Radical RXC: The World's Most Extreme Street Legal Coupe - XCAR
Subscribe for more XCAR videos: http://bit.ly/U9XDKc Radical can hardly be considered sane at the best of times, but with the RXC they've taken their name quite literally and gone a few thousand steps further than ever before. Known for putting Superbike engines in light chassis to create a killer track car combination (The SR3 being their flagship model), with the RXC this is the first car they've designed from the ground up to be both for the road and track. They've dubbed it the 'world's most extreme road-legal coupe'. It's hard to argue with that. Powered by a 3.7 litre V6 Ford engine found in the new Mustang, it produces 380 bhp with 320lb ft of torque. Unlike the new Mustang, however, it weighs only 900kg, meaning it has 422bhp per ton. It's also capable of producing up to 900kg of downforce, the same as the cars weight. Again - road legal. Did we mention that already? As unbelievable as all this may be, Radical's LMP1 inspired car has finished its track development and just begun testing on the road, and XCAR were lucky enough to be the first ever to see the RXC take its first journey. We witnessed it in action on country lanes, A roads and saw the reaction it got filling up at a service station. We even managed to eat a service station sandwich inside it, most probably another world first. Needless to say, we were awestruck by the presence of the thing. The noise, the speed, the looks. It's certainly striking, and with the promise of it being a progressive handling driver's car in the same vein as the SR3, we can't wait until its finished and we can test it on the road and track. All signs point to it being equally at home on both. Words/Presented by: Nick Wilkinson Shot by: Ben Scott/Nick Wilkinson Edit by: Nick Wilkinson Join the XCAR community...

1 Radical SR3 vs 2 Radical SR8's Racing at Croft!
This is onboard footage of Anthony Dunn's battle with two Radical SR8's at Croft in the 2007 British Radical Enduro Championship. Anthony catches Derek Johnston (white SR8) and battles to get past him through the tighter sections, whilst the SR8 blasts away down the straight. The SR8 has 360 bhp compared to 250 bhp on the SR3! This allows the SR8 of Nick Dove (yellow car) to a move on them both into Tower. As Dove & Johnston squeeze together out of the corner, Anthony gets a run on them both & 'keeps his foot in' to pass on the outside of the Jim Clarke Esses at 120mph with 4 wheels off the track! Anthony is also a professional Performance Driving Instructor - visit www.IWannaGofaster.com for more info.
