A rather nice video has landed on our laps this Friday afternoon and who are we to keep such racing beauty to ourselves!?
Our friends over at Radical have had their RXC 3.7 litre motorsport car filmed by the tyre genius that is Dunlop. The film shows the car in its all glory, tearing through the North York Moors bringing some excitement to the normally silent hills.
Showing us just what the car and its V6 engine is capable of, Radical have made light work of a beast that looks right at home on the quiet roads. Its 380 hp and 320lb of torque test its Dunlop tyres to the max and if you don’t believe us, check out the video for yourselves…
The hot new RXC gullwing-door’d Radical will be mixing it with the posh stuff at the upcoming Salon Prive supercar show in London, this September. Now in its eighth year for 2013, Salon Prive takes place over the 4th to 6th of September at West London’s Syon Park, and is said to be the UK’s most prestigious luxury and supercar show. The new Radical RXC fits firmly in the supercar side of things, but you’ll not find much in the way of surplus luxury in the born-to-race Radical.
Radical Sportscars are a British motorsport design and engineering success story that we should all be proud of.
The UK has long been a hotbed of motorsport cottage industry with many Formula One teams based in good ol’ Blighty, and many other specialist automotive and motorsport manufacturers also. And makers of one of the very fastest, best-value and easily best-looking track day and competition cars is Radical Sportscars, based in Peterborough.
The Radical SR8 is widely regarded as one of the very fastest pound-for-pound racers on the road and track today. Yes, that’s right, this all-aero, rip-roaring monster is road legal if you want it to be, but most of these slicing racers – including the more affordable but still incredibly quick SR3 – find their way onto the track, most notably for the busy, fast and highly competitive Performance Direct-sponsored Radical SR3 Challenge.
The UK’s fastest one-make racing series comes to Brands Hatch again this weekend, and with championship leader Bradley Smith winning four-from-four so far, the rest of the field will be racing on maximum attack to grab back some precious points. Every Radical SR3 racecar is set to the same performance levels in this series – 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds and 155mph – so all the drivers have the high performance tools to win races. It’s going to be a battle.
