We have featured this street legal car in conceptual stage about a year ago. Finally, it’s here and it can be ideally termed as an heir to F1! It is the world’s first production road car that will exceed 1,000bhp-per-tonne and promises an astonishing 0-60mph in less than 2.5 seconds. Even when stationary the Caparo T1 exerts supremacy; and with every cubic millimeter shaped solely by its functionality its performance should prove as dramatic as it looks. The T1’s 500 kg weight and 550 bhp give it a power-to-weight ratio of 1100 bhp/tonne – better than any current supersport motorcycle and approaching that of a genuine F1 car.
In releasing full details of the car’s specification, the company has revealed that while customer cars are being readied for the start of production, preparations are also well in hand for the T1’s first public appearance as a running car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 22-24. You got it right dear, it’s the official launch date too.
