Rodin FZero prototype, capable of 223 mph of unstoppable speed



Recent images of the FZero supercar, developed by New Zealand-based Rodin Cars, were taken at the company’s testing facility in Mount Lyford, South Island. I suppose there are worse places to put a warehouse.

As a closed single-seater racer, the FZero aims to compete with the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Mercedes-Benz AMG One, two of the most prominent supercars on the track. Even by her standards, the star from the Pacific Southwest looks absolutely stunning.

Like the McLaren Solus GT, the FZero takes design inspiration from the Group C racers of the 1990s. The body panels rise sharply from bottom to top at the midpoints, forming a massive rear spoiler and a The dividing bar is very sharp.

Looking at the car from the front, you can see that the cockpit is essentially just a small block held together by countless beams that make up the frame. Almost like a contemporary version of the Batmobile that Michael Keaton had.

The 4.0-liter V10 engine, called ‘RC.TEN’, is housed in the FZero and its central vent cluster is likely responsible for sucking in more air than the leaf to keep it running. At 9,500 rpm, it produces 1,013 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. According to Rodin Cars, the RC.TEN can reach speeds of 223 mph and will be available for purchase as a crate engine for use in motorsport.

Tech billionaire and passionate racer David Dicker said: “While there is a long way to go in terms of testing and development, running the FZero for the first time gives me immense pride in what people at Rodin Cars has achieved by bringing this program to life.” project. Everything went smoothly on the test and we breezed through our program. As the FZero project moves into its next phase, we are extremely excited. Truly, it is a peerless car.

As a success of the open-wheel, single-seat FZED supercar, this supercar was first launched last year. Although mentally headquartered in New Zealand, Neil Brown Engineering built two prototypes in the UK. From there, preparations to confront serious European opponents will be completed. A reported £1.8 million.
