Radical SR3 RS Limited – Click above for high-res image

When you talk about race cars for the road, one of the first names that comes to mind is Radical. The British niche automaker's core model – the SR3 RS – is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion Radical has released a limited edition of its track-ready rocket.

The SR3 RS Limited packs some unique touches at a lower price point aimed at bringing new customers into the fold. Its features list includes oversized vented disc brakes hidden behind center-lock wheels, a high-downforce rear diffuser, trackday exhaust silencer (necessary at many circuits due to noise pollution regulations) and a spares package with an extra set of rain tires mounted to another set of wheels and more. The Limited model also gets special gelcoat paint in yellow, orange or red, with matte vinyl decals for that race-car look.

Oh, and don't forget the 1.3-liter Suzuki motorbike engine, tuned in house by Radical to deliver 210 horsepower to the rear wheels via six-speed sequential gearbox. Only 25 examples will be offered at £49,850 (equivalent to about $80k) including British taxes, which hardly makes the RS Limited a cheap proposition, but – considering its blistering levels of performance – one which Radical says encompasses its best value yet. Have a closer look at the information page in the gallery below for more information.

      That's not a bad price at all for such a fantastic car. But did you call it a race car for the road? What road is that? With that ground clearance, that car would struggle with the freshly paved roads in my area. On the ones that have deteriorated for a decade or so, it wouldn't have a remote chance of getting anywhere.

      This thing is beast. See automakers, its not hard. Light+powerful=fun. Yet you continue to pack more and more crap into the modern automobile.
