2012 Lotus Exige S Roadster – Official Photos and Info [cardvd-player.net]

2012 Lotus Exige S Roadster

Continuing to defy predictions of gloom, doom, and imminent demise, Lotus has added a fresh-air option to its hitherto hardtop Exige coupe.

Unveiled at the 2012 Geneva auto show almost as a subtext to the Formula 1 resurrection of 2007 world champ Kimi Räikkönen—he’ll return this season in a Lotus—this new al fresco Exige is more targa than a true rollback convertible.

A hole in the roof will seriously compromise the aerodynamic downforce that’s given previous hardtop Exiges such surefooted grip in fast cornering. Nevertheless, with the top popped, fresh air can be summoned at hair-raising velocities. The new Exige S roadster is propelled by a supercharged 3.5-liter V-6 borrowed from the Evora toolbox, and which necessitated a longer wheelbase than that of the now-discontinued four-cylinder models. The engine is mated with a six-speed manual transaxle as standard equipment, with Lotus’s Serial Precision Shift six-speed paddle-operated automated manual optional.

Lotus didn’t provide any output numbers for the Toyota-derived V-6 as employed here, but it generates 345 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque in Evora S tune. So it’s reasonable to expect spectacular performance. Lotus confidently forecasts 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and 0 to 100 in 8.5, which are much quicker than previous four-cylinder editions of the Exige could muster.

With dynamics to match the increase in output—Lotus is confident about the handling, too—this Exige S roadster nears the cusp of supercar territory. As with the capabilities, we can expect pricing to soar. Lotus had nothing to say on this topic at the Geneva reveal, but the S roadster is certain to overlap the bottom end of Evora pricing. It won’t matter to us, though: The Exige and its Elise sibling have been discontinued here, so this roadster won’t roam our streets any time soon.
