However, the mix of members’ funds lightweight lab engineers, designers, Ruth and Brian accounts of the Lotus production line said fresh eyes helped find ingenious ways to make their cars lighter and lighter yet . The new 2016 Lotus Exige is the result of laboratory sessions. Replaces the Exige S, and the name of the 2016 Lotus Exige is not only a reference to the output of the engine power of 350PS (345bhp), but also a nod to the past, and Esprit Sport 350 1999. Ah, yes, the past. Since its creation in 1950 by Colin Chapman, Lotus has had more ups and downs of an expedition in the Himalayas. He was raised, as winning championships seven manufacturers in Formula One in the 60s and 70s, and a Spirit unit soon to see with James Bond at the wheel. And there were casualties, including owners of the company of succession, a shortage of F1 titles and a clear lack of blockbuster James Bond.
Exterior and Interior
The 2016 Lotus Exige is the living meat, focused and funny, with many commitments you expect. With a low ceiling and a thick screed fan towards the foot and entering the cabin 2016 Lotus Exige is complicated. Once inside, the feet are greatly biased towards the transmission tunnel, as the position of Queen Elizabeth on one side on horseback. Yet it is a pleasantly minimalist environment and ride comfort. Suspension seats are lower and hardly padded but supportive and surprisingly comfortable; the tiny steering wheel does not fit, but does not seem to matter, and the manual transmission is less than a foot away from his right hand.

The new model 2016 Lotus Exige adheres to the exact same recipe as its predecessor: there is a supercharged 3.5L V6 behind the seats, a six-speed manual (or optional automatic) gearbox in the rear wheels and everything is built around the signature of the aluminum chassis of the company. All numbers just for you? Let’s add some context. Consider another medium engine, two-seat sports car six cylinders that have to do with the reduction in weight and have a good time behind the wheel.
