Build a V10 Supercar: Rhino Racing RR01

Street Legal Track Car: $27,000, No Engine Included

Lithuania-based Rhino Racing has just unveiled the RR01, a supercar that you can assemble yourself – and it’s surprisingly affordable. Even better, the company states that putting it together does “not necessitate extensive technical knowledge”. The RR01 is a revolutionary concept that could revolutionize the way people think about cars and DIY projects. This is a great opportunity for those who want to try their hand at assembling their own supercar without having to invest in expensive technical training.

The kit automobile is presented in two modalities, neither of which encompasses an engine. It is sufficient to select the V10 mill from the Audi R8 if desired; however, the vehicle has been endowed for the installation of nearly any type of engine and transmission arrangement. If seeking the ultimate adrenalin rush, we recommend avoiding the utilization of a forced-induction system.

The most appealing quality of the car is that its starting price is incredibly economical at €25,000 (before taxes), which works out to be roughly $27,000 as of now. While it’s predominantly geared towards track use, the manufacturer assures that it’s compliant to regular on-road regulations.

For something respectable, you’ll be rewarded with a conductive monocoque made out of T6 aluminum and completely constructed chromoly roll cage. Add to that a fully customizable double wishbone suspension furnished with three-way Nitron R3 race dampers. What’s more, the glass fortified plastic exterior comes with body core, two hoods, bumpers, side covers, gullwing doors, plus driver and passenger compartments. Of course, the package also includes dashboard, middle console, wheel fender liners, and a diffuser.

For an extra financial outlay of €27,500/$29,600, you can benefit from the inclusion of AP Racing’s six-piston calipers with 362mm discs front and rear. As well as this, you get a Tilton 600 pedal box setup, all the piping and hoses for the clutch and brakes, two Tillett B6 GRP seats, harnesses, outdoor lights, a cooling assembly, a dual pump fueling arrangement, an Ecumaster ECU plus its output screen and control panel and a set of nineteen-inch alloy wheels clothed in Toyo Proxes tyres.

Yet, there’s still more! An improved and vented bodywork is supplied with this package including a window, windscreen, a floor that has been aerodynamically maximized, a rear wing with plenty of downforce, and a range of other accessories.

The powerplant we brought up earlier comes at a cost of €37,500 (approx. $40,390) and consists of the alluring 5.2-liter engine and numerous accessories, for instance, a thorough retool, mass flywheel with a racing clutch, a direct-cut sequential gearbox, a restricted-slip differential, a motorsport ECU and wiring loom, simply to mention a few. It is said to offer 480 brake horsepower being driven to the back wheels, which however, is less than what an R8 can do. Further, even a Mustang presently manufactures more; yet possibly Rhino is aiming towards improving dependability.

We’ve encountered a plethora of kit cars during the recent past, however this is the first instance we have seen with proprietary styling that looks aesthetically pleasing. If you’re interested, have at it and put in your request right away. The parts should be arriving somewhere around August or September of 2021.
