A few edited down clips from my test drive in the new V6 engined Lotus Exige S.
Sorry for the poor image quality in places and the squeaks and rattles at low-speed (caused by a combination of my cameras IS system and the suction mount rubbing).
A few links for those who want to skip bits.
Start of test drive: 0:35
Low speed noise: 3:00
Motorway cruising noise: 3:40
The Lotus Exige S is powered by the Toyota 2GR-FE engine with Harrop HTV 1320 Supercharger.
Many thanks to Bell and Colvill for the loan of this car for an afternoon.

Lotus has taken its recipe of lightness and power to the extreme by fitting
the 345bhp 3.5-litre supercharged V6 from the flagship Evora S into the
lighter, more focused Exige.
The result is the Exige S. It's the only Exige you can now buy, and is
longer, wider and more aggressive than ever.
Our resident racing driver and senior road tester Owne Mildenhall put the
car through its paces on the road and on Lotus' famous test track.

video road test review.

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
Exciting Ride in a Supercharged Lotus Exige on Track!
This is my friend's Lotus Exige S specially prepared to be used on track!
Hope you enjoy the ride in this ultimate track weapon at Varano de Melegari

Lotus Exige V6 Cup - road car vs race car - autocar.co.uk
Lotus is on its way back, and the proof is the Lotus Exige V6 Cup - both in
street trim, the Cup S, and the Cup R racer. Steve Sutcliffe puts them to

For most people, the standard Lotus Exige V6 would surely represent the
ultimate kind of sports car. It weighs little more than a box of feathers,
its interior is quite extraordinarily uncluttered by unnecessary luxuries,
and its supercharged Toyota V6 engine provides it with enough grunt --
345bhp -- to embarrass all but the most ambitious supercar drivers. Sutters
travels to Lotus' test track in Hethel to drive the Exige V6 Cup S road car
and the Exige V6 Cup R racer.

Top Gear Live 2013 - Lotus Exige S + Stig's Powerlap!!!
This day as I went on the Top Gear Live 2013 at the Sunday Eastern Creek
Raceway, I've filmed a brand new 2013 Lotus Exige S for the first time, as
I took a film on it's exteriors including the interior, I also filmed the
real Top Gear's Stig takes a drive on the new Exige S around the track on
the Sydney Eastern Creek Raceway, and the Lotus Exige S did it in 1;14.1 on

2013 Lotus Exige V6 Cup vs 2012 Nissan GTR - Silverstone GP.
On a dry track this time. An interesting comparison between two very
different approaches to achieve a similar result.
Don't look for continuity, there isn't any! It was all taken from the same
camera so at different times of the day. I was driving the GTR, plus the
Exige for all the in-car shots.
As I was driving the GTR I know that it was flat-out in race mode down the
Hangar Straight so the difference between the two cars in a straight line
is what you can see in the video - there's not much in it. Not bad going
for a 345bhp car to match a 550bhp monster!
Best comparison for straight line speed is at 3 minutes down the Hangar
straight. You're seeing roughly 60 mph through to a little over 130 mph.
The GTR is standard.
SELOC - Lotus Exige S Track Test
SELOC - Lotus Enthusiasts - http://www.seloc.org
When we were offered the chance to drive the new Exige V6 on Lotus' private
test track we knew it was an opportunity too good to miss, so we took along
a track novice, a long term Elise owner and a race driver to see what
people across a range of experience levels made of Lotus' latest car.
The result was astounding, with us all leaving highly impressed.
