Step aside, Spyker; another Dutch automaker wants to join you in your lofty perch.

We haven’t heard from these guys in quite some time now, but Saker, the Dutch automaker specializing on limited-run race cars, is now back with two new offerings: the Rapx and the Sniper. The two cars, unfortunately, are only available for race track purposes, which means that anybody who’d want to buy one won’t be able to bring it out to WalMart to but some groceries.

The two new Saker racers will share the same 2.0-liter Subaru engine that its predecessors have, although the two new racers will be given a sequential transmission as an optional add-on. On the flip side, the Rapx and the Sniper niper are both lighter than the aforementioned GT and Sprint, thus creating a better power-to-weight ratio.

Undoubtedly, the best part about these two cars is the ‘reasonable’ price tag attached to it – about €50,000, or $70,000. For now, though, the two race cars are going to be sold in Europe, although Saker has stated that they’re planning on having international releases soon.

It may not be as powerful as other race cars in the world, but if you’re looking for a car to enjoy out on the track on a lazy Saturday afternoon without burning holes in your bank account, the Rapx or the Sniper are two perfectly good choices for you.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
