There are perhaps few automotive niche’s as exciting or as pointless as the world of track day sports cars. Of course no one needs the purpose built race car that can be driven on the street but those that are for sale are some of a most exciting and thrilling vehicles currently built. The new Praga R1R is one of them. While almost all vehicles of this sort hail from the UK, the Praga R1R actually comes from Slovakia and promises ridiculous levels of on-track performance with a convenience of being street legal. As Evo Magazine discovered, it certainly delivers. Powering the R1R is the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sourced from RenaultSport and to help the 670 kg car along, Praga has turbocharged it. That means it delivers 390 horsepower at 6,750 rpm and 391 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm to the rear wheels courtesy of the racing gearbox from Hewland. Downforce levels are so high that it just 124 mph, the R1R is already generating more downforce than its total mass. And that means it’s fast. Very fast.
