Radical RXC Now Street-Legal in the US

Fancy taking this for a spin around the block? You’ll first need around $200k.

If you’ve always wanted to own a racecar for the road, then the Radical RXC represents the ultimate incarnation. Previously it wasn’t certified for the US, but the British manufacturer has just revealed that the RXC and RXC Turbo passed “the required tests for road registration in California.” Working closely with RXC owner Jeffrey Cheng, who can be seen in the video driving his tangerine model to a Cars and Coffee meet, the low-volume sports car is now road-worthy.

Orders for the new RXC are now being taken, but registrations will initially be undertaken on a case-by-case basis as Radical works towards getting type-approval across the country.

A US-delivered RXC starts from $171,280 with options quickly bumping that up to beyond the $200k mark. A 25 percent down payment is also required upon placing an order. For that you get a mini racecar packing a 460-hp 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 good for a 2.6-second 0-60 mph time and a 185 mph top speed.
