Radical has released their SR1 entry-level sports car, which is ideal for trackdays and club motorsport, including circuit racing, hillclimbs and sprints. Developed by the same team that created Radical’s SR9 LMP2 racecar, the SR1 mirrors current prototype design, while the two-seater cockpit is ideal for professional driving tuition.
The SR1 is powered by a 210bhp RPE-Suzuki four-cylinder engine. The maximum torque is 130ft-lbs at 10,500rpm. Zero to 60 mph takes only 3.6 seconds, 50 to 100mph in 6.1 seconds and top speed is 138mph. The SR1 features a six-speed sequential gearbox as standard, with a Quaife ATB differential ensuring the levels of grip and control.
Braking is provided by 240mm, 30-vane ventilated discs with four-pot calipers. Occupants are protected by a safety cell and deformable crash structure tested to FIA standards, racing-specification harnesses and an integral fire extinguisher system.
The Radical SR1 retails at £29,850 plus VAT.
