2014 Radical RXC

Last year, it emerged that 50 examples of the Radical RXC are set to be produced annually. As a result, the potent British-made sports car is extremely rare and even more surprisingly, is completely street-legal despite looking like a real race car.

At a recent track day at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, one RXC turned out to tackle the famous Formula 1 circuit at full speed. Additionally, the following video shows a bright green example on the Nurburgring!

The Radical RXC tips the scales at just 900kg and is fitted with a 3.7-liter V6 engine producing 380 hp at 6750 rpm and 320 lb-ft of torque at 4250 rpm resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of 42 hp per tonne. This engine is then mated to a seven-speed Quaife gearbox with paddle shifters driving the rear wheels and helping to propel the RXC from 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds.

Helping to lift the RXC further ahead of all previous models produced by Radical is that it also features gullwing doors, power steering, air conditioning, a heated front windscreen and an adjustable steering wheel and pedal box.
