  • Road-legal 350bhp sports racer unveiled on opening day of annual motorsport bonanza
  • Rapture among the first of several exciting new car debuts at Goodwood this weekend
  • Motorsport stalwart, Radical, runs stunning new car up the famous Goodwood hill

Radical Sportscars’ brand new road-legal sportscar, the Rapture, has been unveiled at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard.

The 350bhp, six-speed Rapture, which is powered by a reworked, 2261cc Ford EcoBoost engine, has been designed by the British motor racing stalwart to bring extreme racetrack-inspired performance to the road.

Radical has been a staple of the domestic and international motorsport stage for three decades and boasts the 182bhp SR1 model – the most successful prototype-style sports racing car in the world – among its stable.

Incorporating Peterborough-based Radical’s latest innovations in powertrain, aerodynamics and electronic technology, the Rapture has also made its dynamic debut, climbing the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hillclimb.

Radical Sportscars CEO, Joe Anwyll said: “Radical has always been a business to push the boundaries; in developing Rapture, we listened carefully to our global customer base to ensure that whilst road-legal, the Rapture remains an undiluted, out-and-out track car at its core.


“We’ve distilled over two decades of motorsport heritage into the most focused, open sportscar possible. In Rapture, cutting edge direct-injection turbocharged powertrain technology and advanced underbody aerodynamics contribute to a unique package with electrifying performance.”

The Rapture is destined for UK and European markets, with homologation for other global markets to follow.

Order books for the Rapture will open imminently, with first deliveries expected by August. More information can be found at

The Radical Rapture was one of the first of many brand new cars to be unveiled at this year’s Festival of Speed, cementing the annual, four-day event as the most prestigious in the UK automotive calendar. The event opened this morning and continues until Sunday (July 7).
