Another two amazing cars (as always), slightly different dates with Cizeta Moroder V16T dating slightly earlier than the LeBlanc Caroline GTR. However, despite that I would have to choose the Cizeta, I personally prefer the more old fashioned look on most cars and this car definitely has that. It's old, rustic looking sleek design makes it a winner for me. I would give anything to own a car like that :P (it's pretty powerful too!) But...
Which one would you choose?
Right lets get started:
Cizeta Moroder V16T
Average insurance for middle-age man, safe neighbourhood: $1150 month
Conceived by ex Lamborghini test driver Claudio Zampoli and backed by musician Georgio Moroder, the V16T was launched as a direct competitor to the then new Diablo. The mighty 560bhp engine was unique in that it featured no less than 16 cylinders with 64 valves, enough to sprint to 60mph in 4 seconds and onto a 200mph plus top speed.
Cizeta based themselves in supercar country in Modena, Italy, and even had the skilled hand of Gandini to style the Diabloesque bodywork. However, even this was not enough. The project folded in the mid 90's with only a handful of the £400,000 models produced.
LeBlanc Caroline GTR
Average insurance for middle-age man, safe neighbourhood: $900/month
Following in the steps of Monteverdi and Sbarro, another small volume Swiss manufacturer, LeBlanc, offers us racecar performance to the road in the form of the stunning Caroline GTR.
It may have a mere 2 litre powerplant but with the addition of twin turbochargers the carbon fibre GTR musters over 500bhp. Couple that with a lightweight 785Kg body and you get mind boggling performance. LeBlanc claims 0-60mph in 2.8sec, 0-125 in 7.5sec and the standing 1/4 mile in under 11sec. These figures were however achieved with slicks but are nevertheless indicative of just what's on offer for your £500,000 investment.
