So how does it really feel when driving the 911 GT3 RS in its natural habitat – the racetrack? “It’s a racecar driver’s dream come true,” says Porsche test driver Jörg Bergmeister. “All this makes it the best-handling 911 road car ever on a racetrack. It’s so much fun, especially in the high-speed corners – the performance is just amazing.” It’s easy to get a sense of just how much went into developing the 911 GT3 RS when listening to Andreas Preuninger, Director GT Model Line at Porsche, talking about the car. “I don’t remember any project where we spent more days and nights – countless hours – inside the wind tunnel,” he explains, adding that the end result proves that the long hours were worth it. “It offers such a rewarding driving experience on the track. It puts a smile on my face, and on all of the development drivers’ too, every time we drive it.” Packing 40kg more downforce, the 911 GT3 RS also hits a new milestone in Porsche road car aerodynamics, with its perfect aero balance equalling a set-up that’s suitable for every condition on the racetrack. “With over 1,500 simulations and 250 hours spent in the wind tunnel, we’ve been able to achieve a new level of performance. We doubled the downforce compared to its predecessor,” explains Matias Roll, aerodynamics engineer at Porsche. This radical change is due in part to new packaging in the form of an S-Duct front with single-cooler concept that ensures improved downforce and brake-cooling aerodynamics – a concept that is also used in uncompromising Porsche racecars such as the 911 GT3 R. Tackling the challenge of headwinds head-on, the 911 GT3 RS was designed to use air flow optimally with every component. For example, a new passage for the air behind the front wheels was designed to optimise venting and air flow, with roof fins continuing the work on top.
Say hello to the latest member of the Porsche Sportmade family – the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. An athlete both on and off the track, this all-new aerodynamic wonder follows its 2013 predecessor – the 911 GT3 RS (Type 991 II) – and is presented in a more radical form than ever before, thanks to its lightweight construction and incredible attention to detail. Never before has Porsche put such levels of effort into the development of one of its Porsche GT sportscars.
The 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS are cars that have both been developed to make every second count, but that RS suffix – standing for ‘Rennsport’ or ‘racing’ – signals the intentions of the 911 GT3 RS from the moment you see it written along its flanks. It takes a mere glance to recognise the wider body and huge rear wing – which rises even above the roofline of the car. An imposing, sporty look. Designed to push things harder and for longer when you are on the track, with 15PS more available to you, and a wealth of aerodynamic detailing, it all adds up to triple the downforce when compared to the 911 GT3. This is a serious track day vehicle. No compromises have been made.
On the motorsport-orientated steering wheel, the four integrated mode switches offer more diverse setting options, from Drive Mode and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) to Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and Traction Control (TC-ESC). The results? Heightened interactive connection between driver and car. At no extra cost, the Clubsport package comes as standard, comprising a steel roll cage – available in Black or iconic Guards Red – and a six-point racing harness for driver safety.The carbon story continues inside, where the roll cage is finished in a carbon-weave (satin) that offers style and race protection all in one. The final flourishes can be seen in lightweight PDK gearshift paddles that are made of magnesium, a dashboard upper section covered with black Race-Tex and more interior elements dressed in the carbon weave finish (satin). You’ll also spot the Weissach motif itself on the passenger side and headrests in the form of the Weissach RS logo. All-in-all, this is a Porsche sportscar that is a compelling exercise in form follows function.
Lighter than before and featuring increased downforce, the performance of the new 911 GT3 RS has been raised to levels which make it an aerodynamic wonder Wherever you go, it goes. The street-legal 911 GT3 RS is as happy on the road as the racetrack. Alongside its phenomenal performance, overall drivability has been improved, too. The electronic damping control system actively and continuously adjusts based on current road conditions and driving style. At low speeds, this system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front for increased agility, especially through bends. At high speeds, the rear wheels are steered in the same direction as the front for optimal stability – perfect for when it comes to overtaking on the racetrack. With this kind of all-round performance, the 911 GT3 RS proves itself to be an exceptionally versatile sportscar. The 911 GT3 RS quickens the pulse like very little else can. You are catapulted by the 4.0-litre, high-revving, naturally aspirated 525PS engine from 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds. With up to 465Nm of torque available to you, you’ll barely have time to draw breath as you make extraordinarily rapid progress through the gears. Top speed is a dizzying 296km/h. Its lightweight stainless steel sports exhaust system ensures a dramatic, unfiltered sound experience up to a maximum of 9,000rpm. With 860kg of downforce at 285km/h – a speed reached on the Nürburgring’s Döttinger straight – coupled with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) seven-speed automatic gearbox, acceleration and grip is at levels that constantly enthral and entertain.The two-piece rear section – made from a fixed main blade and a moveable second element of the flap – marks the first time in Porsche road car history where a vehicle includes a high-performance wing which is also fully active and infinitely adjustable. Press the DRS button, and the flaps are turned to the low downforce position for the lowest drag. On the underside of the front of the car, another flap can be rotated by over 80 degrees in just 0.3 seconds to achieve the maximum downforce configuration. The extra wide-bodied rear coupled with the active system in the front reduces drag by almost 30 per cent.
Addition by subtraction – the 911 GT3 RS has truly cracked the formula. Despite the significantly expanded equipment (like the wider wheels and body), its unladen weight checks in at only 1,450kg. Lightweight materials are used all over the car, with carbon fibre spanning the roof, front lid, bumpers, rear wing, suspension and, for the first time, the doors, shaving off almost 5kg. Ultra-thin, light glass is further used in the car. This not only optimises vehicle weight, but also improves interior acoustics by minimising external noise. On the inside, lightweight carpets and bucket seats were fitted alongside an extensive use of microfibre cloth. Speaking of the impressive construction inside and out, Andreas Preuninger says, “We looked at every component of the car. It’s our passion to make our cars as lightweight as possible.”
Available as an option, the Weissach package – named after the legendary Porsche development centre – makes every gram in the 911 GT3 RS count – reducing the overall weight by almost 15kg. With this option, the front lid, roof, top half of the exterior mirror and part of the rear wing sport a carbon weave finish (high-gloss), emphasising its motorsport personality. The chassis’ stabilisers on the front and rear axles, coupling rods on the rear side and CFRP shear panel also provide optimum weight savings for those determined to do all they can to help shave time off their personal best.Proving that comfort and racing exhilaration can go hand-in-hand, climbing aboard reveals sporty credentials worthy of the most elite athlete. The full bucket seats are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with a carbon-weave finish and black leather cover. GT3 RS lettering is embroidered on the headrests, while the seat centre sections come in black perforated Race-Tex with contrasting underlay. Adaptive, 18-way electric sports seats are available as an option, and the interiors can be furnished with advanced leather/Race-Tex features and contrasting Guards Red or GT Silver colours on request.
A further development of the RXC Turbo 500 would come at the next year’s 2016 Geneva Motor show in the form of the RXC Turbo 500R. The 500R features new weight-saving carbon fibre techniques that Radical claims cuts 50 kg from the original 500 model, as well as larger brakes paired to a new ABS system. The 3.5 L EcoBoost engine in 500R tune now produces 600 hp (608 PS; 447 kW) @ 6,700 rpm and 465 lb⋅ft (630 N⋅m) @ 4,200 rpm–6,200 rpm. The RXC 500R was produced on both track-only and road-legal Dunlop Tires.
The RXC’s chassis is a carbon tubular steel space frame with fibreglass body panels. Many RXC models are available with an optional upgrade that incorporates more carbon-fibre body panels in place of fibreglass for additional weight savings.The RXC uses cast aluminum wheels of 17″ diameter for the RXC GT and 18″ for other current production models. Its disc brakes are sized at 350 mm (13.8 in) front and 310 mm (12.2 in) rear for the RXC GT, 360 mm (14.2 in) front and 330 mm (13.0 in) rear for the RXC Spyder and RXC Turbo 600R, and 390 mm (15.4 in) front and 360 mm (14.2 in) rear for the RXC GT3.
The Radical RXC is a line of track-only race cars and street-legal road cars built by British manufacturer Radical Sportscars. The first street-legal RXC was unveiled in January 2013 at the Autosport International auto show, and it has since been offered in many different engine and racing configurations.
The RXC Turbo was unveiled at the 2014 Autosport International show, one year after the reveal of the original RXC. The RXC Turbo adds a new powerplant to the RXC lineup in the form of Ford’s 3.5 L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine, producing 448 hp (454 PS; 334 kW) @ 5,500 rpm and 500 lb⋅ft (678 N⋅m) @ 3,500 rpm. The RXC Turbo is also available with additional levels of sound deadening equipment in the interior to eliminate NVH at the cost of weight savings. In January 2015’s Autosport International show, Radical revealed its new track-only model, the RXC Spyder. Intended to replace the Radical SR8 RX as the company’s flagship track car, the RXC Spyder features an open cockpit and significant aerodynamic additions over previous RXC models. The RXC Spyder was initially offered with only the 3.0 L RPE RPX-V8 engine from the RXC V8, producing 440 hp (328 kW; 446 PS) @ 9,100 rpm and 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) @ 7,500 rpm. In 2016 after the release of the RXC Turbo 500R, the RXC Spyder became available with the 500R’s 3.5 L twin-turbo EcoBoost engine, producing 600 hp (608 PS; 447 kW) @ 6,700 rpm and 465 lb⋅ft (630 N⋅m) @ 4,200 rpm–6,200 rpm. Similarly, after the release of the RXC Turbo 600R in 2017, the RXC Spyder became available with the 600R’s further upgraded 3.5 L twin-turbo EcoBoost engine, producing 650 hp (659 PS; 485 kW). The original RXC launched in 2013 for the 2014 model year in two street-legal forms: the RXC V6 and the optional upgraded RXC V8. The standard V6, a modified version of the 3.7 L Ford Duratec 37 Cyclone, produces 350 hp (261 kW; 355 PS) @ 6,750 rpm and 320 lb⋅ft (434 N⋅m) @ 4,250 rpm. The V8 came in two engine configurations, a 2.7 L and a 3.0 L, both in-house designs based on the inline-four engine used in the Suzuki Hayabusa. The 2.7 L produces 430 hp (321 kW; 436 PS) @ 9,500 rpm and 260 lb⋅ft (353 N⋅m) @ 7,200 rpm, while the 3.0 L produces 480 hp (358 kW; 487 PS) @ 9,100 rpm and 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) @ 7,500 rpm. The RXC was based on the design of the previous Radical SR9 Le Mans prototype, and features a body made out of mostly carbon fibre composites. Both engines are mated to 7-speed semi-automatic transmission manuf
actured by Quaife, mounted transversely and driving the rear wheels. Standard features inside the RXC include air conditioning, power steering, heated windscreen and mirrors, and a multi-function adjustable steering wheel.
The Radical RXC’s powertrain has consisted of four different engines over its many models, although current RXCs now use Ford’s EcoBoost turbocharged V6 exclusively in many different tunes. The engines are mid-rear mounted and drive the rear wheels.In 2017, the RXC Turbo was renamed the ‘RXC GT’. It is now available with two optional tunes of the EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine, producing 400 hp (406 PS; 298 kW) in standard configuration, with the optional 650 hp (659 PS; 485 kW) tune shared by the contemporary RXC Spyder and RXC Turbo 600R.At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Radical introduced a higher-performance version of the existing turbo road car, the RXC Turbo 500. All internals and externals of the car are carried over from the original Turbo, with the exception of the new uptuned 3.5 L EcoBoost engine. The RXC Turbo 500’s EcoBoost V6 now produces 530 hp (537 PS; 395 kW) @ 6,100 rpm and 481 lb⋅ft (652 N⋅m) @ 5,000 rpm.
Also introduced in 2016 was the Radical RXC GT3, a modified version of the RXC Turbo homologated to FIA GT3 standards. Homologation was achieved with the RXC Turbo’s 3.5 L EcoBoost engine, detuned to produce around 500 hp (507 PS; 373 kW) depending on individual championship rules, and a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission. Other differences from the RXC Turbo road car include a redesigned splitter, front canards, a modified rear wing and larger brake rotors and callipers.
At the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Radical made a surprise appearance with the new RXC Turbo 600R model. The 600R is designed and sold as a track-only racecar, although Radical produced a one-off road-legal car that they premiered at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The RXC Turbo 600R features the same 3.5 L EcoBoost engine from prior Turbo models, now tuned to produce 650 hp (659 PS; 485 kW) paired to a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission. The RXC began production with a 7-speed semi-automatic transmission manufactured by Quaife, but as of 2017 the 7-speed has been phased out in favor of a 6-speed semi-automatic also manufactured by Quaife specifically for the RXC. This stunning near-new car is a single owner with low mileage at 1,032 miles and 12.59 loaded hours. The base color of this car is white with black highlights covered with a livery.

To be Radical you have to offer something innovative and unique, both values that have always been at the core of our philosophy since our inception in 1997.John Hennessey’s eponymously named performance group is obsessed with power and speed, evidenced by shoehorning as much oomph as it can into production cars from other manufacturers. Then Hennessey built his own supercar in 2014, powered by a 7.0-liter twin-turbo GM V-8 packing 1,244 hp and 1,287 ft lbs of torque. The Venom reached 270.4 mph at the Kennedy Space Center’s 3.2-mile landing strip, but only in one direction. Since both directions are required for a record-holding run, in addition to a production volume of 30 or more cars (only 13 Venoms have been sold), the Hennessey doesn’t qualify for official record books. But still, the beast has surpassed 270 mph, and that’s impressive as hell.In October of 2020, SSC North America’s founder Jerod Shelby took his latest hypercar to a Nevada desert and hammered out a run that was touted to have averaged 316.11 mph. The internet, however, was skeptical, and shredded that session’s data in short order, negating it. In January of 2021, Shelby decamped to proving grounds at Kennedy Space Center for a redux, bringing ample recording devices and external groups to monitor. That trial resulted in a 279.2 mph speed on a northbound run, followed by the car reaching 286.1 mph on a southbound pass. Those (certified) results average to 282.9 mph, which is more than enough to notch the SSC Tuatara above the Koenigsegg Agera RS on this list.The first production vehicle to crack 200 mph was the Ferrari F40. The year was 1987; immediately after that Italian stallion’s speedometer registered 201, the race to enter the 300 mph club began. In 2019, amid fervent competition between Koenigsegg, Hennessey and Bugatti, the Chiron Super Sport bested the others by a horseshoed nose, achieving a staggering 304.7 mph. In early 2020, a bevy of new hypercars was announced—several promising at least 300 mph. Then, in 2021, SSC North America turned a claim into reality, cementing the SSC Tuatara’s spot at number two—at least for now. The second hypercar from the Swedish automotive wizards to grace our list is referred to as a “mega GT” by founder Christian von Koenigsegg. That’s because it’s packing 1,700 hp, 2,581 ft lbs of torque and has four seats, each of which was designed to hold an actual human. (Thoughtfully, there’s room for the storage of one carry-on suitcase per passenger.) The sprint to 60 mph is over in 1.9 seconds—faster than you can read this sentence. This limited-edition coupe from Aston Martin was capped at 77 units, though after an accident in Asia, only 76 examples remain. Beneath the long hood lies a 7.3-liter V-12 from Cosworth, good for 750 hp and 553 ft lbs of twist. That propels the aluminum-and-carbon-fiber chassis from a dead stop to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. A series of tests by Aston showed that its steed was capable of 220 mph back in 2009.
With twice the power of a Formula 1 car, the ability to hit 60 mph in under two seconds and a $2.4 million sticker price, the new Rimac Nevera should intimidate even an experienced hypercar owner. Yet the automaker’s 33-year-old founder, Mate Rimac, intended his masterpiece to be a highly usable, no-fuss grand tourer. So which is it—Hyde or Jekyll? The answer from behind the wheel, amazingly, is both.
The CCXR uses the same 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8 mill as the CCX, but the Swedish company modded the power plant to run on E85 race gas, which shot the power from 795 hp up into the four-figure range—1,004 hp to be exact. Given the CCXR’s upgraded aerodynamics package and engine, it would be interesting to see how it performs in a proper top-speed run that’s in a straight line and not on a circular track (which is how the Koenigsegg CCR ran).Subscribe to RR1 Live+ for exclusive virtual events all year long (at least 1 per month), conversations with Robb Report editors, special perks, and more.Just about any Bugatti will make the cut among the world’s fastest production cars, if simply because the quad-turbo W-16 engine, first pioneered by the Veyron, established an entirely new era of four-figure horsepower output back in 2005. The Veyron managed a 253 mph top speed then and Bugatti consistently upped that number through 2019, when the Chiron Super Sport 300+ managed a 304.7 mph single-direction run. But the Veyron, Chiron, Bolide and others were all coupes—now Bugatti plans to take a new world record home to Molsheim with the Mistral roadster, which features a final application of the quad-turbo W-16 before the marque partnered with Rimac and the resultant hybridization and electrification of future models. More importantly, the Mistral required significant revisions to Bugatti’s established design language to create sufficient downforce and engine cooling to allow for an incredible top speed of 261 mph. And that’s a figure that the Mistral will somehow achieve with the roof off.
Is Radical RXC GT road legal?
The Radical RXC is a line of track-only race cars and street-legal road cars built by British manufacturer Radical Sportscars. The first street-legal RXC was unveiled in January 2013 at the Autosport International auto show, and it has since been offered in many different engine and racing configurations.
The 1,914 hp Nevera is currently the world’s fastest-accelerating production car. And at full steam, the Nevera is far from the stereotype of a silent EV, with 1.4 megawatts actually screaming through the car. The noise adds to the drama, as much psychological as physical, in a way no other road car can match, making for a dangerously charismatic split personality worth every one of its seven figures.
How much does a radical track car cost?
For the SR1 Generation 2 package prices start at £40,000 + VAT, for the Generation 1 package from £27,500 + VAT. The third package is aimed at those that would like to try the experience before buying a Radical SR1 sportscar.
SSC North America’s 2007 Ultimate Aero TT has a Guinness Book of Records–verified top speed of 256.18 mph. That record has since been broken by others, and now belongs to its successor, the SSC Tuatara. But that doesn’t take anything away from this fully carbon-fiber behemoth. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged Corvette C5R V-8 that’s tuned to produce more than 1,100 hp and 1,094 ft lbs of torque. The rip to 60 mph is 2.7 seconds, and the task of stopping the land missile is aided by twin air brakes that pop up from the rear wings. At Monterey Car Week, in August of 2022, Czinger then revealed a smoother and longer aerodynamic body for the 21C, dubbed the V Max, which reduces drag while using the same twin-turbocharged 2.88-liter V-8 paired with dual electric motors. The combination delivers a total of 1,250 hp to all four wheels. With a low dry weight of 2,756 pounds, Czinger claims the V Max should be able to sprint to 60 miles per hour in under 1.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 253 mph. Porsche did some light sandbagging when it claimed the top speed on its 918 model was 214 mph. In 2018, one 918 Spyder was recorded clocking 218.4 mph. Still the fastest production car the Stuttgart marque has produced, it is equipped with a hybrid power train that features a naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V-8, good for 599 hp, and twin electric motors that contribute another 282 hp, bringing the sum to 875 hp and a stupendous 944 ft lbs of torque.
The “BC” in the moniker of this entry is an homage to Benny Caiola, an Italian-born businessman who became a New York real estate titan. Caiola bought the first Zonda off Horatio Pagani himself, subsequently becoming a dear friend. This iteration of the open-top Huayra launched in 2019, after Pagani left the Geneva International Motor Show with five unsolicited deposits for a more aggressive version of the Huayra Roadster. The resulting machine features a new Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V-12, tweaked to be about seven percent more powerful than the coupe version of the BC. The 791 hp output should be more than ample to rocket the $3.5 million open-top hypercar to 240 mph.Here’s yet another Bugatti, this one built back in 2010 for the sole purpose of securing the accolade of fastest production car ever built. And the Veyron Super Sport achieved it, per Guinness. From the same W-16 power plant, engineers managed to eke out an additional 180 hp, bringing the grand total to 1,184 hp. To unlock the potential for max speed, you’ll need a second key that’ll give unfettered access to the engine.
The rear-wheel-drive Speedtail employs a hybrid system good for 1,035 hp, and its sleek shape and lightweight carbon-fiber construction is tailor-made for its top speed of 250 mph. McLaren claims it’ll take only 12.8 seconds to go from a dead stop to 186 mph, which is an eye-watering stat.
The successor to the game-changing Zonda, the Huayra comes from Italian speed master Horacio Pagani and is named after Huayra-tata, a Quechua wind god—fitting, considering the 720 hp coming from a twin-turbocharged Mercedes-AMG V-12. A seven-speed single-clutch gearbox puts down the power while delivering chunky, whiplash-inducing shifts, allowing you to scream from zero to 60 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds.
American hypercar start-up Czinger Vehicles aims to completely revolutionize the automotive industry by introducing the sustainable use of 3-D-printing and AI-assisted designs in mass production. Along the way to mainstream adoption, Czinger plans to produce world-beating hypercars starting with the 21C, a unique 1+1 that already set lap records at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and Circuit of the Americas on road-legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R tires.
How much is the radical RXC gt3?
$179,000 This thing ventures deep into “uncomfortably capable” territory, best for a serious driver with extensive experience. It’s also had over $20,000 of recent work, a bill better fit for a full racing team than one brave owner. But that—along with the $179,000 buy-it-now figure—is the price of a true race car for the road.
Gordon Murray served as designer of the McLaren F1, which set new standards for performance with a world-beating top-speed run of 240.1 mph in 1998. This was thanks to the BMW-sourced V-12 and advanced-for-the-time carbon-fiber construction. More recently, Murray founded his own eponymous marque and penned the svelte T.50 using the same recipe of a lightweight body and a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder mill. This time around, the engine was built by Cosworth to displace 4.0 liters and produce 654 hp and 344 ft lbs of torque on the way to a screaming redline of 12,100 rpm. Murray claims the T.50 can hit a top speed of 230 mph, a bit shy of the F1’s original record. But then the T.50 has a lower-displacement power plant, a curb weight of only 2,174 pounds and significant improvements in downforce made possible by a 15.7-inch fan that effectively sucks the chassis toward the ground.Elon Musk launched Tesla with a coupe, so this electric Roadster is a fitting return to his roots. Only he’s turned everything up to 11. Tesla claims its 200 kwh battery pack will provide up to 620 miles of range, while a trio of motors will propel the $200,000-plus four-seat supercar to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds. With that quickness, the quarter-mile is in your rearview in just 8.8 seconds.
Hennessey Performance Engineering’s Venom F5 picks up the baton from its older sibling and rockets away. A 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-8 pumps out 1,817 hp and 1,193 ft lbs of twist, which propels the 2,950-pound coupe to 60 mph in under two seconds. And in case you were wondering, its name is an homage to the F5 category of tornados, the most intense level possible on the Fujita scale.
As the “Ultimae” moniker denotes, Lamborghini’s latest Aventador represents the pinnacle performance variant of an impressive supercar chassis that first debuted back in 2011. The original’s naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 has transformed over the years, however, and now produces up to 769 hp and 531 ft lbs of torque—as compared to the 690 hp and 509 ft lbs of torque from the LP 700-4 of 2011. With a more subtle exterior (at least for Lamborghini) that eschews much of the aggressive aerodynamics seen on the more track-focused SVJ, the Ultimae also retains all-wheel drive and an incredibly outdated single-clutch automated seven-speed transmission. That said, it still manages a zero-to-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds on the way to a 221 mph top speed. The supercapacitor-hybrid Sian pumps out more power overall and Lamborghini has announced further plans to transition quickly toward fully electric supercars, but the Ultimae will reign as the most powerful, purely internal-combustion Aventador ever built. This year, the next generation of Raging Bulls should debut with an all-new V-12 complemented by electric motors.
Steve Saleen set out to build a Bugatti Veyron challenger, and this street-legal race car was the result. One of the first American mid-engined performance machines ever crafted, the Saleen S7 was 100 percent hand-built. A heavily-tweaked 7.0-liter twin-turbo Ford 351 Windsor Small Block gets bored and stroked, bestowing the handsome coupe with 750 hp.
Yet a relatively new name, innovative Czinger Vehicles, and long-standing icon Gordon Murray have both gained momentum. And of course Bugatti is busy being, well, Bugatti. So, we’re updating our list of the fastest cars in the world and expanding it to show more wheeled lightning. (Three quick editor’s notes: our sole criterion is top speed, our floor for consideration is at least 218 mph and unproven manufacturer claims are denoted.)In November of 2017, a Koenigsegg Agera RS, running E85 fuel (meaning it was getting 1,360 hp), was driven by a factory driver to a two-way average speed of 277.8 mph on an 11-mile strip of closed road in Nevada. The car, owned by a customer who suggested the feat, actually hit 284.5 mph during the record attempt, which is staggering. At the time, it also nabbed the fastest zero-to-250 mph-to-zero metric (33.2 seconds), the highest average speed during the flying kilometer (268 mph) and for the flying mile on a public road (276.3 mph). The top spot for the world’s fastest supercar goes to Bugatti. In 2019, pilot Andy Wallace railed a tweaked-version of the 1,600 hp, 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged Chiron Super Sport around the Ehra-Lessien track. The modifications included lengthening the body by 10 inches, lowering it and giving it a new rear aero kit, as well as a new exhaust setup. The real heroes, however, were the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that were x-rayed before fitment to ensure perfect structural integrity. The iconic three-seater from McLaren was a revolutionary model from the brilliant mind of designer Gordon Murray. Built in 1993, it was the first carbon-fiber-bodied production car ever built, and featured a 6.1-liter V-12 from BMW that was good for 618 hp and 479 ft lbs of torque. For the then-expensive, now-bargain price of £500,000, you were rewarded with blistering speed: zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and zero to 100 mph required just 6.3 seconds. These are simply mental performance figures, especially when you factor in that the engine is naturally aspirated. It officially set the world speed record back in 1998, and the 240.1 mph run remained top dog until 2005, when the Koenigsegg CCR bested it by all of 1 mph.
Until the promised Jesko Absolut model achieves its projected top speed of more than 310 mph, please draw your attention to the standard-issue Jesko, which is anything but a standard supercar. The Swedish manufacturer’s 5.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine is mated to a novel Light Speed gearbox that can handle its prodigious output, which can reach 1,600 hp when running on E85 biofuel. Even more remarkable about the Jesko are its aerodynamics, which in the (even more) limited production Jesko Attack model produce more than 3,000 pounds of downforce. Although all 125 examples of the Jesko are currently sold out, we anticipate the standard model should be able to achieve (and likely exceed) Christian von Koenigsegg’s current projected top speed for it, which is 278 mph.
When engineers from Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing put their heads together, the world benefits. The Valkyrie, or AM-RB 001 as it was known in development, is a fantastically wild-looking hypercar. Behind your seat, a 6.5-liter Cosworth V-12 churns out 1,160 hp, more than enough to compress your innards during the 2.3 seconds it takes to hammer to 60 mph.Inspired by the Molsheim manufacturer’s Vision Le Mans concept, Bugatti’s Bolide combines its fantastical X-themed design language with the brand’s unprecedented W-16 power plant to yield an estimated top speed in excess of 311 mph. Bolstered by a lightweight monocoque incorporating titanium and carbon fiber, the Bolide presents a sci-fi aesthetic that complements what are hyped to be otherworldly performance figures. Those specs are promised to include a zero-to-60 mph time of less than 2 seconds. For those people, there is the Radical RXC GT3. With a wet weight of 2650 lbs and somewhere around 700 hp, “Radical” is an apt description. Sixty arrives in 2.7 seconds, lateral cornering forces reach 2.1 Gs, and massive racing brakes ensure that stopping is just as violent. This thing ventures deep into “uncomfortably capable” territory, best for a serious driver with extensive experience. It’s also had over $20,000 of recent work, a bill better fit for a full racing team than one brave owner. But that—along with the $179,000 buy-it-now figure—is the price of a true race car for the road. You’ve likely heard the hopelessly uncreative “race car for the road” moniker used to describe a litany of stiff, performance-oriented road cars. It’s the kind of thing you’d rather tell your friends than actually live, what with the noise, vibration, harshness, and impracticality of a true race car. Yet if that’s what you’re actually after, ignore the Porsche 911 GT3 and skip right to the Radical RXC GT3.

If you need help with your listing, have questions about using the site or if you are looking for something not listed, then get in touch as we are here to help…Last, I like that the FR16’s barrel features a 1:7 twist rate. Many budget AR-15s feature a 1:9 twist rate, which typically shoots light bullets well but has problems stabilizing heavy bullets…
I don’t really see a need to change it, but of course, if you want to, you can easily upgrade it with one of any number of high-quality AR triggers that are currently available…
How much does a radical RXC cost?
Radical tells us that the first registrations are being undertaken on a case-by-case basis, but that it is working on getting type-approval for sale across the United States. Interested customers can expect to pay a minimum base price of $171,280 for a US-delivered RXC, but of course that’s just the starting point.
I don’t think there’s any reason why you need to change out the A2 flash hider that comes on the FR16 with another muzzle device unless that’s something you want to do (I love personalizing my AR-15s with different accessories)…
On top of that, the free floated rail that you get with this gun allows the barrel to do its thing without anything touching it, and that usually translates to better accuracy as well…
So I highly recommend the Radical Firearms FR16 because I think it’s definitely a quality AR-15 and right now, it’s one of the best ARs you can get for the money!
Last, the FR16’s upper comes with M4 feed ramps which will help your AR-15 feed rounds more reliably, especially if you’re shooting a lot of rounds fast…And here’s the cool part, the safety lever on the right side of the gun is shortened so that it doesn’t interfere with your trigger finger if you’re a right-handed shooter…On top of that, the barrel that you get is Melonite finished which is a very strong finish, and it will help protect the inside and outside of your barrel from corrosion…
When you’re AR-15 shopping, you always want to make sure that you’re rifle is chambered in 5.56 Nato (or .223 Wylde) and not chambered in .223 Remington…
First of all, the RPR features M-LOK slots in the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock positions. So you can easily mount things like lights, lasers, vertical foregrips, and any other accessories you can think of…The trigger that comes with the FR16 is a standard mil-spec trigger. It’s a single-stage trigger, and with the right amount of practice, you can shoot very quickly and accurately with it…
In addition to that, the Minimalist stock is extremely lightweight, so it doesn’t weigh down your gun and make it unwieldy, and it has a comfortable rubber butt-pad which fits my shoulder like a glove…
One of the reasons why AR-15s are so popular is that the platform is inherently ergonomic, and that’s certainly the case with the magazine release and bolt release that come on the FR16…
The Radical Firearms FR16 features a mid-length gas system, and this is pretty unusual when it comes to budget AR-15s, which typically feature a carbine-length gas system…
That said, I don’t think you need to change it because it works reliably, and as long as you do your part with marksmanship fundamentals, it’ll get the job done.
So having it completely removed on the MFT grip is a great benefit for me because I can quickly shoot the gun without having to shift my fingers around on the grip beforehand…
First of all, it has no finger ledge, which is a big deal for me. I can’t stand the finger ledge that comes on A2 pistol grips because my third finger always sits right on top of it (and that’s the case with a lot of other shooters as well)…Radical Firearms doesn’t really share much information about who makes their bolt carrier groups, but I have heard that Azimuth Technology makes BCGs for Radical Firearms…
And you get an optic rail, which is pretty standard on AR-15s these days, but it’s an important feature because it will allow you to easily mount a red dot or scope onto your rifle.And because the barrel features a 1/2×28 thread pitch, you can easily install another muzzle device (again, if you want to) or screw on a suppressor if you have one.The Radical Firearms AR-15 comes with one 30-round magazine. I recommend that you get at least 4 more, because I think 5 magazines per gun is a minimum of what you should have (remember, magazines can break and it’s good to have extras)…

And in this Radical Firearms review, we’re going to examine how the FR16 stacks up to its competition and see if it’s truly worth the affordable price that you pay for it…I also like that you get a SOCOM barrel profile with the RF16 because it’s a little bit heavier profile than a government profile barrel, and SOCOM barrels can tend to be a little more accurate as well…
Is a radical a cheap AR?
Radical Firearms AR-15s are well-built, affordable rifles. They feature a forged 7075 T6 aluminum upper and lower, upgraded furniture, and a mid-length gas system.
Last, I like that the MFT grip sits at a more 90 degree angle than the A2 grip. For me, it’s just a little bit more natural of an angle, and I find that it makes for a more comfortable experience when you’re shooting the gun.
Some budget AR-15s will omit these two features, and there are many people who claim that they’re not important to the AR design or that they’re never used…
4140 Chrome Moly Vanadium is a strong barrel material and for a budget AR-15 like the RF16, I think it’s a good choice because it helps keep the cost of the rifle down while still adding a lot of strength to the barrel…
When it comes to shootability, the FR16 is a reliable AR-15, and because it has that mid-length gas system (rather than a carbine-length system) it’s also a pretty smooth-shooting AR-15 too.
Having a long ambi safety has created problems for me as I right-handed shooter in the past. So it’s nice to see that you get an ambi safety that won’t create ergonomic problems for right-handed shooters as well.Radical Firearms AR-15s are well-built, affordable rifles. They feature a forged 7075 T6 aluminum upper and lower, upgraded furniture, and a mid-length gas system. They also have a good reputation for reliability and a limited lifetime warranty that applies to the original purchaser of the gun…
