The country of Denmark may soon have its own lightweight sports car. Upstart automaker Agile Automotive recently released design renderings of their upcoming two-seaters, the road-going SC122 and the more track-oriented SCX. Aimed squarely against Lotus, the two new sports cars aim to deliver a sporty drive along with precise handling.

Inverted L-shaped taillights flank the rear quarter panels while a huge rear wing provides additional downforce. Interior details remain scarce but based on the renderings, Recaro seats will be available.

Powering the SC122 will be a 3.5-liter V6 that is capable of cranking out 419 PS to the rear wheels. Meanwhile, the SCX will be driven by a 2.0-liter engine sourced from Toyota.
