Radical SR3 SL

Everyone who’s into racing will know British car make Radical from its SR8 model which is keeping the lap-record time on the Nürburgring in Germany. Radical also builds the SR3, a more civilized race car for people who like to do a track day every now and then.

The original Radical SR3 is a road-legal car. The British now want their more powerful SL version to be road-legal as well. Plans are to release the SR3 SL on the Autosport International Show in Birmingham next month.

The SR3 SL will come with a 2.0 liter Ford ST engine tuned up to 300bhp instead of its original 1.3 liter or 1.5 liter Suzuki Hayabusa engine. The power in the new car is converted to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox fitted with F1-style paddle shifters. Total weight of the SR3 SL is just 1,488 pounds (674kg). A true race monster if you ask us!

  1. The news here are not the road legal capability. Radical makes road legal SR3 from the debut of the model. The news here are the engine. Till now SR3 was powered by 1.3l or 1.5l Suzuki Hayabusa engines. And if you ask me I still prefer 1.5 turbocharged Busa engine.

  2. The ring record was set by a Radical which was driven to the Nürburgring from the UK. But the car is not legal in all European countries. For example in Germany you can’t register a Radical while in the UK you can register the car!

  3. As a member of the European Union, every vehicle registrable in UK is registrable in any other country of the European Union. (but need a lot of paperwork)

  4. @Fabian: that info is simply wrong.
    Do you think you could easily register the driving table from the UK f.ex. in Germany?
    That would need a lot of fixes and not only paperwork.

  5. But not in Bulgaria. You can buy english car and register it in BG without any problems. Which is stupid ‘couse low beam hedlighst blinds the incoming cars. Funny fact when you import US car in BG you should change the headlights ‘couse they dont have this rise in the right corner on the low beam lights. They a flat. But if you want to register UK car with dangerous low beam lights – NO PROBLEM!
