The New Caparo’s T1 Race ExtremeApril 3rd, 2009 - Posted in Automotive Design
Caparo’s T1 model reverts back to its roots by taking its racecar designed machine for the streets back to where it really belongs – the track. The new T1 Race Extreme features a 620bhp 3.5-litre V8, feeding it a top speed of 208mph. It’s time for acceleration goes from zero to 60mph in 2.8 seconds and 0-100mph in 5.8 seconds. Other upgrades include 355m carbon-ceramic brakes, with six-piston callipers at the front and four-piston callipers at the rear. There’s also a way to adjust the aerodynamics and suspension of the ride to make it more compatible in different racing environments and circuits. Tweaks and modification to the engine’s ECU is also a feature in order to adjust throttle response and gear change speeds.
