Radical to launch Project 25 track car


aria-label="Radical Project 25 new"

Project 25 will be the manifestation of Radical’s track car experience in one exceptional flagship.

Following first details last year, Radical has revealed new images of a forthcoming flagship track-only model called the ‘Project 25’ that’ll be based on its RXC model line. Set to launch later this year, it’ll be limited to just 25 units and will enter its production run in late 2023.

Powering the Project 25 will be one of the most powerful engines to ever motivate a Radical, with a proposed 625kW to be delivered from a new twin-turbocharged V6 engine. This engine, like others in its RXC lineup, is Ford’s 3.5-litre Ecoboost unit that’s currently used in the F-150 Raptor and GT, giving it the bones to handle Radical’s proposed peak power figures. As it stands Radical’s current flagship model – the RXC600R – produces 478kW.

There are no other details on the powertrain available, but judging by the 600R’s specification, we expect power to be driven through a transversely-mounted six-speed transmission to the rear wheels.

It will also feature a closed cockpit with a two seater configuration, built from a steel space frame-style chassis clothed in either a fibreglass or carbonfibre skin. Suspension is generally in-board in these flagship Radical models, however being a new limited-run flagship there might be a surprise or two coming in its chassis and braking hardware.

Prices are still to be announced, but with production limited to just 25 units we suspect it’ll be priced like a special edition flagship, one capable of keeping up with even more expensive machinery at the track.
