Looks like the Germans have picked up where the Brits left off making sportscars. Here’s a new version of the Roding Roadster set for Geneva Motor Show debut.

Called the Roadster 23 – because it’s limited to 23 units – the car has gone up in the world compared to the first car and boasts a nicer design and an advanced carbon-fiber chassis. That is the main reason it weighs only 950kg.

So it fulfills the first criteria of being a proper sports car by being light. It also doesn’t disappoint in terms of power, what with a 320hp MW turbo I-6 engine under the bonnet.

As a result of light weight and big power, the Roadster 23 makes 100km/h from standing still in 3.9 seconds, while 80-120km/h takes no more than 4.0 seconds in fifth gear. The makers claim an astonishing fuel consumption of just 8.2-liters per 100 km for this car.

Further evidence of the 23 being a real sports car is the use of a a six-speed manual transmission to channel the power to the rear wheels through a Torsen limited slip diff. It is then transferred to the ground via 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/40 and 255/35 size Toyo Proxes R888 semi-slick tires on them.
