Lotus gone, replaced with a Lotus!

Lotus gone, replaced with a Lotus!

After nearly 8 years, our Elise has now been sold, and it will be much missed :-(
It was a great car and we had some fantastic drives in it but the good news is it's been replaced with another Lotus, this time an Exige V6!

We only picked it up last weekend so haven't had the chance to drive it much (or take any decent photos) but can't wait to get out in it more. I suspect it will be a keeper for awhile.

First thoughts are it feels like an Elise turned up to 11. Pretty raw, superb lotus steering, great power & torque and much quicker than the Elise!
And still as awkward to get in/out of! :-)

Indeed, no chance of losing it in a car park :-)

Thanks, also available in less 'in yer face' colours too :-) They look great in black/grey but after having a black Elise wanted something completely different and have always liked Chrome Orange.
