Time For Tea: RXC on track


There can be little to make a petrolhead want a particular car more than a video of said car being driven hard, set to rousing music. Clearly, that’s something Radical’s aware of, if this latest release on its YouTube channel is anything to go by.

Ooh, atmospheric.
Ooh, atmospheric.
It shows Radical’s next big thing, the RXC, alternately being fettled in a pit garage and being put through its paces. There are a few words from Phil Abbott, Radical’s technical director, before Phil then exits stage left to pilot the new car, leaving us with nothing but the RXC’s fantastic soundtrack, provided by the Mustang-sourced 3.7-litre V6, and a rather filmic backing track.

Having last seen the RXC on a static display at Autosport, it’s pleasing to see it moving under its own steam, and it’s also good to note that development in full swing. With a kerb weight just over 900kg and 385hp, it promises to be just as shockingly quick as Radical’s previous efforts. Sounds like fun. When can we have a go?

    Hmm... Ground clearance disappeared or what???

    900kg, is that kerb weight,? Or down force.

    Im hoping that its the later as 900k is bloody fat.

    Although that chubby weight is the min weight for LMP1 and 2 now!

    Looks very impressive from the video, Britain really is world class, in fact leaders when it comes to this kind of sports/track car.

    A rival for Ultima?

    Like it , sounds expensive untill you compare it to a v8 atom then it starts to look like a bargain ?
