After details emerged last month, new British car maker Revolution Racecars has launched its lightweight track-only model.
Headed by Phil Abbott, a co-founder of Radical Sportscars, the fledgling manufacturer intends to bring LMP (Le Mans Prototype) technology and safety standards to a wider racing audience. The Revolution is expected to go on sale soon with a sub-£100,000 price tag, and be eligible for a number of race championships next year.
The two-seater features a carbonfibre tub, manufactured in Germany using an efficient and safe carbon infusion process, and weighs 750kg. That's 75kg more than was originaly claimed, but the weight gain is offset by an increase in the car's quoted power output since it was first announced.
It is powered by a 350bhp dry-sump 3.7-litre V6, sourced from Ford, that is said to offer “proven reliability”. The company promises the engine will be able to do more than 6000 miles, or 100 hours of racing, between rebuilds.
