Ridge Racer (PSP)

The Rally-X Car (also known as Namco New Rally-X or simply New Rally-X) is a a special car that appears in Ridge Racer (PSP) and Ridge Racer 3D.

It is manufactured by Namco. The player has to score over 50,000 points and complete the Pro 18 tour in the New Rally-X mini game in order to unlock the machine.

In Ridge Racer 2 (PSP), the Rally-X was replaced by the Danver Hijack. The car is made of 3 dimensional pixels, and when viewed top down looks like the original car from Rally-X. When nitrous is activated the car shows smokescreen in its wake like in Rally-X, however it does not have any effect on opponent cars.

The only fact known about this machine is that it was created by Namco, which has a long 50 year history. Non-standard in all respects, it is supposedly powered by a mysterious engine that has been in use for more than 20 years, allowing the car to accelerate to 350 km/h (217 mph).

In its specs, it has the original tachometer and speedometer from the original Rally-X, and boasts a whopping redline of 30,000 rpm and presumably has an engine with over 2,200 horsepower. Its acceleration is very poor at low RPM's, as its torque is smoother higher up, and also given the fact that it has a single-speed fixed gear. That being said, the lack of any redline indicators in its HUD would make it very difficult to perform a proper rocket start as well, but once properly executed (the needle should be between 12000 and 15000rpm), it will launch itself to over 100mph right off the starting line.

The car has the best handling while drifting, out of all of the Special Class vehicles, which makes it a great car for tracks with many corners, which would make it technically, a Mild-class car.

The fact that it has a 30,000rpm redline makes it the highest-revving car in the Ridge Racer series that features a combustion engine (assuming it is powered by one).

Strangely, even if the tires are possibly made out of whatever seems to be like Lego Technic bricks, it still makes a screeching sound whenever it drifts.
