Drawing inspiration from the sleek contours of modern Formula 1 racing cars, this masterpiece could easily be mistaken for a creation straight out of a blockbuster superhero movie. A testament to cutting-edge engineering, the FZero's bodywork masterfully melds aesthetics with aerodynamics. This automotive marvel generates an astonishing 4,000 kg of downforce, an impressive sixfold of its own weight. Designed without the shackles of racing regulations or traffic constraints, the FZero stands as a tribute to unrestrained innovation, daring to be unmatched in its class on the race track.

Unleashing a symphony of power, the Rodin FZero's engine roars to life with a peak output of 1,160 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and a torque peak of 1,026 Nm at 7,250 rpm. This powerhouse is harnessed by an 8-speed sequential titanium gearbox. The machne above was collaboration result of Rodin and renowned engine manufacturer Neil Brown Engineering.

And drivetrain then mounted on the FZero's carbon fiber composite chassis. Elegantly adorned with air vents, center-mounted fins, and sporting a set of 18-inch forged magnesium rims, crafted in partnership with Formula 1's OZ Racing, and enveloped in racing-spec slick tires courtesy of Avon, the FZero's grip on the asphalt is nothing short of astounding.

Remarkably svelte at 698 kg, the FZero responds nimbly to even the faintest touch of braking. Boasting 380 mm carbon brake rotors at each corner, accompanied by six-pot titanium calipers at the front and four-pot at the rear, the FZero proudly dons the crown of possessing the finest braking system in its class. While this car also employing ABS and traction control, the FZero's brilliance shines with regenerative braking capabilities through its hybrid system.

Yet, the FZero is not a monolith, but rather a canvas for personalization. As individual as its drivers, this hypercar offers customization to align with driving style and track conditions. The privilege of owning this automotive masterpiece extends beyond the vehicle itself. Patrons are welcomed into an exclusive realm, receiving bespoke racing suits, secure storage, delivery services, and the invaluable opportunity for race training at Rodin's private track.
In the realm of hypercars, the Rodin FZero is an ode to power, innovation, and limitless possibilities. With its gaze fixed firmly on the horizon, this track-bound marvel redefines what's achievable, one sleek contour at a time. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RODINCARS | ID.MOTOR1 | TOPGEAR ]
