Radical RXC: The World's Most Extreme Street Legal Coupe - XCAR

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.

Radical SR8 LM Brutal Loud Sound!!
I have filmed a friend's Radical RS8 LM being tested at the Monza
racetrack. Actually, it's the fastest road legal car at the Nurburgring
track with a lap time of 6:48. The video shows many accelerations and very
high speed fly bys with also a little backfire. In the main straight the
top speed they reached was 302km/h.
