The British designed and built Freestream T1 was the product of several Mclaren Cars Ltd. engineers, managers and technicians. The same people who helped build the Mclaren F1 road car, and more recently the Mercedes Mclaren SLR.

The Freestream T1 later became the Caparo T1
The Freestream T1 is intended as the ultimate track car, which can also be driven legaly on public roads. The extreme bodywork is constructed from carbon fiber and features adjustable aerodynamics and downforce. The resulting 465 kg weight, coupled with a 500 bhp engine, gives a massive 1000+hp per tonne
figure. All this means that the two occupants may achive up to 3g during hard cornering and braking.

Freestream Cars hope to have the T1 production ready late in 2006, with a 25 cars per year goal for the entire plant.

Freestream T1 update:
In April 2006 the Freestream T1 was renamed the Caparo T1. All production specification figures remained identical.
