This brings back memories.. I bought my Exige December 2015 and spent the prior year (or more) obsessing and debating whether I was building a Superlite SL-C
(first choice), Ultima (second choice), or buying an Exige.
If you haven't already check out the SL-C. IMO it's better looking at a minimum, the big ass wing is optional and they have bigger
Keep in mind they're both really track cars. Not sure they would be good at AutoX or other non-track events.
