Very cool write-up RC, thanks for providing all the neat data too...definitely adds to the 'test' feel of it. Nice pics as well, and yes we want to hear about the Exige!

What a great car to review And with data telemetry too! (that stuff really gets me hot )

What kind of telemetry system was on it? I see you had speed, G sensors.. but did you also have potentiometers on the pedels and steering wheel?

Is that thing even road legal in the US? I know you've said its too hardcore to drive on the streets, but I just wouldnt help driving it on every nice day!

How much for this whole package?

I am guessing that it will be around $48K.

Body $26K + Engine/gearbox $12K + Options $10K

Pretty Expensive toy!!!

I wonder how the Superlight will handle our Texas roads with all its bumps and dips. Does it have enough wheel travel? In GT4, the car was a nightmare on the N'ring - it got a lot of air time.

I think the enw CSR will be better for sure.

As a trackday car that you can still drive to the circuit and back, an R300 or R400 will be incredible. The R500 or the JPE will be mad!!!

That was a good write up, thanks for sharing *thumbsup*

Wish we had some tracks in Switzerland, and of course people with track cars like this. It's such a rare sight to see a Super 7 or something similar on these roads...

One of these days, I'm gonna have to take a flight to the UK just to go witness a track day with all the ultimas, radicals, caterhams, atoms and so on, winding up and down the track at breakneck speeds
