Saker unveils RapX and Sniper race cars

Article by Christian A., on October 25, 2010

Two new models were unveiled recently by Dutch race car manufacturer Saker, posing some serious competition for Spyker. The Saker RapX and the Saker Sniper are priced at around EUR50,000 and are intended for track use only. The Saker RapX and the Saker Sniper will be offered exclusively in Europe.

There are currently no plans for these models to be made available in the US or Asia. The new Saker series has a different design from the older Saker models. In addition, their weight is reduced significantly, indicating a better power-to-weight ratio.

The Saker RapX and the Saker Sniper are each powered by a turbocharged Subaru engine. A sequential transmission is an optional add-on. There are no official times released but it’s believed that each lap will be accomplished in around three to four seconds.

That is why it is to be expected that race cars that offer comparable performance are priced twice as much as the new Saker race cars. Furthermore, the company is open about the possibility of building road legal cars.

Huub Vermeulen, a well-known race organizer, said that a Saker is ideal for people who search for a track day or race car. He said, “Amateur sport is the future.” The open-top version is priced from EUR47,950 while opting for one with a roof costs EUR2,000 more.
