    There is a special Lotus (Caterham) Super Seven that has some of the lightest construction out there with out going to the newer Eliese or the older Europa.

    They just don't come much ligher then these.

    The lightest cars are examples like Caterhams and Westfields that way between 500-600kg. Cars like these require very little, if any, modifications as they offer outstanding performance. A good car for modifying would be something like an Honda S2000 as it ways 1200kg and has a good strong engine.

    nissan 240sx. You can shed extra weight very easily, by removing the seats, and replacing the front one's with racing seats. These cars are very popular to drifters because they are light, and have good balance. Parts are also very cheap, and there are tons of engine/tranny swaps out there for it.
