I’ve been trying to think of a way that explains even adequately what we have here. I could tell you it’s called the Rodin FZED, I might mention that it is a highly developed version of the failed Lotus T125 project. I could even tell you it’s the closest thing to a reasonably modern Formula 1 car most merely wealthy rather than impossibly rich people might imagine being able to buy and run.
But that doesn’t really do it. So let me put it another way. Let us imagine you’re a decent driver, with some talent and experience driving quite fast racing cars, be they historics, or modern GTs. I reckon if you were just planted in this car and sent out on a private track, at best you’d learn nothing other than experiencing a new world record from going from zero to absolutely bloody terrified. At worst, well, let’s not even think about that.
“It will be called FZERO – because what’s one better than F1?”
