Launched in 2002, the six-figure SR3 is a mainstay of the Radical lineup, outselling the company’s other products by a large margin. Hilariously, all of Radical’s offerings can be converted for street use in certain countries, but you won’t see too many of these Le Mans-style racers out on a grocery run. Obviously, it’s the car’s track prowess that draws customers, and the SR3 is made eligible for entry in a variety of race series, including Radical’s own Clubman’s Cup, European Masters, and SR3 Challenge. This latest iteration does not deviate from the formula, and comes with several new improvements to both performance and reliability.
British manufacturer Radical is known for producing open-wheeled track terrors that are light, nimble, and devastatingly quick. Like any successful racing car, the design philosophy revolves around trimming all the fat, while incorporating the tried and true go-fast technology you’d expect from a modern racer. The engine sits behind the driver, the aero is big and functional, and there’s a ton of tire stuffed under the arches. The result is a laser beam focused tool for putting down blistering lap times, compromising nothing in the quest for ultimate speed.

Radical is not one of the most recognizable sports car manufacturers in the world, and there is a reason for that. You see, Radical is not a brand built for high volume. The manufacturer specifically caters to the elite enthusiasts who, in their search for adrenaline, are looking for thoroughbred racers.
First launched back in 2002, the SR3 RS is one of the most popular and successful models by the British manufacturer. Built to FIA standards and design cues inspired by theLeMans-racing Radical SR9 LMP2, the current-generation SR3 RS is all about gaining the best performance by improving aerodynamics and decreasing weight.
With seating for two and a chassis built for going around corners fast, the SR3 RS is one of the most fun yet terrifying track-day cars for both the driver and the passenger.

From the people that gave us the SR2 and the SRZero comes a new track-day and road-focused roadster that’s expected to be the company’s flagship model of 2011. Radical Motorsports recently introduced their new bad boy, the SR3 SL, at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, England.
According to Radical Motorsports, the SR3 SL is expected to be their most advanced supercar yet. Certainly, there’s a lot to like about this British beast. It’s got 300 horsepower inside of it, making for a scintillating open-top joy ride. It’s lightweight structure - overall weight is just 675 kg - allows it to to quick and agile, even for Radical’s standards.
And if you just happen to have an insatiable lust for power and speed, Radical Motorsports is offering a Race Pack for the SR3 SL that comes with added features, including an engine calibration map selection that provides ‘road’, ‘wet’, and ‘racetrack’ suitable maps, a racing bi-plane rear wing, racing tire options, and an FIA-approved fuel cell.
Suffice to say, Radical took the time to load up on the SR3 SL, much to our approval.
UPDATE 09/15/11:The Radical SR3 SL has been around for some time now, but it was only this week when it made its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Suffice to say, the car looks hella nice up close and personal, too. Check out the new images in the gallery provided!
