The above features together with the fully adjustable traction control of the Caparo T1 Race Extreme combine to provide the absolute track experience.
Caparo T1 Climate option launched
Caparo T1, the ultimate supercar designed and manufactured Caparo Vehicle Technologies, is now available with a full climate pack. The option is being introduced as a result of customer demand and can be installed on all new orders as well as retrofitted on the existing Caparo T1 cars.
Following a highly successful launch in the UAE and increased customer demand, Caparo Vehicle Technologies have introduced a new optional extra for the Caparo T1. All current car specifications can now be built with a full climate pack which includes a plexiglass canopy and air conditioning. The canopy, made from a toughened acrylic used in armoured windshields and helicopters, slides forward over the nose of the vehicle, and this option costs £21,760. In addition to the canopy configuration, an air conditioning unit can also be fitted with a cost of £3,750. Both these extras, part of the Caparo T1 Climate, can also be retrofitted to existing cars.
