Reasons To Buy A Raptor
Our cars are designed to give you the experience you'd expect from a car like ours. We pride ourselves in everything we do and we strive to be the best in our field. Read on to find out more about what we offer.
A chassis needs to be exceptionally strong but also very light. In 2019 we redesigned our chassis using a stronger grade of steel tubing throughout in order to give a balance between strength and lightness.
Raptor Suspension System
This is a "sports" car chassis that gives you exceptional handling due to it's rigid structure and award winning suspension system. This level of design detail gives you excellent driver feedback making it a very rewarding car to drive on the road and track.
The F1 style front push rod suspension system is an example of how we strived to have a modern efficient suspension system making the Raptor one of the best handling cars on the market.
The advantages of a modern suspension system are:
Less aero drag by positioning the two shock absorbers in-board.
By moving the shock absorbers in-board there is less unsprung weight on the front wishbones.
Easy adjustment of ride height.
Very easy to tune damper.
Vast improvement in motion ratio.
Minimal bump steer.
A double wishbone design on the rear with built in rear toe adjustment.
The Raptor has one of the widest tracks in the industry and this vastly improves stability.
The car's track being near symmetrical front to rear gives a better balanced chassis.
All roll cage material used in building the Raptor is made from material that exceeds Motorsport UK and FIA regulations. Side and rear impact protection have also been added. This vastly improves the structural strength of the Raptor and improves driver safety.
We recognise that as a generation we are getting taller and bigger in stature so we have re-designed our standard chassis so that it can comfortably accommodate the taller driver.
Heated Seat option.
12v Din Socket.
Cabin net pockets.
Rear parking sensors. (optional )
Lux interior pack (optional)
The heart and soul of any sports car is its engine. With Andy's 20 years of experience in building competitive engines for Motorsport you'll be sure you are buying power and reliability.
In keeping with our ethos, our selection process on engine power units is based on the engine weight and the bhp it produces. Only the lightest and most powerful units are used. It is this attention to detail that gives the Raptor it's stunning performance and nimble handling.
The RR235/RR350 and the CS380 are pinnacles of the Raptor Motorsport Engine Division. These units all use Raptor Motorsport Engine Management Systems to control the high pressure direct fuel injection system. The high pressure direct injection engine improves emissions, fuel efficiency and performance massively over the older port injection ECU systems. The end result is that we have a lightweight and compact 1600cc engine producing upwards of 235bhp. This clearly shows the advantages of utilising modern engine technology with our commitment to building the most exhilarating, fun sports cars that we can.
For those who are keen DIYers, the Mazda Mx5 engine offer phenomenal value for money offering massive scope of tune-ability . We have painstakingly redesign our award winning chassis to accept key Mazda Mx5 components in order to keep self build cost down.
We offer care plans for all our Raptor sports cars. We have a fully functioning workshop to cater for all your Raptor needs, whether is new cars sales , servicing, upgrades, parts and even insurance approved repairs we can meet all your requirements
Full engine diagnostic checks can be carried out over the internet on all of our 1600cc Ecoboost powered cars.
