Caparo reveals new T1 Race Extreme


Inspired in its design and performance by Formula One, the Caparo T1 has a distinctive pedigree which has once again been enhanced by the introduction of the new Race Extreme specification. The high end Race Extreme version of the car is now available with an evolved all aluminium, normally aspirated, fuel injected Caparo V8 engine which has been upgraded to deliver 620 bhp at 10,500 rpm. Some of the phenomenal key performance characteristics of the Caparo T1 Race Extreme are as follows:

0-62 mph 2.8 sec

0-100 mph 5.8 sec

Top speed 208 mph

G loads braking > 4 g

G loads cornering > 3.5 g

Dry weight 550 kgs

The specification also includes: fully adjustable suspension and aerodynamic packs, ultra light 6 pot front and 4 pot rear monoblock billet machined aluminium callipers complete with titanium pistons, and 355mm x 35mm ceramic discs and pads set up. In addition, the car’s upgraded electronic package contains a fully tuneable ECU which ensures maximum performance from the engine and the six speed sequential gear box. The above features together with the fully adjustable traction control of the Caparo T1 Race Extreme combine to provide the absolute track experience.

Caparo T1 Climate option launched

Caparo T1, the ultimate supercar designed and manufactured Caparo Vehicle Technologies, is now available with a full climate pack. The option is being introduced as a result of customer demand and can be installed on all new orders as well as retrofitted on the existing Caparo T1 cars.

Following a highly successful launch in the UAE and increased customer demand, Caparo Vehicle Technologies have introduced a new optional extra for the Caparo T1. All current car specifications can now be built with a full climate pack which includes a plexiglass canopy and air conditioning. The canopy, made from a toughened acrylic used in armoured windshields and helicopters, slides forward over the nose of the vehicle, and this option costs £21,760. In addition to the canopy configuration, an air conditioning unit can also be fitted with a cost of £3,750. Both these extras, part of the Caparo T1 Climate, can also be retrofitted to existing cars.
