We're a little perplexed by the Race Extreme because we've always seen the Caparo T1 advertised as an extreme race car for the street. But this is the extreme track version of the extreme track car for the street? Either way, it's hard to argue with the stats: top speed of 208 MPH, 0-to-100 MPH in 5.8 seconds, G loads in cornering in better than 3.5 gs.
It gets extreme thanks to an upgraded Caparo V8, fully tune-able ECU, fully adjustable suspension and other tweaks. There's no price for the Race Extreme, but if you can afford to die in a fiery car crash you probably don't care.
