A big super mega thanks goes out to our reader Moe6 from Malaysia for the info leading to this feature.
I first saw this car a couple of years back in a full feature spread placed in UK’s Evo Magazine (easily the worlds best car magazine written in English).

It was meant to be their vision of a GT racer using the Exige chassis, but at the time they didnt seem to have any further plans for it. They ultimately called it the Exige 300R.
At the time it looked to me that the car would do the show circuit as a fancy Lotus concept car and that’d be the end of it. A damn shame that would have been if my thoughts were correct…
