    1387310220

    There are a multitude of reasons to watch this video, not least of which is the car featured in it. It's a Radical RXC, a street-legal racer we last saw in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

    When this author was 15 years old, he was busy not being very good at cross country and too nervous to ask a cheerleader to homecoming.

    Official: Radical introduces new entry-level SR1
    1340751540

    Their models may not be for everyone, but at the end of the day, Radical has a winning formula: make an LMP race car for consumers. In fact, the formula is so successful that Caterham and Lola essentially replicated it with the SP/300.R. Radical aims to further its model with a new closed-roof ...
