From the aspirations of two young teenagers who wanted to build karts and rally cars, came the dreams of producing the ultimate off-road buggy. Using their own engineering expertise and knowledge, the first Rage buggies where developed and crafted by hand back in 2000. From their childhood dreams emerged a worldwide respected and recognised brand and product range.
We are a British company based in Bedfordshire, England, from our humble beginnings we now design, manufacture and market a world class range of vehicles, sold mainly for private recreational and corporate hospitality users. With our growing international user base we are expanding and producing highly sophisticated off-road, track and road legal vehicles that are meeting the demands of discerning customers from F1 drivers to world rally drivers to high profile celebrities.
We are now also firmly established in competitive motorsport, the RX150 Rallycross derivative now having in its own class in the British Rallycross Championship. In cross country rallying, clients have fielded with success specially adapted versions of the Rage Nytro and R200T. In international motorsport we have vehicles competing in the UTV challenge in Portugal and Kenya who have already proven the exceptional performance, durability and handling under extreme conditions.
Our move into international motor sport and the Dakar Rally came via former World Rally Champion, the late Colin McRae and business colleague Christopher Bibb.
In 2008 Bibb took a prototype R140T to the Sahara for testing. Bibb and the McRae Dakar team then developed the machine to meet FIA regulations and to cope with the rigours of the World’s toughest race – as reported in Car Magazine (December 2010). No less than eight cars were entered for the 2010 event, and in the hands of private entrants these cars have now clocked up more than 50,000 miles while competing over the past three seasons.
It is the feedback and knowledge gained by these endeavours, over the toughest terrain and in fiercely competitive conditions, that give us the confidence to say that Rage products are developed way beyond those of any of any competitors. All our products incorporate the knowledge gained from our Dakar-developed vehicles which ensures extreme performance, toughness and reliability comes as standard.
