Caterham 620S: road test

AOL Cars gets behind the wheel of the insane Caterham 620S to see if this bargain British bruiser has what it takes to mingle with the big boys.

What is it?

Normally, going fast entails significant financial outlay. The Bugatti Veyron, famously one of the fastest cars ever built, cost the best part of £2 million - and even secondhand values are similarly strong.

If you're less wealthy than the average oligarch, though, you could go the Caterham way. The 620S we have here will hit 60mph in under 3.5 seconds, but costs from just £44,995. In short, there are few ways to go this quick for as little cash.
