The Lotus Exige S - Roadster



Overview:

The Exige S Roadster blends the extreme and the sublime, it's a balance between beauty and the beast, and with its 345 hp supercharged V6 engine it's not for the faint hearted.

To create desirable, wind-in-the-hair excitement, the Exige S Roadster maintains its peerless lightweight performance pedigree with its top removed. Better to hear the 345bhp (350PS) supercharged V6 engine, the aural effect is of a classic convertible. Yet, there is no loss of its track-inspired details and its focused aerodynamics and hip-hugging cabin, underline its purpose. The purity of its driving thrills are a Lotus remit that promotes the sensation of driver intimacy with the car, enhanced, when the weather permits, by greater intimacy with the environment. The Exige S Roadster is a performance car developed for drivers by equally passionate drivers. Developed expertly by the renowned Lotus ride and handling team, at the Hethel test track, its dynamic capabilities are inspirational, in the way that only a Lotus can be.
