Article by Christian A., on June 24, 2014

Elemental unveiled the RP1 road-legal track car and announced that this new model will go on sale in summer 2015. According to the company, the mid-engined sports car was designed, engineered and built by a team with plenty of experience in the Formula 1 world.

Elemental RP1 is powered by a 2.0-liter Ford Ecoboost engine that generates 280 bhp, but for those who want the vehicle to be even lighter, there is a three-cylinder 1.0-liter Ford Ecoboost engine.

In addition, there is a 999cc Honda Fireblade motorcycle engine. All the engines are offered with a six-speed Hewland paddle-shift sequential transmission. Behind the 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 235/45R tyres there are four-pot Caparo calipers and 280 mm discs on the front and rear.

Elemental built the RP1 around a carbon and aluminum centre hub. The vehicle features an aluminum composite sandwich material for the floor front and rear bulkheads. Meanwhile, the fixed side walls, central spine and dashboard are made from carbon fiber.

Moreover, the front subframe, steering and front suspension are mounted on the aluminum bulkhead. The suspension features a double wishbone setup with Eibach springs and Nitron dampers.
