600kg sports car a track toy!

2007-02-14 14:05
As if there weren't enough speciality car makers on the skids, sources have revealed that a Danish car maker is set to unveil a new track toy called the RoadRazor.

Powered by a 130 kW 1.3-litre four-cylinder Suzuki motor, this 600 kg sports car is capable of hitting the 0 to 100 km/h sprint time about three seconds. The engine is mated with a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shifts.

The lightweight track car uses a carbon fibre and aluminium honeycomb for its monocoque body and chassis.

Other 'features' on this stripped-out sports car include a foam-filled safety fuel cell, all-aluminium double-wishbone suspension at the front and rear, and adjustable dampers.

It may essentially be a very basic mode of transport, but Danish owner and builder Mikkel Steen Pedersen and his team have allowed room for one passenger in a tandem seat behind the driver.

The production car recently enjoyed its first public appearance at the Autosport International car show in Birmingham.
