The faster, more powerful version of the LX4 also takes influence from the real-life Caterham and Lotus Seven. The LX6 takes any notion of control the LX4 has, and throws it out the window for more sheer power. Anyone who can learn to drive the LX6 to its limit will find it a fast and thrilling challenge around almost any track. Few get even close to its full potential without losing control, however. Pedal and steering input has to be precise, smooth, and well thought-out at every turn.
The LX6 has hybrid and knobbly tire options, so it's technically a plausible choice for rallycross events. The LX6 has far too much power for effective off-road driving, and will likely spin out of control if pushed anywhere near its limit, so only the craziest of experts should consider using it for rallycross events.
