“Radical Sportscars today announces the SR8 RSX, the Peterborough manufacturer’s most advanced, powerful and aerodynamically-developed open racing car yet. The SR8 RSX is Radical’s new flagship racing car offering an experience closer to LMP competition than ever before – at a purchase and running cost far below the competition”, said the company in its official press release.

This is sent to the wheels through the 7-speed paddle shift transmission. The 860 kg racer will be starting from 109,950 GBP, without VAT. More details on it are limited for the moment.
