Lotus Exige S Production Hits 1,000 Units
Lotus has just built and ready to deliver its 1,000 Lotus Exige S. This facelifted model was introduced with a new 3.5 liter V6 engine, capable of delivering 350 hp and 400 Nm. The Exige has been impressing customers in Japan where the car has received most of its orders followed by the UK, Switzerland, Australia, Hong Kong and Belgium.
The 1000th car wont be sold, as it is destined for Lotus’s Test and Development team where it will be used for the final sign-off of the new automatic gearbox, an optional extra that can be specified on either coupe or roadster variants.
Lotus officials were thrilled about October sales: “We have just recorded our strongest October since 2009 for sales which demonstrates the demand for Lotus cars, but we also acknowledge the strong global demand in new markets. There is incredible potential for growth in the Middle East, China and ASEAN countries, where the automatic option for the Exige is anticipated to stimulate customer demand further.”
