From the folks that gave us the SR3 SL comes another race car set to get your hearts pumping on the track. The new SR1 by Radical Motorsports is an entry level sports-prototype racing car aimed at the track-day driver and club racer. It is priced at a measly £29,850, or $37,800 at the current exchange rates.
The new SR1 was designed by the same guys responsible for the Radical’s SR9 LMP2 racecar, so it follows in the same design direction, but tweaked for current track regulations. It has been designed to be ideal for both the driver and the passenger.
Under the hood, the racing prototype gets an RPE-Suzuki four-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 210 HP and is mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox as standard. The SR1 can go up to a top speed of 138 mph and sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.
UPDATE 08/23/2012: The Radical SR1 has begun testing at Bedford Autodrome, one of the locations for next year’s Radical SR1 Cup championship for novice drivers and trackday enthusiasts. Radical has marked this time in their history with a new video introducing all drivers to their new Radical SR1. Check it out by clicking on the image above.
