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.

The Mercedes SL has always been a dream car, but it's the range-topping AMG
versions that have regularly appeared on the driveways of the rich and
This new SL63 AMG is lighter, faster, more powerful and more efficient
than the old flagship, so could it be the best yet? New editor Sam Hardy
travelled to the South of France to find out.
The new SL63 AMG is powered by a 530bhp 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 and has a price tag of around
£100,000. Mercedes also offers a Performance Package, which adds another
£10,000 to the price, takes power to 557bhp and increases peak torque from
800Nm to 900Nm.
Stalking hot girls in a Renault Twizy - Auto Express

The Renault Twizy has split opinion with its stripped-back interior and
pod-like styling, but one thing's for sure: it's unique. So far, we've only
driven it on smooth tarmac in Ibiza, but now it's time for its real test --
on potholed city roads in the UK.
Our test car is a top-spec Technic model, which adds 'luxuries' such as
13-inch alloys and carbon-look plastic on the roof and dash. The scissor
doors are an extra £545, but are a must- have option for keeping your feet
dry. Whichever way you look at it, this is a back-to-basics machine.
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.

A return to Hethel is always a pleasure. Lotus' home always gives me a
little bit of a tingle in my 'yes' place and the chance to muck about in
the new Exige S amplified it to near pirapismic heights.
Y'see, when Lotus calls a car 'Exige' you know they're not mucking about.
Similarly, you know that you're likely to leave with a big grin on your
face. Of course, Lotus' current nomenclature means that adding 'S' to a
name means it's got a Supercharger too.
Which is nice.
The current car is the third Exige -- the first was based on the S1, while
the second was based on the rather delicious S2 and came with all manner of
engine tweaks. Anyway, compared to the new one they're... child's play.
Y'see, this one gets the 3.5-litre supercharged V6 straight out of the
Evora S. The result? 345bhp, 295lb ft, a top speed of 170mph and 0-62mph in
less 4.0seconds. All in a car smaller than R2D2.
On top of its silly powerplant, there's also the fact that it was developed
by Lotus -- that means it's one of the finest handling cars in the world.
It'll slide when provoked, but otherwise it'll grip like nothing else.
As well as having silly power and handling finesse, the Exige S boasts a
first -- traction control. The Dynamic Performance System, as Lotus calls
it, gives the Exige an electronic brain that not only stops you from
falling off the road, but can give you a faster lap time as well. Y'see, 'tour' mode
is the 'don't crash mode', 'sport' is best called 'hero mode' as it lets
the Exige's arse step out of line from time to time and 'race' mode -- it's
really clever. Race mode will learn the track you're on and will give you
access to its fearsome power when it thinks you're capable of using it --
no matter how hard your foot is pressed on the go pedal. A Lotus
development driver told me that in a race around Hethel a car ser to 'race'
will be quicker than one with no traction on at all... So not only is this
the most powerful Exige, it's also the cleverest.
The Exige is a car that fills its driver with confidence, it fires you from
A-B with such ferocity that you can't help but grin like a loon. To go
alongside the power, its noise is pretty incredible. You won't forget
there's a 3.5-litre V6 mere inches behind your ear in a hurry.
On track the Exige S will humble things twice its price and cars with
horses for logos. Driving it in the real world may be a struggle, but
you'll do it because as an experience it's simply brilliant.
