The Radical RXC has passed the required tests for road registration in the state of California, paving the way for street legal RXC and RXC Turbo models throughout the U.S.

The approval process was done by a Radical RXC owner named Jeffrey Cheng and while it may have been the exception to the rule, it opens the doors for Radical to have its RXC approved for road use and for sales to begin in North America. According to the British automaker, first registrations are being done on a case-by-case basis but is working on getting type-approval for sales in the U.S.

The naturally-aspirated RXC (priced from $171,280) features a 3.7-liter V6 Ford Duratec engine, though a twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 with 454 hp is available for $17,085 additional. Those wanting 500 hp from a V8 will have to pay $28,960 over the retail price. Other options include an air jack system ($3,655), a telemetry system ($5,500) and a carbon fiber kit ($3,000).
