We spotted this gorgeous Lotus Exige on the MotorCrush Trending feed and had to share it with you guys. This Exige is driven in the Pirelli World Challenge and SCCA by MotorCrush user Dennis Hanratty Jr. In stock form, the car has 220 bhp and 165 lb-ft of torque thanks to its Toyota-sourced 1.8L supercharged inline-four and does 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Due to the car’s exceptional chassis dynamics and handling, it’s a force to be reckoned with on the racetrack. As always, make sure to drop Dennis a like for sharing his ride. Also, don’t forget to give him a follow so you can see where he is checking in during his journey to the Pirelli World Challenge podium.

FEATURED BUILD OF THE WEEK

2011 Ford Mustang GT
Owned by Joe Quattrachi

VEHICLE BIO: “In 2011 I bought a GT, was going to be a daily driver. A friend just said wait, I said wait for what? I then bought a gas cap and that escalated into a monster. I couldn’t stop buying mods. Still today I find myself getting bored and changing things. My Mustang is basically a show car now. IG: m00seknuckle101”

COLOR: White custom painted

ENGINE TYPE: Coyote V8 supercharged

MILEAGE: 23000

BUILD STATUS: Always building

Joe’s build started the way a lot of our builds do: with a small upgrade to a daily driver. Like many of us before, once making his first mod he made another, then another, and soon he caught himself a case of the build bug. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the build bug once you’re hooked. Its effects will continue until you run out of money or move on to another build. It’s an affliction that many enthusiasts deal with and they need all of the support they can get. So make sure you go show Joe some love and drop his stunning Mustang GT a like and follow via the link above.
