Praga R1R to be produced in a limited edition of 68 cars

23.07.2015: Praga has started accepting orders for a brand new road vehicle named R1R. The super




Praga has started accepting orders for a brand new road vehicle named R1R. The super-fast Praga costs EUR 198,000 and will be produced in a limited edition of 68 cars. It is designed both for speed lovers and demanding car collectors.

 
In the modern history, the iconic brand Praga has presented itself mainly through its racing activities, but now it is returning to its roots. Successful production of karts, development of the Praga Alfa plane and production of its our own race cars have now been completed with the Praga R1R road vehicle.


This year it will have been 68 years since the moment when, based on a decision of the governing Communist Party, Praga ended its production of passenger cars and fully focused on the production of lorries. Therefore, Praga R1R will be produced in a limited edition of 68 cars as a tribute to this significant milestone in the history of the brand.


Like the Praga R1 race car, R1R is a single-seater car with a design and functionality of circuit prototypes, but the road vehicle technology has undergone many changes, and the optional equipment can also include an additional passenger seat.


The R1R model is powered by a two-litre supercharged engine in power versions from 330 to 400 hp and torque reaching 530 Nm. Weighing 670 kg, the car has a convincing performance/weight ratio, exceeding 550 hp per tonne. However, the most notable characteristic of the car is its aerodynamics.


 Its generated downforce at speeds of 200 kmph theoretically enables it to drive upside down, which means in practice that it can reach very high speeds in cornering. It also shares a carbon composite monocoque with race cars, providing security at the level of the latest race vehicles.


The basic price of the limited edition car is EUR 198,000. Praga also offers a wide range of optional extras which will be finalized individually, based on clients’ wishes, so each client will receive a truly unique car.
 

PRAGA R1R will certainly be for its owner not only a good adrenaline companion and something to be proud of, but also an excellent investment for the future.


Praga has started accepting orders for individual numbered vehicles of this limited series, and the first deliveries of R1R cars are planned for Q1 2016. For more information, visit www.pragar1r.com.
