Composite Worx is an Italian car company specialized in composite materials and located in the beautiful city of Bergamo, Italy. The company recently revealed its Lotus Exige based Extrema project which relies on the simple concept of less weight, more power.

To keep the weight down, and when I say down, I mean 970 Kg (2138 pounds), the whole body is made of carbon fiber but that's not all. The original seats were replaced by the company's SP-1 twin skin full carbon seats. The story gets even more interesting when we tell you that the original engine was ditched in favor of the 649bhp LS9 V8 from the Corvette C6.

The result is a car that can complete the 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) sprint in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 322 Km/h (200 mph). More pictures of the lightweight beast in the gallery below.
