His love/ownership of the original helped lead me to buy one.
I showed him a S1 Honda conversion at Bedford when he was there trying a new 911 GT3 some years ago and he was skipping about (clearly wanting to ask for the keys).
yeah we should send im out in a SC+CC honda’d one

You might only have to find about half of that if you are chopping in an S1…dirty thought I know…
I’ve read two articles now that talk of the Bosch system and in particular it’s learning ability:
“What you actually get is a state-of-the-art traction control map that can learn not only the grip level of the circuit…”
Does suggest that in addition to the normal yaw/pitch sensors it has a gps element to be able to sense when it is in the same position on circuit? May be just me but that together with talk of a front axle (!) got me confused.
What’s wrong with the Evora rear suspension - “the suspension arms are of higher quality than those used on the Evora S”?
Hmm, not sure if that would be a good idea or not. What happens if you take a different line on the same corner, or it’s started to rain, etc?
Quick, delete before Tim sees!!!

Being cynical, I think it’s lazy journos regurgitating the marketing bullshit - like many modern car systems today, I imagine it senses several different things, calculates and reacts according to set parameters - not really learning at all.
Happy to be proved wrong though if this is really a new system that moves things on a quantum step.

Great vid, best quote for me,
“if I’d been driving an Series 1 Exige by now I’d have had about 4 or 5 proper gusset eating moments” (at 9:28)
classic Harris & clearly very excited by the new car.
Seems very good but i’m not entirely sure about the rear end though…
Harris looks strangely like a young Engleburt Humperdinck, minus the full sideburns.
As a result I can’t take him seriously
Sounds like its a greatdrive but I cant get over the fact that its an exige with no roof scoop they should have put one on for show IMO.
Agree but wonder if the rally version that carries a scoop could be spec’d on the production line. It might cost more but you might be able to save on the aircon option as in the rally brochure it has what is described as a “cockpit cooling scoop”?
Yes, but does it work or does it just let in water?
He’s at Anglesey this week:

Love all 3 od those cars, but for different reasons! Monkey scores another ultimate trackday (see his vid on the “Drive Channel” on Youtube testing the V8 Atom and Noble M600 at the Ring!!!)
Anyone know how his lap time of 1:36 in the Porsche compares to a SC CC Honda Exige??
Elise Trophy in 2009 1:37.5ish put you on the front row as demonstrated by our very own Mr Bicknell in his Audi Exige. This was to LOT regs though. David Fenn’s m/s Elise put in a similar time. I’d imagine a Honda/Audi car without LOT regs would be quite a bit quicker esp say Christian or Jamie’s cars…that is you can…ahem get the power down eh Christian
