It took a little more than 13 years to reach this point, but Radical Sportscars is nonetheless throwing quite a celebration after the company hit production number 1,000 of their line of race cars. As you may know by now, Radical Motorsports has a made a name for themselves by competing in a number of racing series all over the world, not the least of which includes four appearances with the LMP2-class SR9 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

It’s a pretty impressive achievement for a race car manufacturer to build 1,000 cars - the Radical SR2 accounted for about half of the 1,000 - and even more so for a company with the stature of Radical Motorsports.

In addition to celebrating the company’s 1,000th unit, Radical is also giving a glimpse of their latest baby: the battery-powered Radical SRZero. Built in partnership with Energy Future Labat Imperial College London, the new Radical sports car is said to be capable of sending energy from its 550-volt battery through a pair of electric motors, which when combined, can produce an output of around 400 horsepower and about 479 lb/ft of torque.

That being said, we’d like to congratulate Radical Sportscars for this momentous occasion in their company’s history. It’s not often that a true racing company gets to produce 1,000 cars, but these guys - after 13 years - managed to so. For that, we salute you!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

If not mistaken, they are the one that make a solar car? I think they are quite talented! With a small amount of training and luck, this would be soon to be a great automaker!
