The world has met the Roding Roadster 23 at last year’s Frankfurt Auto Show. The vehicle is still in the development phase, so we were curious to see how it’s doing. All said and done: we phoned our team of spy shooters and asked it to capture the car. The guys just knew they would find the vehicle on the Nurburgring, so this was an easy task.

Now, we’re sharing the images with you, hoping that we can gather as many fans of the “form follows function” philosophy as possible. As you can see, the vehicle is still wearing camouflage, even though it was revealed to the public quite a while ago. This could mean that the car could suffer certain design changes, but this is pure speculation.

Our spy photographers also told us that, during the testing session on the Nordschleife, the Roadster was using the Porsche 911 GT2 as a benchmark. The car is actually set to compete against track toys such as the KTM X-Bow and Ariel Atom.

Roding Automotive has fitted the vehicle with a six-cylinder powerplant that lets the driver play with 300 hp and a peak torque of 400 Nm. 300 might not sound so much as a soon-to-be common figure for the hot hatch segment, but we must consider that the horses only have to push 920 kg (2,028 pounds).

But let’s get to the exact performance figures. The Roding Roadster is capable of leaving the 0 to 62 mph sprint behind in a brief 3.9 seconds and can keep on accelerating until it hits 174 mph (280 km/h). In case you were wondering what the “23” in the car’s name stands for, we’ll tell you that only 23 units of the creation will be produced.
