Lotus Exige V6 Cup Chasing a Ferrari 458 Speciale is the Greatest Underdog Story Ever

OK, fine, the 1980 US Olympic Hockey team is a good one too.

It's difficult to imagine a Lotus, even one as hardcore and track-focused as the Exige V6 Cup, being much of a match for a Ferrari 458 Speciale on a track. Well, you're not going to see an Exige overtaking a Ferrari here today, but you will see one doing an incredible job of keeping up while lapping Spa Francochamps. The Ferrari obviously owns the straightaways, but the Lotus is right on his tail in the turns.

It's made all the more amazing when you consider that Lotus is currently fighting just to stay afloat, despite making such a clearly phenomenal car.
