but was obviously having a senior moment...

 

2012 Caterham R300 with 5 miles on the clock at Chariots of Palm Beach at $50k (rounded up)

http://www.chariotsofpb.com/Inventory/InventoryDetails/tabid/2245/company/CHARIOTS/vin/SDKLDK3NS11070411/Default.aspx

 

 

While this is a Bentley and Morgan dealer and a very strange place to see a Caterham, I acquired my 2004 yellow Caterham SV roadsport through them in 2008. They are excellent to deal with, very reasonable in negotiations and very efficient. I would happily deal with them again. They are right next to Palm Beach FL airport so easy in and out. I have no affiliation or background on this particular Caterham though.

its actually fairly common to have kits sitting around unbuilt. I know where there is a 2006 kit still in its crate. 2012 kit maybe sold late 2013 and only finished building in 2014 - not unreasonable.
