Amazing... Not sure about the red wheels but everything else are gorgeous. Wish they are road legal here in US

Nah, I fully agree. The wheel color is spot on. I'm looking into changing wheel colors because I love the look of that deep red. This car needs to hit the states in 2020.

It all looks great except for that hideously bulky looking air bag cover on the steering wheel.

Yeah, the airbag cover is not great, but it beats the tacky rubber and scratched trim rings so common on the originals.

Agree, looks awesome. And such a track weapon.

Colors quite similar to our new 370Z Nismo. But a really serious machine.

Anyone notice the steering wheel radius seems bigger than our momo OEN wheel?

I wouldn't be surprised if they made the wheel a bit bigger to add some leverage since the V6 Exige is 400ish pounds heavier than the Elise.
