Radford, known for its high-performance and bespoke automobiles, demonstrated its prowess once again at the 30th Goodwood Festival of Speed, showcasing the mesmerizing Type 62-2 Pikes Peak Edition. The Radford Type 62-2 Pikes Peak Edition, the first of the Track Editions, was unveiled at Goodwood amidst much anticipation after its incredible Pikes Peak victory. The car serves as a testament to Radford’s adeptness at developing bespoke race cars, equipped to face the most arduous challenges.
Having already established its pedigree at the renowned hill climb event, the Type 62-2 Pikes Peak Edition marked a new high point. It emerged as the Exhibition Class winner with a time of 09:37.326 at the 101st Pikes Peak, expertly driven by acclaimed Rally and Race Car Driver, Tanner Foust. This victory marked Foust’s first time breaking the esteemed 10-minute barrier.
The Track Edition series is limited to 12 vehicles, each meticulously tailored to the buyer’s specifications. The series showcases the pinnacle of Radford’s technology, from a carbon monocoque chassis that is 50% lighter yet three times stronger than its predecessor to exposed carbon construction in the interior panels. Buyers can choose between a high-quality leather finish or an exposed carbon one for a visceral racing feel.
These track cars come with an exclusive ‘Track Package’, offering an array of premium accessories including a bespoke Sparco driving suit, driving shoes, SALT sunglasses, and even a special edition car cover. Radford’s partnership with Yokohama ensures specialist tire support, with an extra set of wheels and tires, tire warmers, a laser alignment kit, and a toolset by Mac Tools. Additionally, customers are afforded the unique opportunity to train with racing legends Jenson Button and Tanner Foust at the Radford Racing School.
As Radford’s VP of Marketing, Izzy Roa, articulates, “Turning to motorsport to help refine and develop our cars is everything that Radford represents.” The brand not only focuses on creating visually stunning vehicles but also ensures top-notch performance. This competitive refinement, honed on the track, effortlessly translates to their customer cars.
The Type 62-2 Pikes Peak Edition is more than a performance car; it’s the embodiment of Radford’s tradition of excellence and innovation. It exemplifies the brand’s commitment to quality, power, and luxury, forging a path to a high-octane future.
