The Freestream T1 supercar project created by two former McLaren engineers has been bought out by automotive consultancy Caparo . Founders Ben Scott-Geddes and Graham Halstead, who worked on the famous McLaren F1 supercar and the Mercedes-Benz SLR, will stay with the project and if all goes well the quarter-million-dollar racer Caparo T1 might hit the roads by December. This two-seater is powered by a 2006-regulations style 2.4-litre V8 engine.
The team had planned to build just 25 cars per year but 20 of it have already been pre-sold, priced at around $250,000. Rumor has it that Stefan Eriksson is first on the waiting list.
