OVERVIEW

Radical Sportscars, one of the world’s most successful racing car manufacturers, has blurred the lines between road and race performance with the introduction of its new road-legal sports car - the Rapture.

The Rapture is solely designed, engineered and built in the UK at Radical’s headquarters and follows Radical’s ethos of generating extreme performance via lightweight construction, combined with aerodynamic efficiency and Radical tuned engines.

Few other road cars available today offer the same percentage of race-bred DNA as the Rapture, making it the ideal choice for those seeking a raw, exhilarating driving experience – the Rapture can deliver an unapologetic assault on the senses on both the street and ultimately the track.

Each Rapture owner will benefit from a tailored track tuition package to ensure every owner gets the best performance out of their car.

Power is delivered through a turbocharged 350bhp Ford EcoBoost engine, reworked by Radical Performance Engines, which is linked to a paddle shift six-speed gear change with auto-blipper to perfectly match engine revs to road speed.

The Radical Nik-link suspension system has been optimised for both road and track use and is equipped with fully adjustable dampers for complete control.

Featuring a lightweight spaceframe chassis with FIA-compliant safety cell and crash structure, and high-downforce composite bodywork, complete with adjustable rear wing and diffuser, the Rapture corners with phenomenal prowess.
