- "The new RC410 machine was made to commemorate KAMATA's Gran Prix victory. Even though the expensive 2-door design is the only available model, KAMATA has received numerous orders, Due to this unexpected demand, buyers waited up to a year for delivery of their new machine. This sport coupe was high up in the monthly car sales ranking and became a surprise hit. With its aggressive exterior design and a new 4-liter V6 turbo engine, it is easy to handle and incredibly fast. With all this power, the RC410 has the potential to win consecutive Grand Prix!"
- ―Ridge Racer 7
The car's design is an amalgam of both the Nissan GT-R (for the front grille and headlights) and the Ferrari California (for the overall shape of the car).
It also shares some common similarities with the Nissan GT-R as well, being powered by a 4.0 liter turbocharged V6 engine, but unlike the GT-R, the engine is much larger (given the fact that the GT-R's V6 is a 3.8 liter), and the fact that the RC410 is a rear-wheel drive car (as opposed to the GT-R being all-wheel drive).
Usually the RC410 is always seen in its racing variant, being fitted with a complete Arkbird rear wing, rear bumper/diffuser, skirts and hood, but with a Dig Dug front bumper and splitter, which also makes the RC410 resemble that of modern GT3 cars (in this case, the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3).
Kamata originally did not expect high sales for the RC410, as it was a model designed to commemorate Kamata's Ridge World Grand Prix victory. However, orders started pouring in and the waiting list increased to one year. The RC410 is a new direction for Kamata, hopefully a successful one. The car is powered by a turbocharged 4 liter V6 engine and sports a 7-speed paddle-shift transmission.
It is also Ridge Racer 7's main car being on the cover a being followed by the camera in the first trailer. This car also appears in Ridge Racer 3D and as a pre-order bonus in Ridge Racer Unbounded. and also appears in Ridge Racer Vita but it seems the same as the RR7 one.
Ridge Racer 7
The RC410 makes its debut in Ridge Racer 7, depicted as Kamata's new supercar. Performance wise, it has decent acceleration, top speed and handling but slightly hampered by its bad inertial drift and nitrous performance.

Ridge Racer Unbounded
- Class: Super
- Drivetrain: RWD
- Speed: 5/5 (210mph/341km/h)
- Acceleration: 5/5
- Handling: 4/5
- Strength: 1/5
- Drifting: 2/5
- In the trailer for Ridge Racer Unbounded, the Kamata shown in the video has lesser decals and detail, especially inside the car.
- Judging by its name, it could suggest that the RC410 has a 4.1 litre engine. This is a nod to the Nissan 350Z or Nissan 370Z having their names after the displacement of their engines.
- The RC410 may actually resemble and make more references to the Ferrari California rather than the Nissan GT-R. The overall shape, the resemblance of the taillights (with partial Nissan GT-R inspiration), the fact that it is rear-wheel drive, has a seven-speed gearbox and and an engine within the 4.0 liter range may suggest otherwise.
- In Ridge Racer Vita, the RC410 switched from a turbocharged V6 to a naturally aspirated V8. This would imply that the RC410 may have different engine options.
- This is the second car in the series to use a carbon fibre hood. The first car with a carbon fibre hood in the series was Terrazi Decision in Type 4.
- The car made its reappearance as a DLC machine in Ridge Racer Vita and Unbounded. In Unbounded, despite having it's own name, the game refers to the car as simply Ridge Racer 7 instead, due to the fact that it first appeared in 7.
- As the RC410 was stated to be a special model commemorating Kamata's Ridge World Grand Prix victory, this would potentially mean that in the Ridge Racer storyline, Kamata are the constructors' champions of Ridge Racer 6.
