I thought everyone hated 18" wheels? What's the deal, everyone? You can't have it both ways.

What's most interesting to me (considering just how few 'proper' GT3's were actually made, not the road version) is how many of these kitted up prod. Exiges are actually getting around out there. I think people underestimate just how many there are around the globe, presumably built from those moulds! That's not forgetting that once somebody has the bodywork, they can then make their own moulds from them, too.
I think they look bloody fantastic! Do want.

Also, seems a bit odd just how little weight they could shed with the red car. It still weighs 850kg!!!!! Wonder if the clams are carbon or still Fglass?

Fantastic, indeed. I wish the new Exige looked like this!

In case anyone else was interested, it looks like that orange "Zosh" car in the first post is on 235/640/18 and 265/650/18 slicks on 18x10 and 18x11 wheels. Not bad.

Pretty full on car actually. 450hp turbo 2ZZ, Sadev sequential... they're not mucking about.
Also looks somewhat 'over' braked to me - the thing has 370ish something brakes F&R that fill those 18in's, with 6-piston calipers!!!!
Talk about making out with the windscreen.


Aztec, can see a bit here.
Quite a lovely car, but they really need to fix those side skirt sections.

F'n Bahar.... DIAF.

My hat goes off to them at the very least for fixing that stupidly positioned throttle pedal, with a proper angle for H&T's.
