A source at Lotus sent me this image of what the all new Exige 360 S will look like, here are the specs.

360 HP twin turbo V-6
294 Lbs torque

0-62 MPH @ 3.7 sec
1/4 Mile @ 12.3

all Carbon!! :D

What is up with the squinty headlight look on all their cars? Looks like an angry Japanese cartoon character. Can't argue with the specs though.

Looks like all the other new models, lol.

That said, guess I'll be buying a new car in 2015 ^_^

Wow. I might have to start saving money. Wonder how much it weighs and cost.

Wow, that's one mean looking car. I'm probably in the minority but I happen to like the new Elise design the most and this new Exige works for me as well. With a new Exige that looks and performs like this, why would you put out the new Espirit (in its current form). It seems to me their financial prospects would be better served by moving up the new Elise/Exige platforms to first in the batting order and then putting out the Elan with 2+2 option. It's presumably much more affordable and will keep the whole network in business in the meantime. This way Lotus can always own the sweet spot for which I know them for (lightweight, affordable, performance). I'm really excited about the Exige development.

I do have to admit, the Exige treatment on the Elise concept car looks fantastic in this rendering, hopefully Lotus takes some of these cues to production with the S3 Elise.

Got renderings of other angles?

Wait... It has like an extra 100 hp and 120 ft/lbs of torque than the S260...

But it goes only .2 seconds faster to 60 miles per hour?

What's going on?

My car is already that fast. rotfl I'm sure others are faster still...

No way it will be all carbon. Not only does that say it's pretty heavy, but will be expensive. Doesn't look bad though.
