The total weight of Caterham R 500 is 506 kgs. The use of carbon fiber goodies has helped in lowering the weight of the car. The body panels have been made with thinner gauge aluminum. Carbon fiber has been used in making front and rear wings, the nose cone and dash. These materials have helped in reducing the weight of the car and therefore the car has high power to weight ratio. The carbon winglets (at the front) along with the cats tongue(at nose cone's top ) help in reducing lift at high speeds. The carbon winglets increase the down force and the cat's tongue grill helps in giving the car better aerodynamics and cooling.

The car features the special developed-for-race Avon CR 500 tires which give better dry and wet performance and have been designed specially for the Caterham car. Performance of the car also gets improved with the suspension set-up that is equipped with fully adjustable dampers and weight saving aero wishbones.
