Caparo Race Extreme news - Caparo gets hotter - 2009

Read more on:

Remember the
Caparo T1, the race-car-for-the-road that set the world alight last
year? Well, there’s an even hotter version about to launch called Race
Extreme.
 
Those mad boffins down at Caparo obviously decided that 575bhp from the
standard T1’s 3.5-litre V8 just wasn’t toasty enough, so have boosted
power up to a scorching 625bhp. That’s good for a 0-60mph time of 2.8
seconds, while the Race Extreme will hit 100mph in 5.8 seconds and top
out at a properly roasting 208mph.
 
The Race Extreme also gets a fully adjustable suspension system, along
with a new tunable ECU, allowing owners to tweak the settings of the
engine and sequential gearbox to their hearts’ content.
 
Even better, if you want to stay cool in your T1 – out of the harmful
burning rays of the sun, of course – Caparo has just the answer: a
plexiglass canopy and air conditioning system, yours for a cool
£25,560. More info at this, er, hotlink.
