Lotus called it a night for the current generation Exige by unveiling two special edition models - the Exige S260 Final Edition and Matte Black Final Edition - but that doesn’t mean the brand’s engineers are getting a break. Just last month, the next generation sports car was caught testing covered in questionable camouflage and now our spy photographers have captured new images of the Lotus Exige with more mind-numbing coverups. We can’t wait for the 2013 Lotus Exige to be unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show just so our heads stop spinning from these psychedelic wraps.

These new spy images reveal a little more of the Exige’s future design language, like the new front and back of the vehicle. The future model will also benefit from a new rear wing on the elongated back end, a tidbit many of us anticipated when we heard that the new Exige would be borrowing elements from the Evora. The roofline also looks different from the current Exige.

As previously reported, the 2013 Exige will be powered by the same V6 engine as also found in the bigger Evora. So expect to see a 3.5 liter V6 producing 280 HP in the normal version and 350 HP in the S version. This engine will be combined with bigger brakes that, of course, suggest improved performance numbers.

This Lotus Exige as the sports car need a strongest engine that can match to performance of the car. I don’t like the graphic design as the exterior design of the car.

Wow! Another Lotus Exige that is really worth waiting for! Well, I must say that I’m so excited on its official outlook but knowing that its engine is still weak just like their other vehicle. I must say that I would as yet prefer to have a Ferrari.

The picture above is really a teaser! Well, just like them, I’m also can’t wait for the official outlook of this Exige. However, I don’t think that V6 could already be good on it.

Wow! I love the design of this Exige, very artistic and give the unique appearance on this one, but I’m too disappointed on its poor engine performance. It didn’t fitted on this sports car.

Very dressed up, It irritates my eyes, I guess it will be much better if its just plain black, or silver black or red. Its annoying design.

I want to see the body and the chassis of this car and i want to know the performance of this car. But i like the design of this car.

I’m not sure if they have modified the back end of the car. I really can’t wait to see the removed camouflage for this Lotus Exige. I can’t wait to know the changes made on the car. However, I’m just sure of its power output is fairly speedy.

Glad to see that they have used the previous platform of the car. I think they are kind of serious in hiding the detail of this newer version. Well, the speed performance of the car really is incredible.
