Although 261kW might not seem like much power behind closed doors, from the Rapture this is a lot.

There is also adjustable ARC dampers.

“Radical is without question a small business to push the boundaries; in developing Rapture, we listened carefully for our global clients to make sure that whilst road legal, the Rapture remains an undiluted, out-and-out track car at its core.”
