Design and performance
The car was designed by specialists from the former company Rivelta after Soldat and Rivelta merged. The car's design is heavily influenced by the Ferrari 360 Modena, even going so far as incorporating Ferrari's trademark red valve covers on its visible mid-mounted engine. It also bears resemblance to the McLaren 12C , but the resemblance is probably coincidental, since the 12C did not exist at the time of the game's release.
In terms of performance, this car features similar pros with the RC410, featuring a good combination of acceleration, top speed and handling, but hampered with bad nitrous performance. While not quite as speedy as the Centellee and RC410, is still a capable racer, and can easily match the twin designs from Assoluto, and also appears in Ridge Racer Vita as a full-blown race car fitted with big spoiler (it looks like the RR6 ver but a little bigger) and has a body kit.
A Complete Machine variant of the Meltfire is available as an unlockable in Ridge Racer 7.
