RSC Raptor GT sports car
German automaker, Rotary Super Cars has recently announced the launch of their new supercar, the RSC Raptor GT. This two seater sports car has a front to mid engine set up and will be available in four different versions, the GT S, RS, RSR and N-Spec.
The RSC Raptor GT is powered by a heavily modified Mazda Rotary engine and depending on the model, a water-to-air intercooled turbo or biturbo system. The motor is flex-fuel and so benefits from being able to use E85 fuel that produces fewer emissions.
The top model, RSR, sends 1’200 horses to the rear wheels via an eight speed transmission. It can reach 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, 125 mph in 7.0 seconds and 186 mph in 15.0 seconds.
The interior of the RSC Raptor GT has two 7″ full-graphic-Displays, where various telemetry data such as speed, mileage, temperatures, pressures, and the chosen vehicle settings and many other data, are available.
The cockpit offers an unique combination of high-quality materials like carbon fiber, brushed aluminum and various types of leather. Many interior equipment packages are available. You can choose from sport seats to racing seats made of carbon with a weight of just 5kg and various stages of multimedia systems.

Highlights: RSC Raptor GT
The RSC Raptor GT S, RS, RSR and N-Spec does not have a conventional drive system as used in most of today’s super sports cars. He has a self-developed and heavily modified, based on parts of the Mazda 13B MSP, high-performance engine with four rotors (4-Rotor rotary engine) and, depending on the model, a water-to-air intercooled turbo or biturbo system. This engine is the heart of the RSC Raptor GT and gives him his very special temperament. The power output of a rotary engine uniformly grows with increasing rpm. The high-performance engine in the RSC Raptor GT has the redline set depending on the selected driving mode, up to 7,500 rpm or 9000 rpm. The fuel E85 is used, which is produced from rapeseed. By using this fuel to reduce the emissions by about 90% is feasible. The RSC Raptor GT already fulfills the Euro 6 standard. With the FlexFuel option he achieved at reduced power and use of Super Plus nor the Euro 5 standard.
The sequential 8-speed transmission in the RSC Raptor GT is controlled by the RSC R-SHIFT system – a co-developed hydraulic shift system with shift times of 25-35 milliseconds. While driving in SPORT Mode the driver shifts via shift paddles on the steering wheel to use the clutch for every gear change. While driving in RACE Mode, the vehicle shifts fully automatically in the next gear, downshifting is done by the driver – pressing the clutch is completely eliminated. To protect the drivetrain, the vehicle performs the desired gear change only when the engine is at the optimum speed range. Furthermore, each RSC Raptor GT has a carbon-aluminum drive shaft, and an electronically controlled rear axle differential.
The powertrain is controlled by an engine management system, specifically developed from Bosch Engineering GmbH for the RSC Raptor GT, including a complete electronic system consisting of ESP, ABS, EBD, R-TRAC (traction control), R-DIFF (electronic differential) and a Launch Control. The RSC Raptor GT RSR and N-Spec also has an active suspension. All electronic systems can be easily operated via the buttons on the steering wheel.
Depending on the model the body of the RSC Raptor GT is of 80% glass fiber or carbon fiber and differs in details in the form and aerodynamics. Furthermore a wide range of special equipment is available. Starting with the rims, complete body equipment packages up to the painting – the customer has no limits.
The RSC Raptor GT also has the RSC VAS (Variable Aerodynamic System), a system that changes the aerodynamics and the aerodynamic properties of the RSC Raptor GT to generate more downforce at high speeds. This system include SBS (Speed Brake System).
The RSC Raptor GT has two 7″ full-graphic-Diyplays, where various telemetry data such as speed, mileage, temperatures, pressures, and the chosen vehicle settings and many other data, are available. These displays create exciting visual effects that show the high-tech genes of the RSC Raptor GT. They are placed on the left and right of the large 5″ tachometer with digital gear indicator and shift light. The driver is always looking at the relevant information and driving a RSC Raptor GT becomes a special experience.
The cockpit offers an unique combination of high-quality materials like carbon fiber, brushed aluminum and various types of leather. Many interior equipment packages are available. You can choose from sport seats to racing seats made of carbon with a weight of just 5kg and various stages of multimedia systems. There also no limits for the customer
