As a long-time partner we are delighted to present Radical’s newest creation, the Rapture: a road-legal sports car built for the track. Radical opened the Goodwood Festival of Speed by launching its newest progeny onto the Goodwood hill-climb course, immediately giving it a dynamic debut.
Radical has always been at the cutting edge of sports car development and has recently been blurring the line between pure race cars and road-going sports cars. The Rapture is the successor to the SR3 SL and RXC Coupe. While it features an LMP-style open body with a massive wing in the back, marking itself out firmly as a race car, it’s also got a cockpit heater, comfortable moulded seats, a courtesy light and even a horn.
At the heart of the Rapture is a 2261cc turbocharged EcoBoost engine, supplied by Ford and reworked by Radical Performance Engines, featuring an all-new turbo architecture and air induction system. The unit produces 350bhp and 320lb/ft of torque. The drive comes through a six-speed paddle-shift gearbox.
