Step aside Zenvo, another Danish sports car entity is here to capture our attention and so far it’s doing a remarkable job. With a company name that reflects their desire for a luxury vehicle of the same characteristic, Agile Automotive is being touted as the Danish alternative to Lotus with their two lightweight sports cars the SC122 and the SCX. Both of which have road and track versions.
A representative for their company and the foundation on which all future Agile designs will be built, the SC122 combines “simple and elegant Scandinavian design with the raw and functional design of racing.” In plain terms, we get a gorgeous car without compromising speed and functionality.
Like the Lotus Exige the SC122 is said to rival, under the hood is a Toyota sourced supercharged 3.5-litre V6. The SC122 has a mid-engine layout and is capable of 425-hp and can be combined with a 5-speed manual or 7-speed sequential race transmission with optional paddle shifts. The engine can be modified to the owner’s specifications and the supercharger removed if desired. Other add-ons include wings, splitters and canards.
The self-administered moniker, SCX or Sports Car eXtreme, is a performance car of the barest sort stripped of everything except what is necessary for an unadulterated, exhilarating driving experience. What does this mean? There are no windshields, doors, windows or a roof and so, according to Auto Express, should handle like a radioactive go-kart.
Agile’s all carbon fiber chassis and bodywork resulted in a 1,323 pound car powered by your option of a naturally aspirated or supercharged Toyota 2.0-litre engine that is capable of around 178 and 274 horsepower respectively.
No formal prices have been made public, but estimates being bandied about are that the SC122 will go for around $117,000 and the SCX, $74,000. Agile is now accepting pre-orders on their website.
