‘Five steps to revolutionise the benchmark’

5 Usability

The Rp1’s suspension can be easily adjusted and optimised by the user, either by hand or using basic tools. This allows a level of chassis adjustment that would normally require the services of a fully trained mechanic and means that the vehicle dynamics can be quickly and easily refined to the users requirements when at a track day.

The idea of ease of maintenance is further evident with the entire body and under floor capable of being removed, using basic tools, in less than an hour, allowing easy access to all the mechanicals of the car.

Switchable traction control is fitted as standard. With the option of up to 5 traction control and engine map settings that range from standard road to full race setups, the car can be easily tailored to the individuals driving style and surface conditions.control panel detail2a

The Rp1 is just as usable for traveling over distance as it is for track days.

It provides exceptional leg, elbow and shoulder room to accommodate the widest possible range of occupants. There’s also over 200 litres of secure luggage space, map pockets, USB mobile phone charging and foot-well heating.

The driver ergonomics are exceptional. The Rp1 features a steering wheel with gear-shift paddles and integrated minor controls.

The dashboard includes a colour LED multi-function main display, waterproof centre control panel, push-button start system and a custom electronic ignition key with integrated Thatcham immobiliser.

As standard, the Rp1 features a classic racing car inspired open cockpit with wrap-round polycarbonate visor screens and air deflectors for a pure open air sports car feeling. Alternatively, from mid 2016, Elemental will also be offering a full, laminated glass, heated front windscreen as a factory fitted option.rp1 blue windscreen frtq whitebackground_resiezed

“From the outset our idea for the car was that it had to offer the very best on-track performance but without compromising usability on road”
