Looking at the picture, the car looks so compact. 500 bhp in that small a car must be CRAZY.

This project was intially called Freestream T1 and was the brainchild of the two Ex-McLaren designers. Later it was bought out by Lord Swaraj Paul's Caparo group, hence the name Caparo T1. So now it is a project of Lord Paul's company.
