You Know You Want One
Okay, the initial hype is making my head spin, but damn this car is hot. I’ve always loved Lotus, but the Exige is in a completely different category than the Elise or the older Esprit. As for the Matte Black Final Edition, well I won’t be one of the lucky 25 to grab one, but a guy can dream. Now I’m 6’2″, so a Lotus probably isn’t the best idea for a man my size, but I don’t think the 275hp engine will have a problem sinking anyone into the driver’s seat. This car is brute muscle packed tightly into a sexy little body known as the Exige…
If Batman had a younger sibling, you’d better believe he’d be trailing his older brother’s Lambo in one of these. The Gotham taxpayers can afford it, right? At $69,000, this limited edition special is one cool car for the money. So which would you have, a gas guzzling 8-cylinder E550 or this efficient 4-cylinder Exige? I’ll speak for both of us and say that I’d hop in the roadster, find a road worth driving on and let her rip. All day. All night.
To the 25 charmed owners, congratulations. You’ve grabbed yourselves a piece of automotive art, and with that comes responsibility. A precious paintjob like this deserves attention and care. Luckily, for Final Edition owners and anyone else with a matte finished car, there’s a premium solution for your car cleaning and detailing needs.
