Peterborough, Cambridgeshire (UK) – Wednesday 2nd October 2019; RadicalSportscars will join its official lubricants partner Motul at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, as the British manufacturer makes its US debut of the new Rapture turbocharged trackday sportscar.
When simply defined, Rapture essentially means a feeling of intense pleasure or joy. And therein lies both the car’s selling point, and its primary mission: To deliver an emotive driving experience like no other.
The Rapture follows Radical’s proven ethos of generating extreme performance via lightweight construction combined with aerodynamic efficiency, instead of relying solely on headline-chasing power and top speed figures.
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. Drive comes through a six-speed paddle-shift gearbox.
Drawing on Radical’s past experience with both the road-going SR3 SL and RXC Coupe, the Rapture features an enhanced version of the firm’s proven Nik-link suspension system, and is complete with adjustable dampers.
