Sometimes five blades are not enough. When a man wants the best performance he can get, he needs the RoadRazer… a mental motorbike-engined track day car that's the work of the Danish RoadRazer company.
The RoadRazer uses a monocoque chassis made from a sandwich of aluminium honeycomb between layers of carbonfibre, which helps keep weight down to just 300kg. It is powered by a 1300cc Suzuki Hayabusa engine delivering 175bhp, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of over 580bhp per tonne, and meaning that the Road Razer promises to be right at the cutting edge of performance.
The RoadRazer uses a six-speed sequential transmission, aluminium double-wishbone suspension and adjustable dampers. Like the Light Car Company Rocket of the early 1990s, the RoadRazer seats two people in tandem, the passenger sitting behind the driver with their legs straddling them.
The RoadRazer makes its international debut at the Autosport International show at the NEC from 11-14 January. However sharp the RoadRazer is, it won't be undercutting the compeition: it will be available both ready made, for £41,125, and as a kit costing just under £24,000.
