I couldn't put it better myself! Can't think of anything else I'd rather be driving at that price point. The acceleration is simply intoxicating and the feedback through the wheel is nothing short of sublime.
I do find myself treating it with a healthy dose of respect when compared with the Evora though. The Evora was so benign and forgiving, whereas the Exige doesn't seem like it'll suffer fools gladly. Given the speeds involved (and how quickly these speeds can be achieved), the potential for it to go spectacularly wrong is something I like to be mindful of. That being said, it's not as terrifying in the wet as I had imagined.
All in all, a real challenge of a car when compared with the Evora, one which I relish every time I climb over the sill.
