Lotus Extrema by Composite Worx

Here’s an amazing project developed by a company called Composite Worx, a supercar called Lotus Extrema that’s actually a drastically modified Lotus Exige. The car features an ultra light carbon fiber body kit with optimal air flow which includes a new front spoiler, a modified hood with larger air vents for cooling the engine, new side skirts and a huge rear wing as well.

Speaking of the engine, there’s something huge under the hood, and it’s not the normal engine you’d see in a Lotus Exige. Composite Worx replaced the car’s original engine with a massive LS9 V8 taken from a Chevrolet Corvette which is able to produce exactly 649 horsepower.

If we add the fact that this Lotus Extrema weights only 970 kg you probably realize that this car has a breathtaking power to weight ratio and it’s incredibly fast. We even have a couple of performance figures that will drop your jaw. This supercar can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and it can reach a top speed of around 320 km/h or.. 200 mph.

The Composite Worx Lotus Extrema was designed to make an impression on race tracks and it even features sport bucket seats available in either carbon or a mix of carbon and kevlar. We don’t know what’s the price of this supercar, but it surely won’t be cheap.
