Been searching around for a while now and its seems as though alot of people much rather favor the 220 over the Exige. Being relatively the same car how is it that the VX220 is apparently a faster car when the Exige is lighter and produces more power? (the s version at least, nevermind the 240!)

Anyone driven both cars for a one on one comparison?? I am just curious.

VX220 is not imported @ US

in Europe ,

VX is 2.2 lt 146hp and 1000 kg weight
vs
Exige is 1.8 192hp and 900 kg weight

VX220 is not faster but has better TOP SPEED ... nothing more !
Displacement differences makes top speed differences ... Better torque
