For Sale 2006 “V2 Motorsports Built” Lotus Exige
This is my personal car. This car has been fantastic to me but I just don’t have time to use it anymore. So now it’s time for someone else to enjoy it. I just can’t stand seeing it not being enjoyed to it’s fullest. If you want to fly under the radar this is not the car for you. This car sure catches the attention. The car has 12,910 miles on it. It sure does not show, it looks like a car with only 2,000 miles on it.
The car is extremely clean and well prepared. I built it as the ultimate track day car while maintaining it as street legal. Safety was a premier focus of the car while it is on track. Next we focused on durability. I did not want a track toy that would be undependable when I was trying to enjoy it. Lastly we focused on grip and handling to maximize what the cars platform could provide. We did not go with forced induction because we did not want to sacrifice any of its dependability and cost to maintain. Lastly we wanted it to look the part. I believe we nailed it all with this car. So you can drive it to the track in the morning, Have fun all day on track, drive (with the A/C on) to the car show on the way home and bring home a trophy. Then pick up Chinese before getting home ☺ What more can you ask for?
I took a customers Lotus to Autorama car show and it came home with a trophy. This car is much nicer that his was.
Any time I have had it out for a track day it has always been the fastest car of the day. I can say giving a point by has never been experienced when I was driving the car. This is by far the best handling Lotus I have ever driven. It is very easy to drive fast. No scary twitchy tendency’s as with so many out there. Just smack the throttle to the floor and it sticks and goes. Throttle lift over steer is very easy to control and used to rotate into the turns. It is just a treat to drive fast. This is the car that I used to develop all the V2 Motorsports products for the Lotus.
