Radical PR6

  The Radical PR6 is what its builder defines as a “versatile racer that’s at home on both track and hill.” This model sits directly above the entry-level Radical car, the newly released SR-1, which is pretty bad-ass in its own right. The PR6 is a true “racer’s car,” focusing more on technical aspects, like lightweight body panels, precision suspension, and well-tunes gearbox, as opposed to brute strength, like other race car manufacturers. The engine is a Powertec 1,340 cc 4-cylinder variety, boasting a double-overhead-camshaft configuration. This engine pumps out a base horsepower number of 210 ponies at an astronomical 10,500 rpm and 130 pound-feet of torque at the same peak rpm. This engine can be tuned to pump up to 280 horsepower.

When a company thinks highly enough of itself to dub its cars “Radical,” it had better deliver on what its name alludes to. Well, Radical Sports Cars has been at it since 1997 and its sole mission is to build affordable cars that you can take out to the track and crush the opposition. That sounds pretty “Radical” to us.

This is the type of car that can go out and wallop a 500-horsepower Corvette on the track, leaving the `Vette driver speechless when he learns how little power this compact racer is putting out.

So how much power does it really have and what makes it so darned special?
