CAPARO @ Ascari
Maby someone of you have heard of this vehicle,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have seen it ,,,,, and got some laps in it,, there are no words to tell,, this is such a engineering masterpiece. 575 hp @ 550 kg. the force what this can do is just,, unbeliveble,, the katapult forward power is impressive indeed,, but the stopping power is like you .... and most of us regular guyes against ALI and TYSON together multiplied times 5,, lot of experineced driver got a run and ALL of THEM came out of the cockpit like they got a hillarious injection in their face

Radical SR8 6.55 roadleagal tires
Such a nics guy i asked him about his favorite track...huu what do you mean There are JUST 2 tracks in the world .. Nordschleife and Pikes peak......okey


40) Superleggera (((((250 GTO replica)))))


41)


42) 365 GTB 1971 ((((Daytona))))

44)



Final words
CAPARO T1 is the greatest thing on 4 wheel i have sit in ,,,,,,so far

Klaas Zwaart ((owner of Ascari )) said when he drove it .. yes this is the closest thing to F1 i have tried

(and belive me he has a aaaaaaawesome driving style)
Katapult forward power is unbeliveble.. but the brakes .......hehehehehe,, I asked Michael Vergers
just for curiousity about ,,,is CERAMIC an option ... haha ((he laughs)),
MV: it is still to fast ok.. what about Radical SR8 vs T1
well.... hard to say SR8 has no chance in speed or brakes
T1 has no chance in a twisty narrow track
MV:::::. if SR8 were on slicks i guess 6.15-6.20 is no problem @ Nürburgring-Nordschleife

Nota Bene the record Stephan Bellof set in 1982 is 6.11 in a P-956

Thank you and best regards

599...WOW!

Amazingly beautiful car!!! Funny, I DVR'd a show this weekend about the Ferrari factory. They were making the 599s...what a beautiful machine, inside out.

My next goal is to get this car...it might be a little ways down the road but I am looking forward to it.

Nice pics! Thanks for sharing....

-Mike

Yeah, I've spoken to their US distributor quite a few times. It's an amazing vehicle for those who live in a country where you can drive it to the track.

ok, where to begin...oh yeah

1. Novitec twin supercharged 430....ah..yes please!
2. Actually driving a Caparo T1....awesome!
3. Actually driving a Caparo T1....on Ascari's track....really awesome!!
4. Novitec Rossi tuning for Ferrari 599 is very, very nice, but I would've also looked at the Hamann body tuning program for 599, it's my personal favorite.

There aren't too many world class tuners here in the states. I think I'll just live vicariously through you.

Great post!
