i think the car even looks cheap.
those LEDs in the front do look like the cheap aftermarket LEDs every second tuned golf in germany has.

Without extras: ca. 190.000 €. Still too much.

Some extras:

19 Zoll Wheels 5.977 €
Sport seats 4.900 €
Sport chassis 5.980 €
Carbon underbody 8.760 €
air conditioning 2.951 €
...

For a 190.000 € car I expect, at least, an air conditioning system...

This car is ridiculously overpriced, but I can understand that.

Anyway, I would take the Boxster S over this, even if this Roding Roadster was less pricey than the Porsche!

Still don't believe its worth 200k.

That's not cheap anyway you look at it, Sure, its got good looks and good performance, But you could get the same and save 160k and get a Boxster S, or a SLK55 AMG, or a GrandSport, a Z4 etc, Or hell you could get the Big Dogs for that money, GT3/ZO6/SLS/Gallardo/R8/ etc, I know a starting company needs money, but I think its overpriced.

And most likely this is without options.

And why in the hell do they spell there company name WITHOUT a Capital R?..

That actually looks better, looks like a baby R8.

I added some new pictures since there was only one how it really looks like.


User avatar

Shaggy  8y ago

I have to be honest, I wouldn't own one, I don't like the way it looks.

@lafars
Correct, but I guess they will get bankrupt in a few years, though. They simply can not produce and sell enough cars to survive as manufacturer. Gumpert and Artega, for example, had the same problem.

lafars  8y ago

not surprising with the price, they need a profit in order to keep producing cars

Fangio Man  8y ago

For 200.000 € you can get a Gallardo, F430, ZR1, etc. Maybe even a 458 or a 12C without special features.

Well, I agree, who would buy this? I am sure it can not keep up with them. But if someone really love this car,...

As cool as this car is, I think you would have to be a damned fool to pay 200k for this, you could get a SLS AMG, GT3, ZO6, R8, GT-R, RS5, M5, Viper, Yet one would pick this? lol ..

Fangio Man  8y ago

I guess you will be surprised about its price, hold on,... 200.000 €!

@ Fangio Man: We have a Kia plant about 30 miles away.

@Shaggy
It is not that close. 101 kilometers by car, 84 kilometers airline.

@ Fangio Man: Cool, the closest car factory we have to my home is a Kia plant, in Vidalia, I think.

In the Oberpfalz! :D

Impressive performance, and seems to be a proper sports car, it doesn't look too bad, but it doesn't really make my eyeballs jump out of their sockets.

Have never heard of this. It a bit reminds me a mini-R8, but IMO, hell, it looks like a disgusting mess!

But technically it's OK. 320 PS per 950 kg is impressive. Manual gearbox. RWD.

But with its design it doesn't seem this company will have a bright future...

Super8  8y ago

The front looked like Gumpert Apollo.

BR2'  8y ago

Im surprised nobody has added this yet, Its not bad looking, And has a manual(Yes!) The name is WAY to plain though, To speed seems a bit up there though. Not sure bout the 2 tone color scheme though, But it gets my vote.
