When Andrew Frankel tested the Rodin FZED for Motor Sport, he said that it was the closest thing to an F1 car that “merely wealthy than impossibly rich people might imagine being able to buy and run”.

And now they won’t even need the airfare to the company’s New Zealand factory.

The single-seater car has gone on display in a new showroom at Donington, as the company expands beyond its Antipodean base.

The car on display has an open cowl, offering a glimpse of its 3.9-litre V8 engine. However, to get behind the wheel, customers will still need to travel to New Zealand to test the car and undergo training.

“Our plan has always been to establish an additional UK base,” said David Dicker, founder and CEO of Rodin Cars. “We have big plans for the new space, with a desire to showcase not just our supercars, but also the state-of- the-art technology and engineering that is going into their manufacturing.”

The showroom, located at the main entrance of the Donington Park circuit, will be open for viewings by appointment.
