New Exige offers stunning driver appeal

Written by: Neil

What can we say about the new Lotus Exige, apart from the fact that this is one of the best-looking new sports cars we've seen this year!

Everyone here in the Petrol News office simply loves the look of the new Lotus Exige Sport 380 – and with an impressive 375 bhp, it's also the fastest Exige to date, capable of shifting from zero to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds.

Moreover, with its nose-to-tail carbon fibre chassis and total weight of just 1,100 kg, it delivers a blistering 352 bhp/tonne.

Unashamedly a car that does away with all those mod cons that buyers might get with the latest Ferrari or McLaren; instead, Lotus have gone for a stripped-back approach that enables the model to be faster, sharper and more direct.

This is no motoring dinosaur though, with the new Sport 380's 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine coupled with a keen eye for aerodynamic performance meaning that the model can keep up with all of the big guns in the innovative design stakes.

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, adds: "The Exige is one of those legendary brand names that just puts a smile on the face of all true-blooded petrolheads. This new Sport 380 therefore has a lot to live up to, but we're sure the Lotus racing pedigree and passion will shine through."
