RCR Monoposto

Remember the days when the drivers were fat and the tires were skinny?  If that era speaks to you, the Monoposto might be just the cool project car you need to keep you busy over the winter!  

Modeled after the 1958 Ferrari F1 car, the Monoposto is a fun, agile car for the casual track day user. 

The RCR Monoposto differs from the other RCR cars, in that it has a tube frame, and fabricated steel suspension pieces, just like the original F1 car.  It's light and with the right engine it can have more power than the F1 cars of the era.  

Available with a Motus V4 "Baby Block" engine, the Monoposto is fast and fun, with a definite vintage twist. But because it uses the ubiquitous Borg-Warner T5 5-speed transmission, it can be adapted to a wide range of engines, from Mazda Miata to Ford Zetec.

The Monoposto can only be ordered as a track car, as it is not street-legal.  Because it isn't designed to be street-legal, the Monoposto can be ordered as a turn-key car, ready to drive immediately.

The Monoposto is a very limited-production car, so call the factory for up-to-date pricing and availability, as well as information on a host of configuration options like different drivetrains.
