The Dutch-made Saker supercar uses a fiberglass body supported by a steel spaceframe and 2.0-liter Subaru engine.
Just another new car manufacturer in the Netherlands? No, the Dutch car manufacturer called Saker Sportscars has already produced about 70 Saker sportscars, and its production department is able to produce about 25 Sakers a year.
Saker might not ring a bell to most people, but quite a lot of motorsport fanatics are most definitely familiar with the Saker sportscar. Saker Sportcars has been producing two different kinds of models since 2003, the Saker GT and Saker Sprint.
The cars are exclusively developed for the racetrack, and have won quite a number of championships already.
Saker Sportscars is a car manufacturer that works to Dutch standards, a highly developed product and production proces are the main principles to offer the driver extraordinarily performances against appealing prices.
For the first time since Saker’s founding in 2002, Saker has revealed two new models on the 20th of October, called the Saker RapX and Saker Sniper! The outbalanced design has been realized with a great sense of detail and intensive aerodynimac analyses.
The Saker RapX and Saker Sniper are ready to cross boundaries to be shown to the rest of Europe. Saker has distributors in England and Belgium, Germany will be the next in line.
In England the Saker Sportscar Challenge UK will start in 2011, a championship with Sakers only, exactly like it has been done on the Dutch racetracks for some years already.
