Back in the UK, where the car was developed, the T1 is fully road legal. However, when asked if it will be street legal in the States, Caparo could only comment that they were unsure at this stage. Instead the company will focus on the track opportunities and possibly a race series.
Looking more like a Formula One car then an actually road-going supercar, the Caparo T1 has a price tag of £165,000 (approx. US$315,000). For this kind of money you get a 2-seater that delivers 1,000bhp-per-tonne and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds and from zero to 100mph and then brake down to rest again in approximately 8.5 seconds thanks to the 480bhp 2.4L V8 engine. The T1 will be displayed by Michelin as part of an agreement with the French tire manufacturer for it to become the exclusive supplier of tires.
