Agreed! I hate the back end on that car. It's too square and unshapely compared to the previous Exige. I like d'em curvy rears, ya know?I'm still trying to warm up to that thing. Not liking how much bigger it is than the previous one, and still not liking the back end.
Wonder if the new Lotus owners will consider mailing them out over the pond to us?
Just curious, not that I'm considering one, but did he say how much?I spoke to one the local Lotus guys - well known track dude - and apparently he has one on order that will wind up in the Midwest.
Don't know how he McGyver'd it, but from all accounts, there will be an Exige S in the States soon...
of course you are correct, but this is nothing new.I can't understand how I could go out and build a hotrod or a kit car with essentially no crash protection and get it licenced but I can't get a car from a manufacturer that has full airbag & crash structure engineering built in and is for all intents and purposes the same as the car from the preceding year on the road. Yeah I know they had a period of exemption to bring the bumpers into the low speed crash spec and they didn't (never had any intention of doing so I don't think). I don't know how hard Lotus tried to get an extention or a waiver for the new Exige or if they did the math and figured that they would not sell enough in North America to warrant the costs.
I think there would have been a bit of interest in the car here, how much I don't know. I would have been in line for sure. Anybody Else? Assume a cost of $90k.
I guess it's just the latest victim of the goverments war on fun.
