Second Chance: ’07 Lotus Exige S
The inventors of the horseless carriage had one thing in mind: transportation. Were they afraid horses would become extinct? It didn’t take long for that utilitarian invention to be turned into something competitive. Sports versions featuring bigger engines and less weight was the formula for success back in the day. And we would venture to say that Lotus Cars perfected that formula with Exige S. The Exige has an attractive power-to-weight ratio with only 2077 pounds of car to push around. The S’s supercharged engine puts out 220 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque, giving the two-seater a ratio that is more impressive than all but a few mega-buck supercars. The Exige is much like the Elise but with a really spacey cool looking hardtop. It has a functional roof-mounted scoop to channel air to the supercharger’s intercooler, and a proper three-dimensional Lotus badge on the car’s tail. Today’s featured Exige is pretty special. It is a ’07 Lotus Exige S finished in magnetic Blue Metallic with Black leather and exclusive HRM interior modifications. It is a 1-owner car with only 1,475 miles since new. The Exige S is equipped with Sport Suspension, Sport Seats, Black finished alloys, front and rear splitters, Alcantera covered side sills, center console, gauge cluster and steering wheel, traction control, Stage Two Exhaust system, Star Shield protective clear bra, custom Lotus Logo floor mats, red finished brake calipers. There are no more new Lotus Exige S Coupes so this is your second chance to own a new one – at a discount too. If you have never had a small, responsive, thrilling sports car, this might be your opportunity to try something really different. The price is $49,900. Contact Mark at (914) 217-4817.
