A trackday racer with road-legal specs, the SR3 SL comes with a 2,000 cc EcoBoost engine producing 300 bhp (224 kW / 304 PS) and offers a Le Mans-like experience.

Radical Sportscars has announced the new SR3 SL, which the specialty marque claims is a "trackday and road-focused roadster". The SR3 SL will make its public debut at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, UK on 13 January 2011.

The SR3 SL is a track-going racer that comes close to a Le Mans experience but one that is also road-legal in EU countries (under Small Series Type Approval) and is Euro 5 compliant.

Powering the racer is a 2,000 cc (2.0 liter) direct-injection, turbocharged EcoBoost engine producing 300 bhp (224 kW / 304 PS) from Ford RPE (Radical Performance Engines). The SR3 SL is equipped with a 6-speed sequential gearbox with Fomula One-like paddleshifters on the steering wheel.

The SR3 SL weighs in at just 675 kg (1488 lbs) and features full under-body aerodynamics.

Radical will also offer a Race Pack options package on the SR3 SL which includes an engine calibration selection for various conditions - 'road', 'wet' and 'racetrack', an FIA-qualified fuel cell, a bi-plane rear wing and racing tire options.
