The Race Extreme, that is what Caparo named their latest T1 version revealed yesterday. Equipped with an all new aluminium V8 engine that can reach 10,500 rpm and offering a maximum of 620 hp, the ultra light 550 Kgs supercar takes just 2.8 seconds to get from 0 to 62 mph and 5.8 seconds from 0 to 100 mph. Top speed is 208 mph and there is also a whole list of technical features presented in the press kit that made us wonder what will the real tests say about the Caparo T1 Race Extreme version. The company says the new version of their Formula One inspired supercar is ready to offer the ultimate driving experience and from knowing how the Caparo T1 performed we tend to believe them.
