    Picked up my Exige Sport 380 on Saturday. It's an absolute weapon.

    Until the GT3 is sold, I seem to have rather too many fast cars.

    Will be keeping the Trophy though - the fun factor is just so accessible. It's also got about 1000x the load carrying capacity of the Exige.

    Congrats on the new addition.

    Do these use the 3.5 V6 now?

    Wonder what it's like compared to the 996 GT3?
    Both are stripped out racers but I'd imagine the Exige is on a completely different level regarding back to basics motoring.

    You have a cracking collection there

    Thanks.

    Yes, the Exige uses a supercharged 3.5 V6.
    It's faster, lighter, louder & even rawer than the GT3, but more slightly compliant in the way it rides.

    In other words,guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time :smiley:

    The 996 GT3,especially if it's a Gen 1,must be quite a rare car as well.
    It's great to be able to enjoy them both anyway.

    Happy motoring
