Car makers usually celebrate their production milestones when they get up the 500,000th or the millionth unit. For Radical though, it’s bit different! For them making the 1000th unit is a cause for celebration, and it took them only 13 years to get there! But then, they’re a small British sportscar maker specializing in track cars, and apart from everything, the fact that they could survive in this economy and still doing business, is quite extraordinary!
The 1000th car is a Radical SR3 RS chassis #533, which is the firm’s most popular model and has customers in Australia, China, Angola, the Middle East and the USA. There are many racing series around the world based on Radical’s cars.
Radical co-founder, Mick Hyde, said: “1,000 cars is an impressive achievement for any manufacturer; we’ve reached it with the hard work, skills and enthusiasm of the whole Radical team, some of whom have been with us since the beginning.
“By constantly redesigning, developing and testing our range, we have produced a product of the highest quality, and can ensure support for customers and distributors right across the globe. It’s these reasons that Radical Sportscars continues to go from strength to strength; I’m confident that the next 1,000 cars will be produced even quicker than the first”.
