2015 Radical SR8 RSX introduced with 440 bhp

Radical has introduced the SR8 RSX last week in Spain at the Circuit de Barcelona ahead of the model’s market launch scheduled for 2015. This is a high-performance racecar featuring a tubular steel chassis wrapped around in a composite body and equipped with lightweight 17-inch wheels. It benefits from race-spec brakes and is motivated by a V8 3.0-liter engine generating 440 bhp (328 kW) and 379 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. The engine works together with a paddle-shift seven-speed gearbox and thanks to a low curb weight of only 860 kg (1,896 lbs) the SR8 RSX should be an absolute rocket.

Radical has also launched the SR3 RSX that has a Suzuki-derived four-cylinder 1.5-liter engine generating 210 bhp (156 kW) and 168 Nm (124 lb-ft). While it not might sound overly impressive, it’s still enough to allow the vehicle sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in 3.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
