This is NOT a public road streetcar in any way shape or form…….If you don’t have any track experience, this car probably isn’t for you. They are not street legal here in the US….in Europe, some places yes but they are set up very differently & raised considerably.
Not to be rude, but I don’t have time to show this phenomenal racecar to a bunch of tire kickers and dreamers (my time has been limited, hence why I have not had the time to enjoy it myself, so I don’t have time for dreamers either, sorry to be blunt!)
If you don’t care for a LOT of attention at any track you go to, this also may not be the best choice either.
I used it a handful of times at Porsche HPDE events……..It has only been overtaken once at one of those events in the highest run group, (at the Glen, full course) where I turned 2:00 minute lap times the first time I ever drove there on very old used originally supplied tires (now replaced). It’s easy to drive and handles like it’s on rails, so if a 60’something guy can do that, think how fast it can be in younger fast reacting hands!
2013 Radical SR3RS; Chassis number SR300800
(Others are asking $60-65K, we can start with their asking price if you like, and then negotiate if you choose!)
- This car has the big-brake kit, the heavy duty cooling system, hi-downforce package, quick raise air jack system, quick fuel system, it was an official Radical UK factory race car before it was sold to the privateer sector
- Car was professionally maintained by 360-Racing, located at Silverstone, Nuneaton England, now resides in Allenton PA (Air cargo shipped across in March 2017)
- Car has under 40 total Hrs (can be verified using the connection cable to the CPU…..cable missing though)….bring one with you to verify if you wish. Engine under “Power” hours should be considerably less, without the cable I can’t provide that accurate number though.
- All the right stuff at a terrific blowout price. One of the cleanest you will find around. It’s not new (has the typical marks from being used), but it’s not the $120,000 new cost either.
- It was a Radical factory race car & only raced a few times by them (and fully sorted….it handles like it’s on rails & SO easy to drive), then used for track days / HPDE in the UK, shipped to the USA where I had planned on using it for DE events. Unfortunately, things change & I need to focus on my health & retirement having only used the car less than a handful of times. I’m a very anal engineer & insist on my stuff being right. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed

One of the best things to have in your back pocket (so-to-say) with this very current racecar is the factory support here “Stateside” from the simplest to the most complex of questions that can be answered locally along with any needed parts…….2nd to none. They will support whatever it takes to see you trackside.
These cars are not inexpensive to buy, BUT they are economic to run due to their lightweight & low engine rebuild costs Vs other hi performance cars. RPE (radical performance engineering) engines are warranted for 40 race hours, with rebuilds from them at approx. $6K, but there are many many other engine rebuilders that are less than ½ that cost. General guidelines are rebuild at 40 hours if it’s been full time raced, but if it’s only been used as a HPDE car (like this one) then 65-70 hours would be the rebuild interval. The car had a refresh by RPE before being sold by them.
If there is anything that you’d like to see a picture off please ask as I have a lot more available, or I can simply go and take the picture requested.
Footnote; A couple of things to consider if you’re looking at older Radical’s, just note that they used different sized wheels in the rear and the tire sizes are not available any longer, this car has the current factory supply wheel sizes (for all 3 of the wheel sets). The suspension front uprights for the older cars are no longer available and will need to be completely changed to the latest setup in the event one is damaged…..hence why I bought the newer car, just a FYI
