Radical’s Hyperlight SR3 Track Car Gets A Dramatic Revision With The 226HP ‘XX’

Radical’s name isn’t the only thing that makes the two-decade-old company intriguing. Its claim to fame lies in evolutionary automotive design, and over the years, it’s become one of the world’s foremost track-only developers. The company’s flagship model, the SR3, has captured the hearts and minds of many enthusiasts since its conception, and in 2016, it set a precedent for the brand by hitting its “1,000 unit sold” mark. Now, Radical has revised the SR3 for a new generation by introducing the “XX.”

The Radical SR3 XX still calls upon the same 1340-cc (or 1500-cc) four-cylinder Suzuki powerplant that’s been implemented in earlier models. When paired with a performance-focused six-speed sequential gearbox, the featherweight, track-only racer boasts a significant 195-226 horsepower, depending on its orientation, allowing it to hit 60 miles-per-hour in 3.1 to 3.3 seconds. But what sets the XX apart from its predecessors is its redesigned architecture, electrical optimizations, and quality-of-life features, including, but not limited to, a Quaife limited-slip differential, racing exhaust system, redesigned data feed, diagnostically-inclined dashboard, and an AiM solid-state power management system, making it the first production car to adopt the tech. Pre-orders for the vehicle are open now, so head to Radical’s website to learn more about the SR3 XX, and pick one up for yourself.
