Lotus has just unveiled the Exos Type 125 “ultimate track toy” in Monterey and it’s wilder than we ever could have imagined. It’s not some car-based trackable sports car, but essentially a Formula 1 chassis and a Cosworth F1 engine.

The V8 engine makes 650-hp at 10,300 rpm and will deliver awesome acceleration thanks to the cars 1,433 lb. curb weight and a sequential gearbox. The chassis is made of carbon fiber and even features a carbon fiber pushrod suspension setup.

In total, Lotus will build 25 Exos next year at a price of one million dollars. Buyers will get more than just a car, however, with five driver events at race tacks included.

AutoGuide will be in Monterey to check out the T125 (as well as all the other Pebble Beach festivities) later this week and we’ll be sure to bring you more photos of this exciting new track car.
