Traxx, great handling combined with ultimate power

Early History
Traxx was founded in 1958, but Traxx Racing was originally founded in 1914. Traxx Racing started out as a racing team, using cars and engines from other manufacturers. They entered lots of racesfrom 1914 to 1917 with cars from other manufacturers and with engines tuned by the racing team. Traxx Racing was only a racing team in this period and only tuned engines bought from other manufacturers to compete in races. In 1918 Traxx Racing started producing their own racing cars, and in 1919 their own engines to use in race series they entered. The first year as a car manufacturer they used engines from other cars that were specially tuned by Traxx Racing before the racing cars were released. All cars produced by Traxx Racing were racing cars, none of these cars were road legal. Traxx Racing did well in their early years, in both racing and producing race cars and race engines. Thanks to sponsors they could afford to hire a R&D team to further improve their engines and cars.This was a big change for them. Traxx Racing now got the opportunity to make better cars and engines to still be competitive in the race series they entered. Traxx Racing offered to sell platforms and engines to other teams. More racing teams chose their models and engines after the improvements. Traxx Racing was never one of the best or biggest racing teams at this time, but they did very well. In 1958 Traxx Racing decided to start producing road cars. Their dream and imagination was to give people the chance to drive cars which handled as good as race cars, had the power of a race carbut that could be affordable for anyone and that could be used everyday. It was also very important that all cars felt good to drive, that the driver actually controlled the car. Therefore Traxx Racingdidn't want to make cars that were very easy to drive, it had to feel like you were controlling this fine piece of machine. Traxx Racing didn't want to sell the cars under the name Traxx Racing anddecided to create a new company called Traxx. Traxx were the road versions of the Traxx Racing cars, desinged to be affordable and used as an everyday car. Traxx Racing continued as a racing team, using their own racing engines and platforms to compete.

Modern History
Traxx started to produce road cars in 1958. These cars were designed by Traxx Racing and then given to the Traxx design team to make them competetive road cars. The Traxx design team made the model ready for production after Traxx Racing had designed the exterior. Traxx only took care of interior, brakes and the engine. After some years Traxx was starting to make more money. They sold more cars than ever. More people found these cars interesting. The early cars weren't that good. This was mostly because they were designed as racing cars which caused them to not be very good road cars, but over the years this was improved. When Traxx started to sell a lot of cars, they decided to expand their team. Now Traxx did all the work for the road cars. Traxx Racing could now focus on the racing cars and racing engines and didn't need to worry about the road cars.
Traxx Racing is the original Traxx brand. Traxx was founded by Traxx Racing and was always controlled by Traxx Racing. In more recent time, Traxx have started to take their own choices when deciding what type of cars to produce. The two manufacturers are more seperated than ever, but Traxx Racing is still in charge of Traxx, and Traxx is owned by Traxx Racing.

Traxx TRT
Most car manufacturers have special tuning departments which tune their normal road cars to be sportier and faster, more fun. BMW has the M series: BMW M3, M5 and more series. Mercedes hasAMG. Traxx has their own special tuning department. Hyper cars and some super cars might not be tuned by our special tuning team because they are designed to be sporty and fast from the start.The cars tuned by our tuning team were fine tuned by them, and only a few of our exclusive cars are tuned by them. The short name for our tuning team is TRT. They make sure that no Traxx is boring to drive!

Traxx: General Info: Traxx is a small car company producing sport cars, super cars and hyper cars. All Traxx cars are designed to be fast with good handling, but also an everyday car.
Traxx Racing: General Info: Traxx Racing is the racing versions of the normal Traxx cars. All Traxx Racing cars are designed 100% for racing and do not pass road standards, they are therefore not road legal.
