The French company Caudron developed another air racer in the 1930s. Based on the C.362, three C.460 aircraft were made. They had a supercharged Renault 456 six-cylinder engine. These participated in various air races. Slightly other versions were the C.450 and C.461 and a total of 5 aircraft in this series were made.
