Overview

Radical Sportscars, one of the world's most successful racing car manufacturers, has blurred the lines between road and race performance with the introduction of its new road-legal sports car - the Rapture.

“The new Radical Rapture tops the brand's range, bringing race-inspired design to the road.” Sam Jenkins, Evo.

High performance combined with real downforce, makes the Radical Rapture an exciting new road-legal track day car, which is accessible to both experienced drivers and novices alike.

Each Radical Rapture owner will benefit from a tailored track tuition package to ensure every owner gets the best out of their new high performance car. 

“The Rapture is, predictably, quite light. 765kg, all-in. so it’s fast – 0-60mph takes 3 seconds flat, and 0-100mph 8.4 seconds. The top speed is 165mph.” Tom Harrison, Top Gear.

Power is delivered through a turbocharged 350bhp Ford EcoBoost engine, reworked by Radical Performance Engines, which is linked to a paddle shift six-speed gear change with auto-blipper to perfectly match engine revs to road speed. 

The Radical Nik-link suspension system has been optimised for both road and track use and is equipped with fully adjustable dampers for complete control. 

“In fact, while thunderously quick, with a consistent, relentless shove across a wide rev range from the EcoBoost motor, eye-popping stopping power from the brakes (300mm 48-vane fully-floating discs at the front, 280mm versions at the rear, with four-pot calipers) and excellent grip through the turns, the Rapture remained calm and composed.” Will Dron, The Sunday Times Driving.

Featuring a lightweight spaceframe chassis with FIA-compliant safety cell and crash structure, and high-downforce composite bodywork, complete with adjustable rear wing and diffuser, the pure race-bred Radical Rapture corners with phenomenal prowess. 

“If you want physics-defying performance that you can exploit on public roads, it begins to feel like a bit of a steal.” Felix Page, Autocar
