Lotus Exige spied Best pictures yet of hot track-focused sports car with rumoured V6 power
Here are the clearest shots yet of the all-new Lotus Exige.
Unlike previous pictures we get a clear look at the 2012 model, which appears to be almost entirely new from the B-pillars back. At the front, a revised Evora-inspired face is evident, while at the rear is a new wing and tailight arrangement.Â
From these shots we can also see that the new Exige appears to have an altered roofline, slightly wider track with a longer back than the current model.Â
As for the power it’s believed a new V6 engine will be chief amongst the changes, adopting the same engine found in the larger Evora. That would mean a 3.5-litre V6 producing 280bhp in standard form, with 350bhp in the S version. Â
The Exiqe hasn’t been produced for the European market since December 2010 when its 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine fell foul of emissions regulations.
Its likely all Lotus models – Exige, Elise and Evora – will benefit from these styling changes for 2012, with attention also focused on interior quality improvements.
The new model is likely to debut in 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show, going on sale shortly after.Â
