Awesome — Its simply AWESOME!!! Ask if you want to go for a drive as i'm running out of excuses. Corners like nothing ive been in or driven before. Sounds unbelievable inside and out. Acceleration is scary(2 hands on the wheel scary) Looks like a mini-exotic, people take pictures in car parks and generally stare constantly.

Pros

Pure driving experience

Cons

not practical by any means

I'd Argue Its The Best Sports Car For The Money — This is a raw, bare to the bones driving experience that offered unparalleled handling and driver feedback. It's a car that looks like $100k but really can be had for a fraction of that cost. The NA car is weak on power but there are a lot of aftermarket power adders that help match the performance to the looks.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

good road and track performance

Cons

need more horsepower

Fast And Fun — Fun and good handling performance but you always want more horsepower Very nice lines but may look a little more agressive ! Interior could be more race appearance but that will come later on . Best car who likes trackdays and nice fast public roads!

Light, agile, quick, easy to handle.

Cons

Cramped for some drivers, average top end.

True British Race Car — Words don't even begin to explain how this car performs. My suggestion is simply to get behind the wheel and experience it personally. The Exige is actually quite affordable considering the power held within.

A Go Kart For The Road! — Champagne for lemonade money! This is basically a supercar for Ford Focus money! Nothing puts a smile on your face more than driving this car!

Simplify And Add Lightness — It's not an everyday car, mostly weekend car or for a short distance drive on normal road It's a car for the track

This Car Is Awesome For Performance. A Little Tougher For Day-to-day. By Christopher
