Radical Sportscars is a British manufacturer and constructor of racing cars. The company was founded in January 1997 by amateur drivers and engineers Mick Hyde and Phil Abbott, who built open-cockpit sportscars which could be registered for road use and run on a track without modification. Although most of Radical's sportscars are road legal, they also build some purpose-built racing cars, such as the SR9 Le Mans prototype. Based on the SR3, the SR8 is a more extreme version intended for track use but can be registered for the road. The SR8 also features the largest engine Radical has ever put in their cars, with the 2600 cc RPE RPA V8 constructed by combining elements of Suzuki inline-4s, and producing 363 bhp 271 kW A further variant, known as the SR8LM, increases the engine to 2800 cc and brings power output to 455 hp (339 kW). In August 2009 Michael Vergers, driving an SR8LM, set a new lap record (6 minutes, 48 seconds) for a road legal production car at the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit. The previous record (6 minutes, 55 seconds) was also set by Vergers, in 2005 at the wheel of a Radical SR8.
