A true lightweight sportscar - Supasse V

Here's finally a new sportscar that actually is truly lightweight, the Supasse V, just recently announced by the vendor at the Tokyo motor show and going on sale in 2010.
It weighs roughly 850 kg and is powered by the Mazda 3 MPS engine with 265 HP. This should guarantee good performance and fun on the road. The price is supposed to be similar than the Lotus Exige, so below 90'000 USD. We'll give it a warm welcome despite the somewhat suboptimal design. And I am sure we can still do better, what about 800 kg and 300 HP? This should be possible, even with a small KERS module on board to add torque and lower fuel consumption. Try harder!
