And it sounds incredible. While the footage amounts to little more than a low-speed sighting lap, the noise of the FZero's V10 chuntering and reverberating with an earthy mechanical howl will transport F1 fans back to the early 2000s. Just imagine what it will sound like at full chat. Regardless, the noise bodes well for a car still in its ‘test and development’ stage at the company’s own test track.
The FZero is Rodin’s second go at a track car; its predecessor, the FZed, was an open-wheeled single-seater. According to the company, the FZero is “magnitudes more ambitious,” with a closed wheel and cockpit design allowing for a top speed of 224mph.
Power comes from Rodin’s RC.Ten twin-turbocharged V10, which was built in the UK by David Brown Engineering before the company brought the work in-house. It produces 1,028PS (755kW) at 9,500rpm and 11psi of boost pressure.
