Radical Xtreme Coupe announced image

Radical has recently announced its plans to introduce a Le Mans inspired road car which will be named the Xtreme Coupe.

According to the car manufacturer, the so-called Radical Xtreme Coupe is weighing just 900 kg and the model is 4,300 mm long, 1,960 mm wide and 1,127 mm tall. The body of the Le Mans inspired road car is made up of composite body sections which are being “sustained” by a tubular spaceframe. The Radical Xtreme Coupe is expected to be used for road trips, track days and race weekends. A full width carbon fiber bi-plane rear wing, along with the front and rear diffusers, will help the model stand out in a crowd.

Power to the Radical Xtreme Coupe is being provided by a 3.7 liter V6 engine, produced by Ford, which is producing a total output of 380 BHP at 6,750 rpm and with a peak torque of 320 lb-ft available from 4,250 rpm. The power to weight ratio stands at 422 BHP per tone and this is translated into a 0 to 62 mph sprint of just 2.8 seconds. The unit is mated to a seven-speed Quaife transmission with paddle shifters which is sending power to the rear wheels. The model will go on sale next summer and it will be priced from 89,500 GBP.
