What's the news?

Radical has added a new model to its range with the launch of the RXC. It's a closed car with V6 power, designed for track and road use. It has been designed with an eye on GT and sportscar racing but a type approved road version will also be offered. The RXC will make its first public appearance at the Autosport International Show on 10th January.

Exterior

The shape is inspired by Le Mans Prototype racing cars, particularly the Peugeot 908. Road models will get full EU Type Approval so all the details including lights and mirrors have been designed to conform to those regulations.

Interior

There aren't any pictures of the inside yet but Radical describes it as 'a simple interior'. A heated windscreen and air conditioning are included but no stereo. There are bucket seats, race harnesses and a roll cage.

Mechanicals

Radical has chosen a Ford V6 for the RXC, and the 3.7-litre engine will be offered in three states of tune: 300-, 340- or 380hp depending on whether it is the road, track day or race version. A seven-speed sequential gearbox is fitted and gets adjustable maps to suit both road and track use. Quoted performance figures for the 380hp model include 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 175mph. Carbon ceramic brakes are optional and six piston AP racing callipers are standard but anti-lock braking is not available.

Anything else?

Radical is offering the first ten customers the opportunity to buy the RCX for £89,500 plus VAT. The full price is just under £100,000 plus tax. In the first year it is hoped that 50 cars will find customers.
