The Roding Roadster 23 is a lightweight, minimalist sports car
which comes from Germany.
First off, lets get the styling out of the way. It's not great.
In fact it's pretty bad. It looks like the designer had a distinct
hatred of curves, and a stationary box stuffed with rulers.
The array of horizontal slats give the Roding Roadster 23 an
Audi-esq appearance, almost as if the old-school boxy Audi Quattro
had a one-night stand with a TT and bad things occurred.
However if you can forgive the styling, then the Roding Roadster
23 does have some impressive engineering on offer - for a small
The Roding Roadster 23 is a very limited edition model and only
23 are scheduled to be made. Each is a highly tuned piece of
track machinery, incorporating a carbon
fiber chassis, aluminium subframes, race derived engineering
and a potent engine.
The Roding Roadster 23 is powered by a 300 horsepower 6-cylinder
turbocharged engine which develops 400 Nm of torque. The transmission
is handled by a 6-speed manual with limited slip differential.
This divides the engine power between the rear wheels, increasing
the available traction while accelerating. Top speed of the
Roding Roadster 23 is 174 mph (280 km/h). The sprint to 62 mph
(100 km/h) takes 3.9 seconds.
Every Roding Roadster 23 is manufactured by hand in a modern
production process, and can be customized to the smallest detail
upon request. That means that while the car is primarily intended
for dominating on the track, it can also be equipped with gadgets
and options which make it more comfortable and luxurious. Optional
items include a high-end multimedia system, adjustable Recaro
seats (in place of lightweight racing seats) and air conditioning.
