Caparo T1 news - Mind the Cap - 2007

They
had us worried there for a minute, but we can rest assured that the Caparo T1
is still as stark raving mad as ever.

The
flyweight Brit super-dupercar now has more power than before and boasts a new
3.5-litre V8 engine.

Gone
is the previous turbocharged 2.4-litre job and in comes the normally aspirated
unit that is enough to produce 200bhp per litre, which means the 500kg T1 is
good for more than 1,000bhp per tonne.

Suck
on that, Bugatti.

The
T1 also sticks it to the Veyron with a price tag of a mere £180,000.

No
exact launch date, but the T1 will be doing demonstration drives up the
hillclimb at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, so get along there to see
what all the fuss is about.
