tonydim7 Congrats on the purchase. I actually got a chance to see the car before you picked it up at Gator Motorsports when I was passing through Indy. That Chili Red color is awesome!

JGalt The WTB post which started this thread resulted in a purchase of the pictured track-centric, Chili Red '07 Exige S. Thanks to others who offered their cars, but my experience was that there is a dearth of available Exige S's.

Judging by how well-received the car was at my Porsche Club of America track day, the Exige's exceptional track capabilities are well-known outside the (very helpful) LotusTalk forums...and could make for continued demand.

I was looking for a car well-kitted out for the track, and this car has a nice list of modifications.

A testament to Gator Motorsports matching me to the right car for my needs, I had the car on the track, Palmer Motorsports Park in western Mass., within 36 hours of it arriving by enclosed transport.

I had great pleasure working with Brian (GatorMS_Sales) and his expert team at Gator Motorsports. I hope to do business with them again, but what does one move on to in the Lotus marque after any Exige S, I guess a Cup car...

tonydim7 Wow, the Chili Red one from Gator Motorsports is already gone. I can't believe how fast these things move (I'm looking for an '07 too). Good luck with your search.

jds62f Funny, Those are (just about) all things that would push me away from a car I intended to put on the track.

Of note: same transmission is in all cars, so upping the HP is pushing a transmission designed for a 180 hp econobox that much harder.

JGalt Thanks James. There is indeed a big price gap between the S and S240. The argument made to me for the S240 includes: traction control, better front brakes, 240's are rarer, and a better look from the roof air scoop. Still, that's a bit expensive for those items, when, as you note, upgrades quickly get you to 240hp on the S. Thanks for the advice and still debating the choice myself.

jdell67 Best of luck - keep an eye on the for sale forum.

I think there is one or two for sale right now.

Not sure of your financial situation or spending limit, but I would advise an 07 Exige S. The extra cash that the s240s bring may not be worth it for a track car (20 hp is easy to extract from an 07, especially considering you will be tracking and modifying). Post pics when you get one!

WTB: Exige S or S240

WTB: '07-10 Lotus Exige S or S240

Seeking Lotus Exige or Exige S with 30,000 or less miles.

Intending to track the car, so cosmetics need not be those of a garage queen, but do value clean mechanicals.

Modifications are tolerable, possibly desirable, given track intentions.

Prefer Northeast-located car to facilitate inspection and transportation to its new home in Boston.

Color not a priority, but my wife is the final arbiter on this one matter.
