The GT-R is missing every single apex, you can see the traction control stepping in because he gets on the gas early. The Exige driver, on the other hand, is doing a decent job. That GT-R is being punished by a bad driver. Poor thing. The Exige is very fast on track, I've tried to chase one, so I think it would still have one given equal drivers.

The GT-R driver cleans up a bit later in the video.....but early on, I was watching and thinking that the Exige driver went to drivers school and the GT-R driver went to Clown School

Very cool , but that V6 Exige at "power up" did not look much faster than a full blown REV400 Elige from where I was sitting. In front of my monitor I mean. Sweet car huh? Almost makes you want to move overseas.. But the REV400 car will have almost 100 whp more than that V-6. And will weigh less. Torque will be better on the low end on the V6, and maybe across the entire power band.. Just my ignorant ramblings....

It almost looked like the GTR was only there to film the Lotus.

you're comparing an out-the-box factory car vs one that's highly tuned with rebuilt motor and tranny = big $$$$$

wait until people lighten the v6 exige and tune it for more power.

wow. too bad the back is ugly. it has a rear bumper so what the hell they no sell it in the US?
In an effort to save the car I summited this rendering but got turned down but I understand, what does Lotus know about design, heck, they sell you a Yellow shirt with green text on it for $90 and people actually buy it -eek- rotfl
