Radical Announces RXC Supercar

Radical has announced a Le Mans-inspired race car for the road and race track called Radical Xtreme Coupe, or in short, the RXC.

According to Radical, the RXC is the culmination of three and a half years of design and development to create the world’s most extreme road-legal coupe.

The RXC is Radical’s first coupe, with an adjustable GT3-specification rear wing and gullwing doors. The bodywork covers a laser-cut CDS tubular steel spaceframe, developed in the same way as Radical’s FIA-approved SR series chassis.

Power comes from a 380bhp 3.7-litre V6 sourced from Ford, with power sent to rear wheels through a seven-speed paddle shift gearbox. Thanks to its low weight of just 900kg, the RXC does 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds, while the top speed is 175 mph.

Other highlights include air conditioning, power steering, adjustable steering wheel and pedal box, heated front screen, race-spec Corbeau seats with 6-point harnesses and optional data logging package.

The RXC will make its public debut at the Autosport Show in January. Road legal and race versions will be both available.
