Roadcars, creators of the EOS Exigence of Speed
supercar is a small team made up of ex-F1 designers. The EOS
uses a three-seat layout with a central driving position similar
to the Mclaren F1.
Using their knowledge of advanced aerodynamic design through
lessons learnt on the race track, the designers have given Exigence
of Speed features such as a two part front wing and side winglets
to ensure high downforce and low drag. These are complemented
by an integrated rear wing, a wide-angle rear diffuser
and side winglets, technology used on a road car for the first
EOS combines the latest in aerospace and motor sport technology.
This is evident in the high strength monocoque
chassis and body panels made from aerospace-grade composite
materials resulting in an overall weight of just 1000 kg (2200
The 500 horsepower Mader Racing 90° V8 engine and six-speed
gearbox are mounted amid ships longitudinally for optimum weight
The Exigence of Speed features a suspension layout inspired
by modern racing cars. Double unequal length wishbones with
inboard springs and dampers are used both front and rear. This
advanced setup was optimised to provide maximum stability and
control under acceleration, braking and cornering.
