See Britain's brand new, 575bhp Bugatti-basher in action on the track
8 June 2007

Car enthusiasts everywhere are still reeling after the launch of the astonishing Caparo T1, and some of the equally shocking claims its maker has made of it. However, while other motoring websites are falsely claiming to have already driven the T1, Autocar.co.uk is the first to bring you video of the 575bhp featherweight in action.With more than 1000bhp per tonne, 0-100mph acceleration potential of under five seconds, and levels of downforce never before seen on a road legal car, the T1 has all the makings of a phenomenal track car. It certainly looks the part, tearing around corners and exploding up straights; watch it by clicking here.Those who want to know more about the T1 won't have to wait long for Autocar's first drive verdict on the car. As yet, no-one outside of Caparo's employ has driven it; we'll be getting behind the wheel of the T1 in early July, and bringing you out exclusive first drive soon afterwards.Meanwhile click here to read our full story on Britain's new track car phenomenon
