Whilst externally sharing a common look, Westfield and Caterham cars are somewhat different in construction. Westfield prefers to employ the same glass fibre body method that Lotus has traditionally used for their other models such as the Elise, Esprit, and Elan, rather than the aluminium used by Caterham. Westfield has also pioneered technical innovations such as Independent Rear Suspension and a wider chassis, which other manufacturers have since adopted.  In the first series of BBC's Top Gear, a Westfield XTR2 driven by the Stig set a faster lap time than the reigning record holder of that series, the Pagani Zonda.

A fantastic example of the lightweight sports car, which delivers a truly visceral driving experience thanks to a high-revving motorbike engine. This 2007 Westfield Megablade is powered by the 990cc Honda CBR900 RR Fireblade inline-four, which drives the rear wheels through a manual transmission.

Presented in bright yellow paintwork this one owner from new example has black racing seats with yellow piping and Willans harnesses. A new Pipercross filter, track rod ends and ball joints have been fitted and the car is offered with two sets of keys. Offered with the car is a history file with previous receipts and a new MoT certificate. This Westfield Megablade offered with a new MoT certificate would make an excellent weekend or track-day toy for a keen driver looking for an immersive experience on the road or circuit.
