Remember Rage Motorsport? crankandpiston.com caught up with company managing director Anthony Allsop in Abu Dhabi, where the chat turned to Rage’s roots and future direction, competition history with the British Rally Championship and development ideas in the Middle East. And fiendishly fast desert buggies, of course.

Take the Comet R200RT (the ‘R’ for short), a 475kg road-legal monster powered by a 197bhp Kawasaki ZZR1400 1352cc motorcycle engine capable of hitting 0-100kph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 190kph-plus. On or off-road. On 14-inch tyres. Without doors.

If you’d like to see what that experience is like without turning your hair white, then you might like to check out the below clip. Before that, we thought you might like to see how the Rage Motorsports Comet R is made, courtesy of this newly released video.
