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
, seems to have provided the necessary resources to complete the project.
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.
