Not another supercar?

Afraid so, though that’s hardly a bad thing. And unlike the numerous other sketches and concept cars that seem to appear by the day, deliveries of the Caparo T1 will start in May. It will also be running up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June. However, since the car was first unveiled last year it has undergone a few changes. Read on to find out what the team in Basingstoke has done to create the British Bugatti...

Gone is the supercharged 2.4-litre V8, and in comes a bespoke, all-aluminium, naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V8. Of course, this means more power. Rather than a measly 480bhp, especially in the days of 600bhp S-classes, the new engine promises up to 200bhp per litre. That’ll be 700bhp, then. Oh, and it’ll run on sustainable fuels too.
