Profile

A new player has entered the trackday arena in the form of the lightweight Elemental Rp1, developed by a team of experienced F1 and aerospace engineers.

Power is provided by a choice of Ford Ecoboost engines. The 1.0 litre gives 180bhp, while the more potent 2.0 litre increases that to 320bhp (but with a 40kg weight penalty). Drive is delivered to the rear wheels through racing style six speed Hewland transmission. Acceleration is blistering, with 100mph coming up in roughly 6.5 seconds.

The diminutive Rp1 comes in at a featherweight 580 Kg, achieved through the use of an advanced carbon/aluminium tub and carbon fibre seats & interior trim. The driving experience is certainly track biased, with an F1 style 'feet up' driving position. Handling is second to none, aided by huge aerodynamic downforce.

The Rp1 goes on sale from 2016 at an initial price of 75000. However, this price only applies to the first few buyers, after which it goes up to 90000. Expensive, but still reasonable value compared to natural rivals such as the BAC Mono.
