Here at the Geneva Motor Show 2012 you get all sorts of manufacturers, not just the big guys! Roding are a relative newcomer and this year, they have unveiled the bespoke Roding Roadster 23, a limited production sports car with a lightweight, carbon fibre chassis. A lot of work has been pumped into this project and we suspect the results will probably speak for themselves in performance terms, if not looks.

Each will be a mid-engine sports car with a carbon fiber chassis and a BMW in-line 3.0 liter six-cylinder turbocharged engine. Each will develop a peak output of 320 horsepower at 5,800rpm and 450Nm of torque between 1,300 – 4,500rpm. The key ingredient will be the 950kg target weight. This makes 0-100km/h possible in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 285km/h. Clearly this project conforms to the old school principles of modest power, low weight!
