Oh Margaret. A couple of former-McLaren F1 engineers are working up a street-legal rod based on the 2006 Formula One car specs. That means a 2.4-liter V8 pushing 480 bhp, carbon-fiber construction, full aerodynamic workup and a weight of only 1025 pounds (that's a power-to-weight ratio of 1,000hp per ton). Founders Ben Scott-Geddes and Graham Halstead expect to launch the car, dubbed Freestream T1 later this year at the equivalent of around $262,000. They only plan to build 25 per year, so European viscounts and bank presidents' spoilt offspring had better get on the horn stat.
