The world of competition is experiencing one of its best moments, thanks to brands that have opted to incorporate into their history models that are willing to stay on the scene thanks to their versatility and their great performance. Now it’s Rodin Cars’ turn, which has announced that its new track hypercar, the Rodin FZero, has already entered its production line and will begin distribution in mid-2023.
We’ve had to wait for three long, tortuous years, but Rodin’s new adventure is already a reality. This model is one of the most ambitious so far, and continues where the previous model, the FZED, left off. Where the purpose of the FZED is provide a driving experience aligned with being behind the wheel of a modern Formula One car, the FZERO goes a step further, aiming to be the ultimate in performance on the track, far beyond what has been seen before.
This model has dimensions of 5500 mm long, 2200 mm wide and a height of 1130 mm, which thanks to a weight of 698 kilos we find a carbon fiber chassis designed in the New Zealand factory. Designed and developed from the ground up by Rodin Cars and in conjunction with famed engine manufacturer Neil Brown Engineering, the Rodin FZERO is powered by a revolutionary 4.0-liter twin-turbo V10 engine with the help of an electric power unit. the engine called RCTEN is designed to be the lightest and most compact V10 ever built. A very impressive achievement given that the engine has not compromised the power, it still produces a combined torque of 1176 PS and 1026 Nm. All while accelerating to 10,000 rpm.
David Dicker, the founder of Rodin Cars has admitted that: “The Rodin FZERO is the physical representation of maximum heights in vehicle performance. Without the constraints of building according to a set of rules, we can make the car lighter, more powerful and produce significantly higher downforce. The only real constraints we face are the laws of physics, and we have even pushed them to the absolute limit. We look forward to bringing the most intense driving experience imaginable to tracks around the world.”
