…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Sector111 Exige?

Sector111 Exige

The Lotus Exige is already a rather remarkable little car, so when you take it and hand it off to a tuner, the results are often mind blowing.

Sector111’s Exige is a prime example of that fact. The track-tuned terror is ready to take on any supercar thanks to a roots hybrid supercharger that brings horsepower up to 240+. (Which doesn’t sound like much, until you remember that the car weights just 2,000 lbs with a full tank and a fat driver.

Sector111 Exige Details

With great power comes great responsibility however, so the Sector111 Exige also includes aerodynamic enhancements like a carbon fiber front splitter, undertray, 5-element rear diffuser, side skirts, rear wing, and arch louvers. In addition, carbon fiber body mods include a CF roof, rear hatch, access panels, and side scoops to keep weight down without sacrificing aerodynamic performance.

An AP Racing Big Brake Kit brings everything to a halt when needed, and a Nitron Exige GT3 triple adjustable suspension system keeps all four wheels planted through even the most pant soiling turns.

That’s just too damn bad, because there’s just not much left on the car to modify! (Lightweight valve stems coming soon…)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: You and the Mini Configurator?

Mini

According to Mini, there are now over 10,000,000 ways to configure your pint-sized ride, which means that after choosing your own paint color, turn signal color, upholstery color, door trim color, heliport roof graphic, roof rack, aero kit, radio, wheels, valve stems, and floor mats, you can stop playing tuner and drive off in your now $40,000 ride with a third door on the street side.

I guess mini car doesn’t always mean mini price.
