You don't call your cars Radical unless you offer something innovative and unique, and that was exactly the philosophy of company founders Mick Hyde and Phil Abbott 17 years ago. They weren't about to build ‘just another sports car', their approach was revolutionary and together they created a whole new niche in the world of motorsport.The iconic Clubsport model established the company in 1997 and is still raced with enthusiasm all around the world. Its success was instantaneous and the full grids soon led to developments, the Prosport added wings, more power and wider slicks, but the team at Radical were never going to rest on their laurels. In 2002, they launched the SR3, a genuine two-seater, road-legal track car, that wowed both the press and track drivers all over the world. It has become Radical's most popular model to date and was soon followed by the compact SR4, a small, light and practical two-seater that proved to be the perfect successor to the original Clubsport. Presented here is an immaculate 2006 Radical SR3. Although dated 06, the car has recently had a very detailed and excellent quality rebuild and has spent most of its life in storage so has seen very little use. It's powered by a sealed RPE engine/gearbox with 1 hour running on the unit (1500 Injection). This slick racer also has an upgraded K8 clutch with same running time as above. This SR3 also enjoys a brand new late spec exhaust, fuel pump, master cylinders, fresh bearings all round, all suspension and brakes serviced and replaced and an ATL Bag type fuel tank fitted. As well as being freshly rebuilt, it has also been upgraded with a few extras such as the much improved 24V starting system and hot climate cooling kit with bigger radiator. The car also has new driver and passenger belts, as well as a brand new fire system and there is a small spares package which will be included with the car. This car was bought new in Dubai for use at the Autodrome but has since only been used for a few test days before shipping to the UK. Described to us as 'on the button' what an attractive proposition for the adrenaline junkies out there.
