The Age Ecureuil is a small three wheeled special car featured in Ridge Racer Type 4, Ridge Racer 2 (PSP), and Ridge Racer 3D. It resembles a slightly stretched Hunslet Scootacar.

Ridge Racer Type 4

The Ecureuil is Age's devil car in Ridge Racer Type 4. Of all the devil machines featured in this game, it is the smallest, lightest and has the lowest top speed, but it's also the most agile and features instantaneous acceleration. Power comes from an extremely powerful 500 cc parallel twin engine, mated to a single-speed transmission.

Ridge Racer 2 (PSP)

In Ridge Racer 2 (PSP), the Ecureuil made a second appearance as the Crinale Kid and Angelus Kid. The Crinale kid has the famous devil logo and racing number 13 on the car, while the Angelus kid has the racing number 0 and Angel logo on the car. At this point, changes have been made. Both have four wheels instead of three, and both sport a two-speed transmission instead of a single-speed. Their top speed is the same as all Special 2 cars, 390 km/h / 242 mph, or 444 km/h / 275 mph with nitrous.

Ridge Racer 3D

In Ridge Racer 3D, it is re-named the Petit 500 and appears as a special car with its original paint scheme plus the Crinale Kid and the red stripes paint schemes. It carries over the same design changes from Ridge Racer (PSP).


  • Its name is French for "squirrel", hence its small build.
