BMW-Powered Roding Roadster is a Sight to Look at in Geneva


There's nothing new to report about German startup Roding and its first production car, the Roadster, which returns to the Geneva Auto Show after its world premiere last year, but then again, there's no way that the black and yellow sports car that reminds us of a cross between an Audi R8 and a Smart Roadster can go unnoticed either…
Featuring a lightweight construction with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) chassis cell that keeps curb weight at just 950kg (2,094 pounds), the Roadster draws its power from a mid-mounted 316hp (320PS) 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine borrowed from BMW.
A six-speed manual transmission with a mechanical limited slip differential (TORSEN system with up to 40 percent locking ratio) feed the rear wheels, with Roding quoting a zero to 100km/h (62mph) sprint time of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 285km/h (177mph).
We're also told that the Roadster can come to a complete stop from a speed of 100km/h (62mph) in 34.5 meters (113.2 feet).
The model on display at the Swiss show is the first of the 23 special edition variants planned for sale by Roding.
