The new Lotus Exige S made its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but the first unit has just left the assembly line today. With that, Lotus has also promised that the first customers will experience this exciting new Lotus very soon.

The new Exige S is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine that delivers a total of 345 HP. The sports coupe will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 170 mph. Unfortunately, US customers will only be able to take advantage of the track version of the Exige S.

"We are very proud of the Exige S. It marks the first step towards consolidating and then growing the company. I know that customers have been eagerly waiting for this car, and I assure them that it will be worth the wait. We wanted to be sure that we had a product that was absolutely ready before launching it. We are confident that the right time for the Exige S is now," said Lotus Chief Operating Officer, Aslam Farikullah.

Great car. Making its way to Frankurt Motor Show is a good start for them to show that they can build a good supercar.
