Many cars have come and gone claiming to be "race cars for the road," but few actually live up to it. Not Radical, though. The British automaker does one thing and one thing only, and that's making Le Mans Prototype-style track cars that you can – technically speaking, at least – drive on the street. (That, and regularly trouncing six- and seven-figure supercars around the Nürburgring to continuously hold the vaunted lap record.)

Radical has been making these cars for years. And to be fair, the SR3 SL isn't a brand new model – it came out several months ago. So why are we reporting on it, you ask? Because this is the first time we've actually seen a Radical – any Radical – up close and personal, this being the first time the company has displayed at a major international auto show outside the UK.

So check it out in our gallery of live images from the show floor of Frankfurt, and revel in the fact that while you probably wouldn't, you could, hypothetically, actually drive one of these on the road.

      This is a bullshit car. no one with any sense would be caught dead in this kit car heap on the streets . Honestly and to be honest I think its disrespectful to insult the real auto manufactures with this kit car knowing its just bending the rules to sit atop the ring times. Does anybody really car if you put a horn turn signals brake lights and headlights on a go cart. no . Yes its street legal but no one would ever purchase with the intent to STREET it. rich folks only use this thing as an easier way to get into the go cart they have always wanted.

        The same could be said for any road legal trackday special supercar with rock hard suspension and no amenities whatsoever. Only difference is that you don't have to be super rich to own one. I bet if it were 10x the price and had twice the weight and power and a different badge, you would be all over it. Unlike Lambos and Ferraris, this is a fast car meant to go fast, really fast. So what if it isn't destined to cruise Beverly Hills and pick up supermodels? Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's bullshit.
