The good people at XCAR were the first to get a ride in the new Radical RXC on public streets, and they were kind enough to bring along a few cameras to film the experience. As you may already know, Radical has made a name for itself by building wicked track cars powered by lightweight and powerful motorcycle engines. Now the company is out to give the KTM X-Bow and Ariel Atom something to sweat over with a new line of street-legal track heathens. Powered by a range of engines that include the Ford EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a custom V8 made by smashing two Suzuki Hayabusa four-cylidner lumps together, the company's street-legal line is no less bonkers than its track-only hardware.

The RXC sits in the middle with its 3.7-liter V6 plucked from the Ford Mustang. Despite riding along as the middle child, XCAR seems rightly impressed by the RXC. Though the coupe doesn't exactly provide gobs of civility indoors, it does deliver excellent acceleration and handling. Isn't that what it's all about anyhow? Check out the clip below to see for yourself as well as a Radical-produced video on the RXC.

      Good God this is cool! Where can I sign up for one of these? I love seeing more street legal machines like this instead of typical fat lump of a "sporty" car, What I mean is I want more LIGHTWEIGHT sports cars because too much weight kills the fun in it no matter how good the chassis and engine are.

        Regardless the maker it has good power and decent fuel economy. Of all the comments could have picked something more intelligent.

        This is a great engine, for the price. What's the problem?

        Ford has a long history of supplying engines to niche Manufacturers, Caterham is a good example.

      One of the very few cars I would consider letting take the place of my Lotus Exige S260. Having a real roof is a must in my book - as well as being street legal and track focused. This fits the bill nicely. Bravo!
