UK-based Elemental Motor Company has introduced today the track-focused yet road-legal RP1, following a teaser released a few weeks ago.

The latest track toy comes from United Kingdom and features a carbon and aluminum center tub encompassing an aluminum floor and front & rear bulkheads while carbon fiber was used for the dashboard, central spine and fixed side walls. The front suspension, steering mounting points and the front subframe have been installed on the aluminum bulkhead.

At the back there's a subframe design featuring a "cassette-type" mounting system which enables the possibility of installing different engines to work with the same suspension and gearbox. Speaking of the suspension, the RP1 adopts a double wishbone setup with Eibach springs and Nitron dampers. Stopping power comes from four-pot Caparo calipers with 280mm discs for all 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 235/45R tires.

Power is provided by a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine tweaked to generate 280 bhp (209 kW). Also available is Ford's three-cylinder 1.0-liter EcoBoost along with a 999cc motorcycle engine taken from the Honda Fireblade. All these engines are connected to a Hewland paddle-shift 6-speed sequential gearbox.

Sales of the Elemental RP1 are set to commence next summer at a yet undisclosed price tag.
