The Radical SR8 is a British sports car made by Radical Sportscars.

Dominic Dobson drove one to victory in the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Michael Verger held the all-time lap record of the Nordschleife circuit on the Nürburgring until 27 September 2017[2], doing so in 2009 in a Radical SR8 on Dunlop Direzza DZ03 tyres. He clocked a lap time of 6:48:28.

A prototype is being made, with the help of Radical Sportscars, into an all-electric version by Racing Green Endurance, a student-led project of Imperial College London.
