Radical Sportscars doesn’t release new vehicles very often, but when they do, they immediately grab the world’s attention. Founded in 1997, by Mick Hyde and Phil Abbott, the whole idea was to build open-cockpit sportscars that can be registered for road use while also being capable of running on a track circuit without any form of modification.
Take the SR4 CS for example. Released back in 2004, the successor to Radical’s immensely popular Clubsport/Prosport range, the SR4 CS became such a hit that it bagged a few awards that year, including Evo Magazine’s Trackday Car of the Year award.
The SR4 CS became popular because of its nimble and agile nature allowing it to instantaneously change directions while also having a strong and safe chassis that makes it tough and sturdy. Combining it’s easy-to-drive nature with some mighty impressive performance numbers and an affordable price tag to boot, Radical’s SR4 is about the closest thing to a road/track ready two-seater sports car that we can afford.
