Am I the only one who seems to think of the Exige as a poor choice for a rally car? It sits really low, has fragile body work that's expensive to replace, isn't all wheel drive, and generally seems like a fragile car for running over terrain the way rally cars do. Wouldn't something with a 50/50 weight balance and all wheel drive be a better choice? How much does the front bumper on a Focus cost vs an Exige clam? I cringe just thinking about my Elise running on a rough dirt road, let alone some of the horrible roads rally cars face.
