    updated caparo t1

    Did they scrap the 2.4 liter engine and move up to a 700 bhp 3.5? http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/frame...hp&carnum=2774

    Yes they did.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    I'm betting that drivabilty, reliabilty and cost also played a part.

    RST who were making the 2.4 litre V8 appear to have fallen off the face of the planet.

    This may have something to do with the need for a change.
