Described by Car Magazine as manufacturers of weapons grade race and leisure buggies, the latest Extreme Rage machines were conceived with one vision: to offer driving experience not to be missed! 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 were developed and crafted by hand back in 2000. From their childhood dreams emerged a worldwide respected and recognised brand and product range. The Extreme Rage model line-up now boasts a range of single- and two-seat vehicles with power outputs from 20hp to 200hp – giving sub 3 second 0-60mph times – with a choice of manual six speed sequential or automatic transmission, and reverse gear is standard on all models. The design and production process uses the latest computer aided technology in nearly all phases, from CAD design and simulation, to CNC tube bending, laser tube cutting, milling and turning. All Rage machines have been rigorously tested by their own R&D team, and also by World Champion Racing and Rally Drivers, who are unanimous in offering their praise and approval of the performance and handling of their products on both tarmac and loose surfaces. All Rage vehicles are tailored to each customer’s specific requirements, and are handmade to order. Rage Motorsport pride themselves in the quality of their products, and also their excellent customer relations and after sales service they offer.

The Rage Nytro is also fitted with reverse. A conventional pedal layout is used with accelerator and brake being foot operated. The brake pedal can be used with either left or right foot depending on personal preference.


The Rage R200RT has taken the concept of the Rage a step further. With more power and even more torque, this machine will blow your mind. It is obvious at first glance that this is a Rage, but drive it and you will see that this is something even more special.
