The fastest ever Lotus convertible, the Exige S Roadster, will arrive in
Australia a little later than originally thought. The small British sports car, featuring super car performance, can dash
0 to 100 km/h in four seconds, but it can't get here until next year!
Sitting alongside the Exige S and its race track variants, the Exige Cup and Exige Cup R, the Exige S Roadster will
complete the Exige line-up and enhances the track focussed collection by providing a new facet to the range.
Powered by the same 3.5L V6 as the coupé variants and weighing in at 10kg less than the Exige S at 1,166kg, none of
the exhilarating performance of the phenomenal Exige range is compromised, yet the driver is only ‘two clicks and a
roll’ away from cruising in open-top style thanks to the lightweight, factory-fitted manually operated soft top.
Delivering 257 kW at 7,000 rpm and 400Nm (295 lb ft) of torque at 4,500 rpm, the Lotus Exige S Roadster matches the coupé’s
mechanical performance but style takes an understated approach having shed its rear wing and front splitter to maximise
airflow over its sleek silhouette.
The Exige S Roadster is a suitable car for a ‘joy’ ride, enhanced by the purposeful roar of a V6 soundtrack.
Exige S Roadster is now available to order and full specifications and
pricing will be announced when the new model arrives in the first quarter of 2014.
