For 2007, Lotus addressed what most buyers thought was the sole weakness of the Exige--that 190 horsepower was not enough. They added a supercharger to the engine, and now it now makes 220 horsepower and 165 ft-lbs of torque. Since the 2007 model is more powerful, Lotus added an "S" to the name. Otherwise the 2007 Exige is unchanged from the previous year.
Extreme performance; excellent fuel efficiency; eye-catching styling.
The 2007 Lotus Exige is the ultimate in light-car performance, with unparalleled handling and an exhilarating driving experience. While it doesn't carry many comfort features or have much in the way of cargo space, it will carry two people very, very quickly. Its $59,890 base price may be more than $13,600 over the base Elise, but it's still a tremendous amount of performance for the money.
