Though Lotus has been making the same car for roughly three decades now, it’s hard not to appreciate the raw look of the 2005 Exige, even today.
This 1700-pound Lotus Exige-shaped race car is among the fastest hillclimb cars in South Africa, having set a record-blazing run up the Knysna Simola Hillclimb course in late 2017. The car was once a road legal Lotus, but every component in the car has been modified in the pursuit of ever-faster sprint times. The…
The 2017 Lotus Exige 380 is a shot straight down Main Street of the company’s known ethos: more power and less weight than the last car. Specifically, this little monster has been dialed to 375 horsepower and 2,424 pounds. But I still think the exposed-linkage stick shift is the coolest feature.
Brothers, sisters, rejoice! The wail of a new Lotus Elise and a new Lotus Exige are both on the horizon! Listen closely, listen carefully, and then listen a lot – a whole big lot – more longer. Keep listening. And listening. For years. Because the Lotus CEO said that while we are getting two new Lotii to replace the…
It may seem like Lotus is on hold with building new cars, but the lightweight Exige Sport 350 still offers plenty of go power as well as some red or yellow Tartan trim just like the one you find in a ‘76 Esprit.
The Lotus Elise just celebrated its 20th birthday by losing a bunch of weight. Happy birthday, Elise! But Lotus wasn’t done there. They’ve also hauled out an even more hardcore version of the Elise’s already-hardcore Exige. Meet the Exige S Club Racer.
Sure sure, a five-liter Caprice makes an excellent snow car. But maybe that thing is a little too civilized and sane. What about a Lotus?
You may think we're joking when we talk about how hard it is to get in and out of small, mid-engine, two-seater sports cars with high window sills. The truth of the matter is, it really is pretty much impossible without an amputation along the way. And it's usually a head that has to come off.
To me, the Lotus Exige has always been kind of like Michael Jackson in the "Bad" video. You know how other sports cars act like they're so pure and hardcore? The Exige has always been here to tell them "You ain't BAD! You ain't NOTHIN'!"
If you think about it, it's pretty clear that they don't make supercars for the hardcore fanatics. What the companies responsible for creating our dreamcars have in mind today are Chinese millionaires, Russian playboys, and some emission, noise and pedestrian safety regulations. Maybe some retired dentists as well.
Lotus just pubbed a post and video teasing what may be a facelifted 2012 Lotus Exige on its media site. The headline of the post? "The Lotus Fight: What The F...rankfurt?" It's making us continue to wonder "What The F-" as well.
It's the end of an era — the last of the Lotus "comeback cars." Lotus will reveal the Exige Matte Black Final Edition – an exclusive bit for North America — at the Pebble Beach car-o-thon next week.
The last weekends of summer are fast approaching. Pictured above is one way to spend that fleeting time. Come to think of it, is there any other way to spend it? (Photo Credit: Andrew Thompson)
There's a dealership along Woodward, halfway between 14 and 15 Mile roads, it's called Auto Europe and among their currently-offered nameplates: Noble, Austin Healey, Mini, Jaguar, Porsche, Lotus and Ferrari. It's like a candy store for car nuts.
Hey you, insane person, here's your car. It's a turbocharged, supercharged and intercooled Lotus Exige with a claimed
550HP 700HP (!), a wide-body kit, fully race-prepped interior and weighing 2,150 lbs. The best part? It's for sale. Updated.
