Sports car for the disabled

Posted by Ralph | 1:10 PM

Redi AutoSport bills themselves "America's only supplier of sports cars for disabled drivers." I got a chance to talk with Tony about them today, who they are and how they got started. They sell sports cars already fitted with their own propietary hand control system, "SoftTouch" the hand control system is the meat and potatoes of their operation, it's an absolutely amazing system for both automatic and manual transmissions.

"At first glance you might think the RediAuto Sport hand controls would be difficult to use. Nothing could be further from the truth. While they are like nothing else sold in the country, they are very easy to use and extremely well made. The system consists of three major components. An (1) accelerator ring, a (2) hand brake, and a (3) clutch control. The system is engineered to work together. Learning to operate it usually takes about an hour of use."

"The accelerator ring is operated simply by pulling on it with your fingertips. This allows you to control your speed while keeping both hands on the wheel. When you need to remove a hand from the wheel to shift, brake, or light a cigarette, you still keep one hand on the wheel, controlling your speed and steering. This is a very safe way to control the car."

Starting at $1,600 to $2,000 for the auto and $5,000 to $10,000 for the manual system and installation takes less than one working day for the auto and 2-3 days for the manual set-up. If you have ever dreamed of driving stick again give them a call at 888-651-8378 or go directly to their cars for sale page @
