concept

The Hyper X1 Racer will be a very small, very light, very powerful open wheel racing car, based on the Hyper Racer 'CORE' chassis, as used in the PRO and TERRA Racers.

Powered by a 1000cc superbike engine, the X1 Racer will produce more power to weight than a Bugatti Veyron and, with full body ground-effects, will challenge for outright lap records.
