Caparo New T1 Race Extreme

The Caparo T1 isn't lacking for power or on-track prowess, but the British engineering firm is adding a dose of both for the new Race Extreme version of the T1. The 3.5-liter V8's output has been increased from 575 to 620 horsepower (at 10,500 rpm) allowing the 1,213-pound track toy to sprint to 60 in 2.8 seconds, hit 100 in 5.8 seconds and top out at a claimed 208 mph.
