ZAGAME AUTOMOTIVE INTRODUCES RODIN CARS FZED SINGLE-SEAT TRACK CAR TO ITS AUTOSPORT PORTFOLIO
18 AUGUST, 2022
RODIN CARS HAVE CAPTIVATED THE MOTORING WORLD – FIRST WITH THE FZED SINGLE-SEAT TRACK CAR, AND MORE RECENTLY WITH DETAILS OF THE 2023 FZERO HYPERCAR. ZAGAME AUTOSPORT ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE NOW THE AUTHORISED PARTNER AND RETAILER FOR RODIN CARS IN AUSTRALIA.
• The first Rodin FZED has arrived at Zagame Automotive’ s Richmond showroom.
• Zagame introduces a Grand Prix experience to its customer track day program – the Rodin FZED is the very first open-wheel track car offered to clients to purchase and enjoy the ultimate track day.
• Zagame’ s partnership with Rodin Cars endorses the technical proficiency and engineering excellence of the cuttingedge New Zealand automotive manufacturer.
The Rodin FZED has now arrived at Zagame and is truly a car like no other. It promises a new era of cutting edge, exclusive and exotic single-seat enjoyment. The data tells its own story; 675 bhp / 450 Nm of torque / 10,500 rpm limit / 609 kg / Top Speed 300 km/h: this is a purebred track car that arguably brings most drivers as close to a Formula 1 experience as they will ever be!
Zagame Autosport, a division of the Zagame Automotive Group have for many years developed a truly unique program for clients to experience race car ownership, managed by Zagame Autosport. The race cars on offer are factory built and come from the brands Zagame distribute, iconic marques such as Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini and Aston Martin. Rodin FZED is more than at home amongst such exotic machinery as very much the ultimate Formula car track day experience.
Introducing a bold new name to the Zagame Automotive customer, providing an all-new product to their Autosport experience – Rodin FZED. The open-wheel track car has made its way across the Tasman to the Zagame Richmond Melbourne showroom, their latest offering for the most serious race car enthusiast.
Rod Wilson, General Manager of Zagame Autosport; “In 2017 the Zagame Automotive Group launched Zagame Autosport. The concept was simply to offer our clients that next level experience beyond driving their high-performance road car on the race circuit. These are factory-built race cars and offer a completely new experience. To date we have sold in excess of 20 purpose-built track cars, most of which we manage for the client as an “Arrive and Drive” experience. That allows us to manage every aspect of the ownership and experience, including storage, preparation, transport and the operation of the car – including driver coaching. The Zagame Autosport team have highly experienced personnel to operate these cars, people with immense experience in motorsport globally.
“Our new partnership with Rodin takes that track day experience to a whole new level. “The level of detail and the commitment of the Rodin team goes beyond professional, to the extraordinary. The FZED is a sight to behold, with its sleek black carbonfibre exterior, exotic gold surface finishes and low-slung single-seat position which cocoons the driver, giving a line of sight about 23” [580mm] above the tarmac. “Simply put, the Rodin FZED will provide Zagame Autosport clients with an experience that is as close to that of driving a Formula 1 car as they can easily achieve. “This is a fantastic opportunity, but I expect our partnership with Rodin Cars may start with the FZED, but the portfolio will grow over time providing a number of unique experiences.”
Some facts about the Rodin FZED
• The Rodin FZED is manufactured by Rodin Cars in the South Island of New Zealand.

David Dicker, Rodin Cars owner and CEO; “It’s perfect for the ‘amateur racer’ who wants the thrill of top-end Formula motorsport without the expense and hassle of an historic Formula 1 race car.”
Rodin Cars is currently gathering a lot of media attention on the world stage, and Zagame is excited to be an early advocate of this fast-moving company, and of the FZED. This is an exciting time for both operations, and the start of what’s set to be a strong automotive relationship between the Trans-Tasman companies.
Test driving the FZED at the picturesque Rodin Cars facility based at the foothills of Mount Lyford, Rod Wilson admitted he was captivated not only by the world class manufacturing and testing facility, but with the overall driving experience. For a few days the Zagame Autosport General Manager got to immerse himself in Rodin Cars’ track life, thoroughly enjoying the process of customising the seat and pedals in the lead up to his first drive. A warm invitation will be extended to the any new owners of the FZED to share in this unique on-site Rodin experience.
The Rodin FZED could well be the missing piece in your auto collection – an exclusive machine built in limited numbers that will let you escape reality for the fastest experience of your life. Thanks to Zagame Autosport, this dream is now well within reach, and they are certain you’ll agree, that there is nothing quite like it!
