Caparo T1 supercar set for Monaco debut

April 20th will finally see the unveiling of the incredible Caparo T1 supercar at the Top Marques auto show in Monaco. When we posted the original design renderings of the car (then called the Freestream T1) back in February, many of our readers were skeptical that the car would ever see the light of day, but a refinancing of the company, now called Caparo Vehicle Technologies, seems to have provided the necessary resources to complete the project.

The Caparo T1 is an ultra-lightweight supercar billed as providing performance comparable to a Le Mans prototype, including a 0-60 mph time of only 2.5 seconds and 3g cornering ability.

The T1's ex-McLaren designers, Ben Scott-Geddes and Graham Halstead, will join Caparo CEO Angad Paul for the unveiling.
