In case Radical’s range of cars wasn’t extreme enough, the Brit sports car company is about to launch a new range-topper powered by an in-house-developed 360bhp V8 engine.

Priced at £50,480 plus VAT, the road-legal 170mph SR8 will be aimed squarely at the core Radical market of racing, track days and extreme road use when sales kick off in January.

Although unlikely to improve on the sub-4.0sec 0-60mph dash of the SR4 (right), Radical says the 100-150mph figure will be where the SR8 makes its mark. The company says that with a little tweaking the V8 engine will also slot into a Lotus Elise, and is selling the lump for £16k plus VAT.
