Revolution Race cars is launching LMP style race car for the masses
Carbon fibre body, lots of down force and more power-to-weight than a Ford GT for under £90,000?
Revolution Racecars is one of youngest British car firms co-founded by Phill Abot the co-found of Radical, has officially debuted its first car the... Revolution as it doesn't have any other name at the moment, but it seems unlikely to remain its name Revolution Racecars Revolution sounds a bit silly after all.
The two-seater is based on a carbon fibre tub made by innovative new processes of carbon infusion, making it just 750KGs it's powered by 355hp 3.7 litre V6 from Ford giving it Ford GT power-to-weigh ratio together with 'best in price' aerodynamics it looks like a real treat.Said price isn't yet known but's confirmed to be below £90,000. The power is transferred via 6-speed sequential-box build by 3MO a WRC gearbox maker.
The car was unveiled and shown off at Silverstone last Saturday, the following video was uploaded to the makers Facebook page: Revolution Race Cars
It's not only meant to be (relatively) cheap to purchase but also cheap the run, the dry-sump Ford V6 is said to only need a re-built every 6000miles or 100hours of racing. This will certainly come in useful as the car is said to be eligible for entry to several racing championships such as the upcoming UK Sport Prototype Cup, as well as be offered up for track day enthusiasts. Car's handling set-up is meant to be enjoyable for both professionals and novices alike.
On the inside we have an F1 style steering wheel with switches to control most of the car's functions, the car is said to offer best in class elbow room for when you are carrying a passenger in the 2nd seat.
