IMHO, the safest supercar will be one without the starter assembly. So all it can do is sit in the garage n look good.

Can we have some pictures and reviews (or links to them) of this Craparo T1? Never heard of this thing before....

And what's with comparision and link to Mclaren F1? That's like Jaylalitha comparing herself to Laetitia Casta. Mclaren F1 was developed by Murray and his team of engineers at Mclaren. Have these Craparo guys bought out Mclaren?!

Haha, Caparo T1 is actually the worlds most unsafest car. Those who go to Auto Expo, stay far away from the T1 or wear fire proof attire and carry a fire extenguisher along.
