Designed for enthusiasts looking to take their circuit driving to the next level with a focused sports-racing car, the Radical SR1 concept wraps up the Radical ownership experience into one easy package with a comprehensive standard specification that is ideal for track days and club motorsport, including circuit racing, hillclimbs and sprints.

The Radical SR1’s LMP-inspired styling is no accident. Developed by the same team that created Radical SR9 LMP2 race car, the SR1 mirrors current prototype design, while the two-seater cockpit is ideal for professional driving tuition, or even entertaining business partners and friends. Powered by the exceptionally reliable, 185bhp RPE-Suzuki four-cylinder engine - used to great effect in a wide range of Radical’s existing products - the SR1 features a six-speed sequential gearbox as standard (with Radical's famous paddleshift system as an option) and a Quaife ATB differential ensuring very high levels of grip and control.

Braking is provided by 240mm, 30-vane ventilated discs with four-pot calipers that generate exceptional stopping power. Occupants are protected by a comprehensive safety cell and deformable crash structure tested to FIA standards, racing-specification harnesses and an integral fire extinguisher system. Latest-generation sports car aerodynamics mean that the SR1 sticks to the track like only a Radical can, with grip limits far beyond the realms of its market rivals thanks to Radical-specific Dunlop tires.
