Radical Factory VIP's Visit - Test Drive an RXC on Race Weekend!

We are thrilled to announce that VIPs, race experts and factory-trained professionals from the Radical factory in England will be here for the official US unveiling of the Radical RXC and test drives of the hot new performance car at November's Club Race weekend. Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to test the performance of the all-new Radical RXC on the track, and get driving advice from expert race professionals in the field. Joining us for next weekend's Club Radical Race are Phil Abbott, Co-Founder of Radical Sportscars and Technical & Racing Director; Nick Dove, Commercial Director; Christian Droop, Chairman; Paul Dujon, Export/Sales Coordinator/Photographer; Jamie Robinson, Radical Sales; and Roger Green, Marketing Manager. To lend support during the races, technicians James Abbott, Development Driver; George Tillson-Smith and Dan King, Senior Technicians, will also be on-hand for the festivities. Make your plans today to be here for November's exciting race weekend and say hello to the experts from the Radical factory!

Watch a video interview by Generation High Output with our own Simon Shepard, Director of Radical West, on the new RXC!

The Radical RXC is making a huge splash in the US. Last week the second RXC in the country was on exhibit at the Spring Mountain booth at SEMA in Las Vegas, generating national media attention from motorsports aficonados. Charter Member Jeffrey Cheng purchased the first RXC in the country and has tested it on the track. Jeffrey reports, "The RXC coupe has definitely lived up to my lofty expectations! ... Its pure bred race car heritage is evident in every aspect of its demeanor. ... Leave it to Radical to make something so ummmm ... radical!! ... It's legitimately the closest thing to a race car that will likely ever be driven on the street. Ferrari may claim that their Stradale and Scuderia are track inspired street cars but compared to the RXC they might as well be four door sedans! " The RXC is projected to be a huge hit...hence the slogan 'Resistance is Futile.'

Powered by a new Ford Mustang V6, its 1,800 pound curb weight allows blistering performance. The 3.7L Ford Duratec 37 Ti-VCT engine produces 380hp, accelerating 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 175mph. The car utilizes its own throttle bodies, exhaust and standalone ECU.

To set up a test drive of the Radical RXC on Friday or Saturday, November 22-23, please contact Simon Shepard via email simon@racespringmountain.com, or by phone 714-369-3361.
