Caparo T1S 

  • 2009
  • 575 HP
  • 200 mph
Overall, the 190 000 GBP price tag underlines the company's ability to design and build an exclusive car at a relatively low price despite its ultra high performance.
In terms of sheer vehicle performance, their vision for the T1 is an ultra-lightweight car capable of reaching 100mph in five seconds, with a top speed exceeding 200mph depending on the adjustable aerodynamic set-up which will offer enough downforce to corner at more than 3gs, the same as a Le Mans prototype!
