Westfield XTR 2

The XTR2 is a new generation of minimalist road legal ultra-modern sports cars to bring ultimate high performance track driving to all enthusiasts, not just those with big bank balances. The chassis design, layout and accessibility of all the components and the removable bodywork make essential maintenance part of the fun.

The XTR2 is an extremely lightweight 2-seater sports car manufactured in the United Kingdom.

The rear-engine drives the rear wheels and thus this becomes an RMR (rear mid-engine with rear-wheel-drive layout) sportscar. It hit headlines and caught global attention when it made an appearance in Top Gear, BBC’s television show which features high-performance cars. In the show, it out-performed the then track time champion, the Pagani Zonda.

Weighing a minimal 410 kilograms, this ultra-compact car was in production till the end of 2010. After that, the company ceased production to concentrate on their next ‘core’ product, the XTR4.

This car is considered as a race car though it is road-legal in the United Kingdom at least.
