The Australian sports car firm - backed by motor sport legend Tom Walkinshaw – has announced their new rival to the Caterham and Westfield market at the Sydney motor show.
The new roadster is powered by a turbo 2.0-litre block that produces 260bhp and 258lb/ft. Though the car weighs more than a Caterham R400 by 225kg, at 750kg, the pure pulling power of the T5 means it will reach 60mph in 3.7 seconds, a whole 0.1 seconds quicker than the R400.
There is no confirmation on the price yet, but it is expected to retail around $50,000 Australian dollars – which converts to 19,500 of your finest British Pounds. There is also no news if Hertz has got one in for rental either.
