Go for the best. Think of the Roadrazer as an extension of yourself. A man-machine interface in the most extreme form.
A serious sports car, the RoadRazer comes with the option of data acquisition for logging driving performances and later analysis of acceleration, breaking and cornering performance.
Weighing just 666 lbs, the RoadRazer's dry-sump converted Suzuki Hayabusa 1300cc engine pushes out approximately 175hp, achieving 62mph in just three-seconds. Featuring sleek carbon fibre chassis and bodywork, the RoadRazer promises to deliver stunning performance levels thanks to the car's extremely low-weight, low centre of gravity and effective aerodynamics. Share the passion. Book a test drive.
The RoadRazer is a car you 'wear' so width and height of the driver's seat can be customized.
The RoadRazer is a car fulfilling one purpose only.... Extreme performance. The main criteria's for realizing stunning performance has been low weight, low center of gravity and effective aerodynamics. Extensive use of carbon fiber (just like a formula 1 car) and lightweight metals has been the key to weight savings without sacrificing safety. With a dry weight of only 300 kg you will be sure to find acceleration, cornering capabilities and braking performance second to none.
The RoadRazer is powered by a dry-sump converted Suzuki Hayabusa engine. The engine delivers app. 175 hp. A six speed sequential gearbox is activated by steering wheel mounted paddles. Úse of the clutch is only needed on downshifts. In order to make sure that the power is effectively transmitted to the road a 'torque sensing' differential is fitted. All wheels are 7' x 17' lightweight OZ superleggera (shoot peened for extra strength and weight saving). Tyres are Yokohama ADVAN 215/50-17.
The central part of the RoadRazer is the monocoque. The monocoque is made from a sandwich of carbon/aluminium honeycomb/carbon. Galvanic isolation between carbon and aluminium is fitted to prevent corrosion. The monocoque delivers extreme torsional stiffness as well as a safety cell for driver and passenger. Replaceable nose cone, side pods as well as the engine cover will absorb energy during a crash. Roll over protection is fitted under the engine cover.
The overall shape of the RoadRazer emphasizes on reliable negative lift, mainly generated by the shape of the side pods. The raised nose is not only implemented for aerodynamic reasons, the primary reason was to achieve ground clearance for better handling in real life situations like parking etc.
Engine : 1.3 L., 4-cylinder
Power: 180 hp
In the RoadRazer you can share the driving experience with a passenger. The passenger is situated just behind the driver, with the legs on each side of the driver. The passenger seat is not as comfortable as the drivers seat. Who would want a passenger to stay for a long ride anyway....
Brakes are generously dimensioned. In front 320 mm disks are combined with six-piston calipers. At the rear end 282 mm disks are fitted with two-piston calipers.
In order to obtain the preferred driving position, the steering wheel can be adjusted in height. For depth adjustment spacers are needed. The Steering wheel can be detached for easier access as well as added anti-theft protection.
When sitting in the drivers seat of the RoadRazer you will get an authentic formula car experience. You are seated just 3' above the ground tightly secured by a six-point 3' safety harness. The seat is a fixed part of the chassis. The small steering wheel will provide you with a real intense 'road-feeling'. All controls (used when driving and except pedals of course) are mounted on the steering wheel. A LED/LCD instrument cluster will provided information like revs, speed, acceleration, shift light etc..Source - RoadRazer
ROADRAZER WORLD PREMIER AT AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL
The RoadRazer Company will travel all the way from Denmark to hold the worldwide launch of the RoadRazer high performance streetcar at Autosport International, 11-14 January 2007, at the NEC in Birmingham. The brainchild of engineer Mikkel Pedersen, the RoadRazer has already been tipped as the ultimate driving machine and the RoadRazers stunning performance and sleek racing car looks are sure to make this road-legal track car centre of attention at the NEC.
Weighing just 300kg, the RoadRazers dry-sump converted Suzuki Hayabusa 1300cc engine pushes out approximately 175hp, achieving 62mph in just three-seconds. Featuring sleek carbon-fibre chassis and bodywork, the RoadRazer promises to deliver stunning performance levels thanks to the cars extremely low-weight, low centre of gravity and effective aerodynamics.
The sports cars monocoque comprises a sandwich of carbon, aluminium honeycomb and carbon, delivering extreme torsional stiffness. The driver and the passenger, who sits directly behind the driver with legs straddled either side, are protected inside the monocoque with front and side protection by means of replaceable bodywork, whilst other safety features include a foam-filled safety fuel cell.
Developed using state of the art technology, the RoadRazer also features a six-speed sequential gearbox, aluminium double-wishbones, a Quaife diff and push rod operated in-board adjustable dampers. The RoadRazer is made from composites, anodised aluminium and stainless steel, preventing any future corrosion.
The RoadRazer is the fruition of one mans dream, Mikkel Pederson, who started to build karts with his brother and his father at the age of seven. Mikkel followed his father into engineering, married an industrial designer, Lone Stubdrup, and together they founded the RoadRazer Company. Some 33 years later, Mikkels childhood dream has finally come true with the production of the first RoadRazer streetcar.
Mikkel commented: In my opinion, the ÚK is the centre of the world when it comes to motorsport and related products, so when it came to deciding where to hold the launch the choice was obvious. To us, Autosport International is the place to be, in order to address the ÚK market, whilst getting indications from the rest of the world.
The show has a huge scope of worldwide media coverage and it is unique in that it attracts trade and consumer visitors, which is why Autosport International is the ideal place for us to conduct our networking and reach our target enthusiasts.
Located just three inches from the ground, the driver will experience an authentic formula car experience in the RoadRazer, with acceleration, breaking performance and cornering capabilities that are second to none. RoadRazer has confirmed the introduction cost will be £35,000 exclusive of VAT. A kit car version, which does not include donor vehicle parts, will be available for £19,900 exclusive of VAT.
Sitting in the single-seater position the driver can experience the dynamics of the wishbone suspension and the on-board spring dampers whilst performance can be further enhanced by the adjustable suspension. The wheels are visible from this prime seating position, enabling the driver to have full control over the positioning of the RoadRazer on the track and on the road.
A serious sportscar, the RoadRazer comes with the option of data acquisition for logging driving performances and later analysis of acceleration, breaking and cornering performance. The RoadRazers design philosophy is Form Follows Function. The cars unique design complements itself to achieving maximum down force whilst it thankfully lacks any unnecessary materials used for styling purposes only.Source - RoadRazer
