Imagine sitting inside a pinball ball for seven minutes. Similarly, taking a Caparo T1 around the Nurburgring would offer the same level of G-force and sheer open-mouthed hold-on-for-your-life exhileration. EVO has done just that and posted a recording of it up on YouTube.

Caparo T1 Nurburgring

You may not think the Caparo looks that fast from the video, but don't forget the driver would not have been giving it everything; it would've been too dangerous on this public track day to do so.

The amount of focus required to drive this car would be like trying to continuously concentrate on a blowfly buzzing around a living room. Except one lapse in attention and it's not just it that's gone, you're gone as well.

Featuring a 3.5-litre Menard V8 engine, outputting 429kW of power at 10,500rpm, the entire dry weight of the car is just 470kg, meaning it has a power-to-weight ratio two times better than the Bugatti Veyron. Accelerating from 0-100km/h can be done in just 2.5 seconds.

Watch below and notice how quickly the Caparo gathers speed and overtakes various 'fast' cars on the 'Ring.
