Rotary Supercars Promises to be Fastest Production Car on the Road
Submitted by Berny Herrera on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 - 10:01pm


Claimed top speed of 450+ km/h (279 mph)

Rotary Supercars has announced one of their upcoming models will be offered with an eight-rotor rotary engine that develops 2,840 PS (2089 kW / 2801 hp) and 2,580 lb-ft (3,494 Nm) of torque.

This will supposedly enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than one second (Top Fuel dragster territory) and hit a top speed in excess of 450 km/h (279 mph). If these figures pan out, the model would trounce the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and claim a new world speed record for a production vehicle if it indeed achieves that status.

Previously, Rotary Supercars announced their Predator GT with a four-rotor Wankel engine - based on the Mazda 13B MSP - would develop up to 1,200 PS (883 kW / 1184 hp) and a second model called the VelociRaptor was also in construction.

We're taking everything with a grain of salt, but the company has plans to unveil their first model at Top Marques Monaco 2012.

RN.COM Note: We have not verified that Rotary Supercars (RSC) have actually made this claim.

And unfortunately it looks like RSC has lost their raptor-gt domain, or at least took it down for the time being.
