Weighs 970 kg

Composite Worx is an Italian car company working on this interesting Lotus Exige-based Extrema.

Located in Bergamo, Composite Worx is an unknown name in the car industry but this might change after seeing their Lotus Extrema project. It's based on the Exige and comes with a Chevrolet Corvette-sourced LS9 V8 engine producing 649 hp (484 kW).

With a curb weight of just 970 kg (2138 lbs), the Extrema is able to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in only 2.9 seconds and needs 7 seconds from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) on its way to a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). That low curb weight was possible thanks to the vehicle's carbon fiber body and SP-1 twin skin full carbon seats.

Fast as lightning, no doubt. As for the styling, too much going on,in my opinion. But I think styling was not even taken into consideration in this case. Performance was.

Seems like a weird fusion of S1 chassis (check the sill height), S2 bodywork, and an American thoroughbred engine! 8)

Think of this as a more compact take on the Venom formula...you can tell its at least a short wheel base(and looks even more Elise-ish)
