The Soldat Raggio is a race car that is manufactured by Italian automaker, Soldat. The shape of this car resembles the Enzo Ferrari at the rear and the Honda NSX at the front.

It was featured on the Ridge Racer (PSP) and Ridge Racer 2 (PSP) front covers, and was renamed as the Soldat Rauna in Ridge Racer Vita where its head lights were updated.

Ridge Racer 6 and 7

Ridge Racer 6 and 7's iteration of the Raggio is largely similar to its previous iteration, except for a performance increase in Ridge Racer 7 as it is first introduced as a Category 2 car. It also has a slightly longer nosecone and a more aggressive rear end, bringing a more modern and fierce look.

In both titles, the Raggio has the best-in-class top speed but is offset by a below-average nitrous performance and unstable handling. This means the car requires an expert driver to utilize its full potential. In the hands of a skilled driver, it is a very high-performing machine. This makes the Raggio a popular choice for experienced racers.

In Ridge Racer 7, a special Class 2 Machine variant of the Raggio is available by obtaining 100 Manufacturer Points with Soldat. This Complete Machine resembles the Class 6 Raggio in the PSP version, and has a more grippy driving style than the standard variant.

  • The Soldat Raggio may be the successor to the Rivelta Solare, since Soldat purchased the Rivelta line and closed it down. Further evidence is that the Raggio's Class 6 Type-S paint livery is the Rivelta's default paint scheme.
  • Raggio in Italian means "Ray".
  • The Soldat Raggio also makes a cameo in Time Crisis 4. On the Prologue stage, you can see a billboard that advertises the Raggio. However, in the original arcade version of the game, Age's logo incorrectly appears in the billboards.
  • A real-life replica of the Raggio exists, under the name Yamasa Raggio. It was built from the chassis of a Honda NSX.
