10 Awesome Supercars You Might Not Know About

7. Caparo T1

The Caparo T1 is not only modeled after an F1 car, it truly looks like one too. Though, one that is only slightly massaged for road use by some of the guys behind the development of the McLaren F1. The British-built T1 uses a 3.5 liter V8 that produces 575 hp with a screaming, 10,500 rpm redline. With a dry weight of 1,000 pounds and with so much power on tap, the Caparo can reach 60 in sub-2.5 second times and reach a top end of 205 mph. The car is known for slightly scary handling, but what else can you expect from an F1 car with blinkers? Only 25 are built each year, costing 235,000 British pounds. Yeah, convert it, it's still a lot.
