Caterham Seven Fireblade '02

Caterham Seven Fireblade '02This car is very special compared to the other cars. It is more of a go kart with lots of power than a regular car, it is also the only standard car that has full cockpit view like a premium, can be won as a prize for the hardest GT5 race the Formula GT championship, but is also the last Gran Turismo 5 tune I will ever make forever (don't worry I'll see you in GT6). Another thing that makes this particular car/tune special is it is meant to be driven with NO aids at all. That even means no abs and yes becomes a much greater challenge. I have tuned it as best I could and have had a great time driving it around all the wonderful tracks GT5 has to offer. Although on paper it's hp is low the the low weight makes it very competitive. I maxed it out at 160mph with no draft which is pretty damn fast with such low power. It's not as difficult as you may think to drive, but the key is remember just how light it is. A small bump can send you flying.

All parts except chassis reinforcement. I'm using racing soft tires. Do an engine and chassis restore if needed. Also you can use stage 3 turbo or supercharger. I tried both and supercharger is the smallest amount faster top speed, but my laps were faster with the turbo.
