It's hasn't been done yet to my knowledge but i'd assume that knocking off all that body weight would be pretty close to an 07 Exige S power/weight.

The member who posted is the guy with the lotus in the vid and he and his friend weren't trying to make a parody video or trying to be funny either. He was dead serious thinking this was a good idea.

Would it be worth it for the difference in cost between the 07 S and getting one like yours and modding it?

That video is hilarious. Definitely true to the theme--24yr olds making a video about their 'Quarter Life Crisis'. They've got the details down though with an LLC and their copyrights prominently displayed. Too bad they violated someone else's copyright with the sample, and then completely gave away their exclusive rights the second they uploaded it to youtube.

In my opinion no tho others they may say yes. It's the exact same motor, chasis, wheels, suspension, interior everything except for the supercharger. I can get the stock supercharger setup from someone upgrading for about 2500 while buying an Exige S would run about 6000 more. Or if i wanna spend 4-6k I can get an aftermarket supercharger setup putting out a good bit more hp than the Exige S. I'm quite capable of bolting on a supercharger and intercooler. And my insurance will be cheaper I'm sure haha.

Dang, you weren't kidding when you said the WHOLE car in CF. I was expecting the doors, hood and shell to be CF but not literally everything.

That is nuts though. You need the Exige hatch.

Nope he's doing everything possible. That dash was mostly foam underneath so it was tricky to make a mold of.

Just sell the title to Jeremy's DSM and you should have the cash to pick up the CF hatch.

Steven Tyler's new Hennessey Venom GT "convertible" at Irvine cars and coffee last weekend


While Hennessey claims its not a lotus it sure looks like a stretched one to me and not much on the interior was changed at all.
I'm still waiting to see some comparison vids with a bugatti.

I just got word from our broker that the shipment is due in Chicago (a couple hours from our shop) on the 26th, then two days before it is available to ship to our shop.

We are getting there!
