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.
