Was not able to expand the bochure print sufficiently to verify what looks like a 0 to 60 time of 3.8 seconds. Seriously impressive if correct.

The car is a real animal!

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

Well, I went trying to find some info on this car on the Aussie dealer websites. Glad I wasn't holding my breath as the only website that I could find that had a pic was Zagames in Melbourne. Trivett in Sydney still show the old exige and nowhere can I find a price. If you guys are talking GBP 50k, then I would expect these to be over the $150k mark on road here.


All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

it weighs in at 250+kgs more than the old Cup 260 hence the bhp/tonne is about 10 better; so much for lightweight small platform; Cup 260 had downforce of 42kgs at 100mph and the new V6 Exige 43kgs at 100mph

We will need to wait for the Cup version to loose a few kgs then we will have an excellent package the new V6 needs to be nearer 1100kgs to give it the 300+bhp/tonne then it will be quick

For me the choice if choosing now would be between a new Exige or a 2-11. Which would make a better 'Swiss passes' car if you accepted that it was only coming out on sunny days? We'll see soon I guess.

Truth is, for this environment I'm not sure what else would be on the shortlist - even if it was 'money no object'. I guess a GT3RS, but it would certainly not be a done deal.

Unfortunately the 997RS I was hoping to do a back-to-back with this summer was recently parked into a crash barrier at 120mph and is no longer available :(
