British brand Revolution Race Cars has revealed one of the most drool-worthy off-the-shelf racers of recent memory, finally unveiling its long teased V6-powered Revolution.

The brand, run by one of the original founders of Radical Sportscars - which are distributed in Australia - has promised its newest track-only creation will "change the landscape for race and track driving enthusiasts the world over."

And while that might be over-selling it every so slightly, it certainly does sound fast. Powered by a 3.7-litre V6 engine borrowed from Ford, the Revolution will be good for some 261kW. Which, when you consider the Revolution's 750kg weight, should prove more than enough shove.

The engine, the brand says, has been chosen for its "proven reliability", able to track 10,000km or 100 hours between rebuilds. The engine, the brand says, has been chosen for its "proven reliability", able to track 10,000km or 100 hours between rebuilds.

That tiny weight figure is down to the Revolution's lightweight carbon-fibre tub, which is manufactured in Germany, while the two-seat interior is virtually bare, with all the key driving controls accessed exclusively by the steering wheel.

The engine, the brand says, has been chosen for its "proven reliability", able to track 10,000km or 100 hours between rebuilds. As an added bonus, Revolution Race Cars reckons it sounds the absolute business, too.

The price? Somewhere less than 100,000 pounds ($181,000). And if you're wondering just what to do with it once you've bought one, the brand is also behind a new race series that will take in some of Europe's most iconic circuits.

Watch for the Revolution to make its public debut before the end of the month.
