Caparo T1 Race Extreme – for rich nutters

Caparo T1 Race Extreme – for rich nutters

Caparo T1 Extreme f

The motoring world is in a consensus that the Caparo T1 is a fairly radical and reckless vehicle. But the team at Caparo thought the T1 just wasn’t extreme enough and have released a new version of the car, aimed towards the “high end of the track day market” – the Caparo T1 Race Extreme.

The Caparo T1 Race Extreme is powered by an aluminum, normally aspirated, fuel injected V8 engine that outputs 620 bhp at 10,500 rpm in a body that has a dry weight of just 550 kg. The Caparo T1 Race Extreme rockets from 0 to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds and to 160 kphin 5.8 seconds and it won’t stop till it reaches 335kph. Total madness.

The Extreme edition also comes with a full list of racing upgrades: a fully adjustable suspension and aerodynamic package, ultra light brake callipers with titanium pistons, ceramic discs and pads and a fully tunable ECU.

Pricing has not been announced, but its safe to say you will have to sell your house… and rob a bank.
