With the demise of the Lotus Elise and Exige, the lineup is looking pretty barren these days. Only the Evora exists for those looking to simplify and add lightness. The Los Angeles Auto Show saw the introduction of the formerly-forbidden Exige V6 Cup, but unlike our world market friends, this one is not street legal.
With a 345 horsepower supercharged V6 and a curb weight of just under 2,500 lbs, the Exige V6 has the kind of power to weight ratio that would give modern supercars a fright. But the only place you’ll be able to drive it is on a racetrack. The Exige V6 Cup will be sold only as a trackday car not intended for road use. Our own EIC pro tem has driven the car, and will be back to contribute his thoughts in the near future.
