Lotus has confirmed the mechanical details of the next generation Exige S roadster which the company claims are the fastest Lotus to be ever brought to production. The Exige S has a limited top speed of 145 MPH which may not seem to be much except for the fact that the Exige S weighs 1166 kg, approximately 10 kg less than its predecessor.

Powered by powerful 3.5 liter petrol V6 displacing 345 BHP @ 7000 RPM along with 295 ft lb of torque @ 4500 RPM and you get the perfect power to weight ratio possible on a car of its size.
The Exige S is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 MPH within 3.8 seconds and the car is capable of reaching 100 MPH within 8.5 seconds. The top speed has been scaled down considerably to facilitate better drivability and control.

The engine - six speed automatic transmission system available with an advanced Serial Precision Shift as well as a paddle shift manual transmission system. Fuel efficiency and CO2 emission on the manual Exige S is expected to be 28 MPG and 236 g/km. The figures are not up to the mark when you consider the stiff market condition. The lotus is also offering souped up race versions of the Exige S which could be yours for an additional pay pack obviously.

Priced at £52,900, the track centered version of the Exige S features a reworked suspension and damper setting which enhances track performance of the car along with minor engine tweaks which along with interior modifications designed at enhancing the comfort level of the vehicle. Advanced launch control also makes this vehicle steady at the starting line and is a very important part of the electronic control of this vehicle.

Lotus claims that the new top is the best feature about the Exige S and this completes the vehicle in its true sense. The Exige lineup includes the Exige S, Exige Cup and the Exige Cup R. This vehicle also features dual cabin styling and this gives the interior its classy yet sporty appeal. Overall the Exige S is an overall hit.
