Co-founder of British automaker Radical Sportscars, Phil Abbott, is launching a lightweight, track-only model through his new company Revolution Race Cars later this year.
The new car as shown in the sketch will be a two-seater named ‘The Revolution’, and is said to be “an all-new track and race car conceived, designed, developed and built by racers for racers”. The automaker claims it will weigh just 675 kg thanks to the carbon fibre monocoque made in Germany. Powered by a 300bhp 3.7-litre V6 that could go over 6000 miles or 100 hours of racing, it is paired with a six-speed sequential gearbox made by racing specialist 3MO, using technology inspired by World Rally Championship cars. The company aims to bring Le Mans Prototype technology and safety, as well as Formula 1-style controls to a wider racing audience, while the starting price of the track car will start from less than £100,000.
More information and images will be released in a month’s time, and the car will make its public debut on Silverstone in early November.
