British Police Looking To Formula One For Some Extra Speed!

Ryan WoodAnalyst IMay 14, 2008

British police are looking into acquiring the new Caparo T1 (£250,000) as a quick response unit.

The car developed by the guys who bought you Lewis Hamilton's McLaren F1 car, is capable of speeds up to 200 mph and acceleration of 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds and onto 100 mph in under five seconds. That's impressive.

However, the car has been involved in several accidents recently. Jason Plato recently test drove the Caparo T1 ending up engulfed in flames with a badly burnt hand and face.

More recently, Jeremy Clarkson test drove it for Top Gear, when it encountered fuel injection problems and a loose floor plate. When the car was finally safe to drive, it smashed the powerlap board recording a 1.10.6, taking the Number one spot off the koenigsegg CCX.

Criminals look out, you're going to get a nasty shock when you look in your mirrors!
