Rotary Raptor GT Ready for Action

Don't you just love those little car manufacturing companies with a mission to impress? If it weren't for them, we might forget that, if certain conditions are met, there's nothing we can't do if we put our minds to it.

Take the Raptor GT, the brain child of German car builders Rotary. The guys from the aforementioned company say they were looking for a car which would blend high performance with power efficiency, value for money and the use of high-tech materials. Since they didn't find any (??), they decided to build their own: the Raptor GT.

Build in house and by using several parts of a Mazda rotary engine, Rotary (we reckon there's a connection here) developed a four-rotor unit boosted by either a water-to-air intercooled turbo or biturbo system.

Since the super car will be offered in four grades (S, RS, RSR and N-Spec), the power output of the engine can vary, ranging from a mild 500 hp troop to an 800 horsepower army. And that's not all, as even a meaner version, called VelociRaptor (yes, just like the 2012 Hennessey VelociRaptor APV), will spit in excess of 1,200 hp...

Now, there's no word on the price or anything like that, but Rotary promises to offer both right- and left-hand drive versions of the model. When exactly will that be is also a mystery.

“We guarantee the best workmanship and highest individuality. The selective use of proven components increases the active/passive safety while reducing production costs, which ultimately benefits every buyer,”
the company says.

More to follow, of course...
