Caterham drops GM for solus deal

MG Rover has secured an exclusive deal to supply Caterham with powertrain products for an “ongoing period” of years. The company has been supplying engines on a joint-supply basis with Vauxhall for around 10 years, but this marks a strengthening of MG Rover ties to Caterham - at General Motors' expense.

It includes an agreement for Caterham to use the MG X Power racing brand on its race cars. Caterham will take MG's 1.4-litre K-series and the 1.8-litre (135PS and 160PS) engines - volumes are likely to total several hundred units a year. “This move underlines the reliability and quality of our engines,” said Greg Allport, MG Rover brand and motorsport communications manager. “We will be working on a number of other initiatives with Caterham, which will include the development of future engines.”
