Launched at the first round of the Lotus Motorsport Elise race series, the Exige was shown to groups of fans in a mini stage show featuring glamour girls as is becoming standard for Lotus. Prior to unveiling the car Lotus described the car as "loud, rude and exciting!"

Based on 340R running gear the new Exige will reach 60mph in a pleasant 4.7 seconds. Very much a racing car for the road, the Exige draws on influences from the race cars with a variety of cooling intakes added including one on the roof. A lightweight glass fibre reinforced composite body is used featuring a deeper front splitter and a high level rear wing, giving well balanced downforce characteristics yet retaining the same drag coefficient as the Elise.

A new opening polycarbonate tailgate allows the engine to be seen much in the style of the Ferrari 360.

It should retail for around �33,000. Orders are now being taken with first deliveries expected in July.
