Last Updated On: 24/05/2020
Raptor Sports Cars manufacture a range of Seven style cars, but with a number of significant differences to other makes, helping to give them a more extreme edge, and making them ideal for road, track day or competition use.
Chassis design is very important to the Raptors, as the company was anxiuous to make the cars accessible to the taller person person, something not always possible with other makes. The chassis itself has been carefully designed with the heavy coil over units from the front wishbones placed inboard with suspension movement transmitted by rocker arms and pushroad assemblies derived from F1™ machines.The chassis can even be constructed from either square section or round tubing.
Raptor Sports Cars offer a range of two Raptors, RR and CS and both models are available with either modern Ford car or Kawasaki and Yamaha bike powerplants, both types with various power outputs. This can range from the entry-level RR140, 140bhp Ford Zetec 1.6 S engine, 0-60mph (97km/h) in 4.9 seconds, top speed 126mph (203km/h), right up to the faintly scary CS380, 380bhp Ford 1.6 Eco Boost engine which propels the car from 0-60mph (97km/h) in a startling 3.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 161mph (259km/h).
All models are available with a choice of two interior layouts. The buyer can simply choose the low-slung aero screens, as shown in the images, or opt for a full-width heated windscreen and full weather gear.
The Raptor is also available as a self-build project.
