• 2010 Campagna T-Rex 14RR

LISTEN 02:25

Ask any 5-year-old what a T-Rex is and they’ll tell you it’s the largest dinosaur ever with a ravaging hunger and killer teeth. Now we can’t think of what the connection is between this dinosaur and the Campagna T-Rex 14RR, but this car does not look ferocious or murderous, and can definitely not be considered the largest. So why the misleading name?

Well, Campagna doesn’t think it’s misleading as they describe the T-Rex 14RR as the "most ferocious pavement predator we make." It’s powered by a Kawasaki sourced 1400 cc inline-4 engine that delivers 197 HP and 113 of torque. The engine weighs only 1,040 lbs and is mated to a Sequential six-speed transmission that features custom designed mechanical reverse gear. Suspension components provide a smooth ride with excellent cornering ability and stability. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 3.92 seconds and its top speed is 144 mph. And if you want to take the T-Rex to the track, don’t worry, it comes loaded with lots of safety systems, including triangulated side walls and front crash zone, 3-point safety belts with adjustable shoulder straps, a reinforced safety roll-cage, and a safety belt warning light.

  • car segment:
  • body style:

The T-Rex 14RR features a modern Formula Racing inspired design with lightweight fiberglass body panels with 16" wheels at the front and 18" at the rear. The interior is ergonomically designed and features carbon fiber visors, a unique design seat with custom embroidery, a carbon fiber steering wheel, and adjustable seats and pedals. It will be offered in three exterior colors: white silver, spicy red, and assault green.

The in-dash electronic instrument cluster is includes all of the usual stuff like a speedometer, trip computer w/odometer, trip meter, achometer, oil & engine coolant temp warning lights, fuel gauge, and flasher indicators. The cargo is removable, lockable, and waterproof. The T-Rex also offers the possibility of optional rear side bags.

Okay, so maybe the silhouette does look a little like the massive dinosaur. The price isn’t so big though, as this not-so-extinct T-Rex costs $56,500.

It’s not the rarest concept I’ve ever encountered but somehow this is distinct. Usually they would come up with futuristic designs. No hesitations about it being prehistoric, the safety and protection is much greater than what others could offer.

Oh no, this is amazing. I rarely found something that is really awkward. But this is somehow one a true kind invention.

Haha, this is wickedly great. I hope to drive this vehicle someday. Wait, is it even street legal?.

What is this? I can’t really understand the design concept of this thing. Anyways, it is really different from others.
