XCAR had the opportunity to visit Radical's factory where they took a closer look at the RXC.

The RXC is their latest creation and is a LMP1-inspired car described as being the world's most extreme street legal coupe. It's powered by a Ford V6 3.7-liter engine generating 380 bhp (283 kW) at 6,750 rpm and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque at 4,250 rpm. A seven-speed Quaife gearbox sends power to the rear wheels.

The Radical RXC will do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in just 2.8 seconds and can produce up to 900 kg (1,984 lbs) of downforce at 175 mph (281 km/h). It sits on 17-inch alloys and comes with gullwing doors, air conditioning, heated front windscreen, adjustable pedal box / steering wheel and a big carbon fiber rear spoiler.

Stopping power is provided by six-piston calipers with 330mm discs at the front axle and 310mm discs at the back, while for more money it can be fitted with carbon-ceramic discs. Other highlights include a FIA-spec tubular spaceframe and many components manufactured from composite materials. Since it weighs just 900 kg, the Radical RXC has a power-to-weight ratio of 422 bhp / ton.
