It seems that intense criticism and scrutiny that the original Raptor GT was just a photoshopped Ferrari 599XX, prompted Rotary Supers Cars (RSC) to annouce plans to both rename and restyle their upcoming 4-Rotor Eco-friendly supercar.
The wankel super car now uses the Predator GT moniker. The updated Predator GT design takes on more likeness to contemporary Lamborghini's then the previous Ferrari influence.
The engine and powertrain layout, however, are not changed, with four-rotor engine being featured, with the top model producing a claimed 1,200 PS (883 kW / 1184 hp). The enngine will be coupled to an eight-speed sequential transmission, that should launch the 1,100 kg (2,425 lb) vehicle from 0-100 km/h in under three (3) seconds.
There are still no firm dates or on when we may see this super car may see the light of day, if ever! Original plans were to debut the older Raptor GT prototype in late 2010. Well this date came and went, as we feel will also the announced 2012 launch date...
Lets hope we actually get to see this RE beast one day, because for now it is as real as a 3-rotor Unicorn!
Here is a little update from their website:
RSC Germany presents a special blend of high performance sports cars and active environmental protection.
The concept: The launch of a super sports car with a unique drive concept, which is a blend of high-performance vehicle ("Ultra High Performance Vehicles") and active environmental protection and that it moves to the customer in a financially very attractive setting.
With a power output of the top model of 1.200PS in emissions comparable to a vehicle with ~ 120PS and the elimination of emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), we use an extremely young but increasingly important segment of the automotive market. This is achieved through the use of exhaust emissions E85/E100 (Bio-ethanol - e85.biz), a fuel that is produced from rapeseed. But the use of conventional fuel is realiserbar with the FlexFuel option. Even in the electronic networking of all systems and the implementation of innovative ideas in the cockpit, we will set new standards.
In addition, be used instead of conventional gasoline engines, rotary engines (4 slices) with turbo or twin turbochargers used it as the world does not exist in this form. The Wankel engine brings a unique feel and sound with it. The moving parts are limited in our engine type to 5 The goal is a high power output while reducing emissions to 10% and maintenance costs at 70%.
