Hurray! Lotus fans will be thrilled to know that the car maker has officially declared that it will unleash its 2007 Exige S coupe in US. This is news as the company had earlier claimed the contrary. The British automaker calls the car the “quickest Lotus production car” ever made. It weighs just 935 kg (2057 lbs) and is powered by a 218 horsepower high-revving supercharged engine, giving a zero to 100 km/h time of just 4.3 seconds (0 – 60 mph in 4.1 seconds).
Fuel economy is expected somewhere between 25 and 30 mpg. A slightly redesigned air intake and roof scoop has been added to the Exige S to ensure that the air to air intercooler works as efficiently and effectively as possible in all climates and environments. A single oval exhaust exits from the centre of the undertray. The 148 mph car is tagged for $56,990.
