What happens when a KTM X-Bow and an Audi concept car smash into each other on the drawing board? We get the Roding Roadster 23. This is no longer just a unique-looking, lightweight sports car that we've only seen photos of, because the car has now been caught in action. Despite the hate-it-or-love-it styling, this Roding Roadster 23 looks like it's an absolute blast to drive.

The Roadster 23 weighs just 2,030 pounds and is powered by a six-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. The run from 0-62 miles per hour happens in just under four seconds. Better yet, the car appears quick – not just in the straights, but around turns as well. The drivers in the video, which is waiting after the jump, toss the car around like a toy. It almost looks like the car prefers being sideways.

Unfortunately, the "23" in the name refers to the number that will be built. So it's highly likely that the one you see in the video after the jump is the only one you will ever see.
