Not many people have heard of British sports car maker Radical, but they are in fact one of the few small firms that are still in existence today in spite of their highly specialized field and the small market they cater to. The reason for that is because of cars like this Radical RXC Turbo 500, custom track cars you can drive on the road on friday and break lap records with on saturday.

The magnificent RXC was present at Top Marques Monaco 2015 after which it took to the streets of the principality offering rides to spotters and enthusiasts. This is a rare chance you get to see a Radical in action in onboard footage:
