  1. is it even legal to drive that Caparo on the road? It looks like a formula 1 car.

  2. Amazing, i don't like any of that...

  3. they both look crazy, i'd have the first.

  4. the caterham has that oldskool vibe

  5. whow great cars :D
    definatly this one
    Caterham CSR260

  6. Iwould pick Caterham because it has two seats , does the Caparo have just one ? Or is it me ?

  7. Neither. Unless I won one and then I could sell it to buy a car I like.

  8. I think I prefer the Caparo T1 myself.

  9. Hard one today as im not too keen on either. I would pick the Caparo T1 because it would probably keep you drier in the rain lol.

  10. love all the tabled info on this post!

    gotta be the CSR260, i love the oldschool kit car look!

  11. the second b/c it looks nicer

  12. The Caterham, haha. Looks classy xD

  13. They both look like fun to drive.

  14. Well my dad used to have a Caterham Super 7, and MAN that thing was fast, but honestly the Caparo is just too crazy to refuse!

  15. I would feel like I was in a hot wheels car either way, lol. Can either do the loop thing like on the old tracks? XD

  16. the first car looks WICKED!

  17. Caterham CSR260 it looks cooler, and its something i would use to go to the market or something.

  18. Those are crazy, but i'd take the first one

  19. Both are cool in their own way, the Caterham has a charm to it but I'd probably go with the Caparo.

  20. I'm going for the Caparo T1! Looks like the classic race car!

  21. to be honest. Both cars look pretty faggy. But if i had to the second one. Id get all the bitches. ALL of them.

  22. Caterham! I like the look of that, very retro.

  23. That Caparo T1 looks like a beast!

  24. Damnnn i want that caparo!! ;D

  25. The Catherham, I've seen peoples faces start to collapse driving it.
