Lotus Exige S Roadster goes into production in a few months

Lotus is a pioneer name in the automobile field. They have always raised standards to higher levels and they never stood still. The company has sixty years of history and innovation was the key of success on the road but on the track too. Nowadays Lotus is an expert in lightweight architecture and this allowed it to become a leader in green vehicle technology. Last year in Geneva Auto Show, the Lotus Exige S Roadster has been officially presented.  The news is that the vehicle will enter production this summer.

The Exige S Roadster is powered by a V6 3.5-liter supercharged engine that produces 345 bhp (257 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. It will be linked to a 6-speed manual and an optional Serial Precision Shift (SPS) gearbox. The Exige Roadster will be able to go from 0 to 60 mph( 96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds. Its maximum speed can reach 145 mph (233 km/h). The fuel consumption will be somewhere around 10 liters / 100 km (23.3 mpg US or 28 mpg UK).

This uncompromising quest for excellence, no shortage of sporting laurels, and a visionary attention to aesthetic style has made Lotus one of the most inspirational British brands, and among the very strongest in the automotive industry. It stands for passion, individuality, and gritty determination.
