Caparo T1 is certainly the scariest supercar in the world. Last year this Formula wannabe appeared in many high profile events and TV shows and broke down in almost all of them! and in some occasions it caught fire in which the worst is when Jason Plato of Fifth Gear was testing it and he got burned on his hand, neck and face. So we are a bit skeptical about this new 2009 model which will debut at Salon Prive on 12th February 2009 at London’s Hurlingham Club.
However with 550+ horsepower, 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and a price tag of more than $350,000 (2008 model) this can be considered as a very exciting way to attempt suicide! Of course for rich people. The new model offers five different settings as they say the base is a cost effective racing setup and at the top of the range you can have Race Extreme version which comes with upgraded electronics package, fully carbon brakes and the latest light weight magnesium wheels.
