Currently reading: Salon Prive 2013: Radical to build 50 RXC lightweights a year
Radical says Peugeot's Le Mans race car inspired closed-cockpit, road-legal RXC

Radical says it has the capacity to produce up to 50 of its new RXC cars per year. The company already produces 40 SR3 SL units annually.

The 380bhp, 900kg Radical RXC is on display at Salon Prive, and the firm's Roger Green says that despite only launching earlier this year at London's Motorexpo, the first customers have already received their cars. He says the move to an enclosed cockpit on the RXC was motivated by market expansion.

"We did it because it was something we wanted to do. The initial concept came four years ago from looking at the Peugeot Le Mans car, and thinking it would be great to have something you can drive every day. It allows us to go into more markets and into more countries."

Radical current has orders for the RXC in France, Thailand and Germany. The RXC is powered by a 3.7-litre V6 engine, is capable of 175mph and 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds.

The firm will offer several interior trim upgrades to improve day to day usability in the future.
