stock# BDR1421

The Backdraft RT3 Roadster is not a kit, t is a hand crafted replica of the infamous British roadster with an American V8 that captured every car lover's heart in 1965. It combines the historic looks of the original with the modern performance underpinnings of a BMW. The result is a stunning recreation that maintains legendary visuals while offering industry leading comfort and safety. Through continuous improvement and refinement the Backdraft Roadster has reached the top of its class for price versus performance and features.
Yet another classic Backdraft RT3 from Vintage Motorsports. The throwback style is complimented by the 427Xv2 under the hood producing 565HP at the flywheel and 485HP going directly to the ground the Nitto NT555R Tires. A highly detailed engine enjoys our new "Thump Cam" option for a mean idle. Gold fender stripes are vinyl and can be removed or changed to another color at the new owner's request.
