We know it’s winter in many areas around the world, but the folks over XCar found this weather perfect to test one of the more elusive convertible models: the Lotus Exige S Roadster. If we remember correctly this is one of the few reviews we’ve seen on this model, and this makes it even more interesting.
XCar finds the new Exige S Roadster to be an awesome car with or without the roof. So, apparently this model will have no problems putting other roadsters to shame, despite its 145 mph limited top speed. Then again, who is really doing over 145 mph on public roadways?
It’s no wonder why the guys over XCar were so impressed by this car. It’s got a supercharged 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that delivers a total of 345 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. With this amount of power, the Exige S Roadster goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and to 100 mph in 8.5 seconds. Not too shabby at all.
If only the offered it in the U.S...
