Radical SR1 2013

For those of you who are becoming regulars at circuit racing, hillclimbs and sprint events and want a motor which is an all-rounder and also not too expensive to run, Radical are propositioning the new SR1. Priced at £29,850 you get a highly tuned trackday car with LMP styling. As with its Radical brothers, the new SR1 is powered by a Suzuki 1340cc 4-cylinder double overhead cam engine with a dry-sump oil system. The entry level model is capable of 210hp and 130lb ft at 10,500rpm and uses a six-speed sequential gearbox. Zero to 60mph happens in just 3.6 seconds and at 138 mph it tops out.


  • Model: SR1
  • Year: 2013
  • Other info: The new Radical SR1 is built around a carbon steel space-frame chassis with an integral safety cell and an aluminum front crash structure, it also has racing-specification harnesses and an integral fire extinguisher system.
