Le Mans-Style Radical RXC Arrives in Frankfurt [Photo Gallery]
Most people who have heard of the model think of it as the annoying track-ready car that shouldn't be street legal, yet it is, and can smash the record of just about any circuit it gets driven on.
With an exterior design inspired by a Le Mans LMP racing car, the RXC is probably the only road vehicle that generates an amount of downforce that equals its own mass at high speeds.
It has a bespoke Intrax Racing Suspension of the push rod variety with four-way adjustment, GT3-style camber angle and geometry adjustment, Corbeau FIA-compliant bucket seats with six-point harnesses and weighs just 900 kilograms (1984 pounds).
With the help of a 3.7-liter V6 with 380 hp, sourced from a Ford Mustang, it can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds and can reach a drag-enforced top speed of 281 km/h (175 mph). Yet, it also sports air-conditioning, a multi-function fully adjustable steering wheel, power steering and electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors.
