I’m new to this forum, but I took delivery of mine today. 

Hopefully this does it a little justice: https://gfwilliams.net/cars/430-cup-driven/

My plan for the last 6 months was always to buy a brand new Exige but the closer I get to that prospect the more I think I need my head examined........so right there with you Mark, but admire the fact you did itB-)

I’d love my very own spec 380 Sport but I’m starting to think that the only way to buy one is to buy second hand......but will I truly love it, if it’s not the exact spec that floats my personal boat. Suddenly finding myself owning an Evora S has only highlighted this further and made me think harder, because as much as I want the Exige is it really going to be worth twice the Evora cost in grin factor value?

I know this is all subjective & personal choice but it’s good to share.....:) I’m not the first in this position and won’t be the last.

Slightly off topic - apologies

@Cristiano Pretty much I'll do the same.... Enjoy and drive the car, since I believe it is mighty fun and performant anyway..... and let's wait for the 460 Cup or the 1st 2nd hand Cup 430.... I saw the 2nd hand 380 Cup.... my guess is that it's gonna be difficult to sell one in November with the 1st snow, but 100k is a good price if the guy is in a hurry he might get some interest.... but it's a niche market

@Jokke Vlo It's always better to invest in the driving skills than in the car.... that's for sure... once you run out of additional skills, consider upgrading the car :):):)

No LSD, that's what the guy in the Italian video says.

I don't like the silver wheels. I saw a 380 cup with those  (live also) and they were ugly. Looks like a cheap part on an expensive car.

Whereas I cannot stand the look of black wheels. Hey-ho.

Of course matter of taste.. but on a track day car, black wheels is the way to go, with all the dust, rubber, etc.. I agree that the design of the wheels is very minimalistic and could be easily improved in both versions.

The next thing we will have someone saying the front splitter is to low and they seen it being scrapped in the factory, sorry that was mentioned in a other room.

Car looks too high for me... needs lowering and needs the Cup R splitter ;)

No one can complain about splitters being too low unless they're finding them scrap braking hard from 145mph lol

A 430 Cup engine into a 380 Cup, easy. buy a completely new engine from the factory, and keep the 1st one as a back up. KT sells a complete Exige V6 engine for less than € 10k...... I don't see the 430 Cup being that much more expensive .....
