Street-Legal Radical Rapture Teased For Goodwood Debut



Radical is gearing up to introduce their all-new Rapture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Set to be unveiled on July 4th, the Rapture is a street-legal sports car that promises to bring the “thrill of real downforce from the race track to the road.”

The company is keeping details under wraps, but hinted the model will have “phenomenal performance” and be their “most focused” street-legal sports car. The company went on to say the Rapture will offer a “pure and unapologetic attack on the senses” as it will benefit from the company’s latest innovations in powertrain, aerodynamics and electronics technology.

While the company was coy on details, the teaser image reveals the Rapture will have a ventilated rear fascia with circular taillights. We can also see a roll bar and a prominent rear wing.  Little else is known about the car, but it appears to follow in the footsteps of the SR8 and RXC Spyder.

Following the model’s unveiling on Thursday, the Rapture will make its inaugural run up the hill at Goodwood.

Radical isn’t exactly a household name, but this won’t be their first street-legal model. That honor went to the SR3 SL which was introduced in 2011.

More recently, the company offered the RXC GT road car. It featured a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with outputs of 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) and 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS). The engine was connected to a six-speed paddle shift transmission that sent power to the rear wheels. This setup enabled the model to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h).
