The Lotus Exige was the iconic British sports car manufacturer’s first brand new car of the 21st century. Launched in 2000, it is essentially a slightly more robust Coupe version of their Lotus Elise model which had been in production for four years by this point.
It is also a slightly denser model then the Elise, weighing in at around 1,176 kg. The difference is undoubtedly in its engineering, with a focus on VHPD (Very High Performance Derivative) tuning in the 1.8 litre K-series engine built by Rover.
This is what makes the Exige perhaps more track focussed than any other Lotus before or since. And when you take to the wheel of one out on the circuit track, it becomes apparent with the awesome speed stats it clocks up: powering of 192 bhp, scorching acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, 0 - 100 mph in 12.7 seconds and achievable top speeds of 136 mph.
