Lotus Exige S2 Touring — This car is not for people who like to be comfy and cosy, there are some things that make this car akward but that little more exciting to own and drive. Getting in and out is a fine art, Ladies- it'll take you time to master being in heels and a skirt. Acceleration is rapid, twin cam Toyota VVTI engine 190 BHP power band - from 800RPM up to 8,400 RMP. 0-60 in under 5 seconds. This car though fast does lack punch in strait lines unless you use the gearbox and engine hard. Cornering is imense, very very little body roll - This is where the car makes up for the lack of strait line speed out cornering most cars with ease. Model has ABS, Manual steering and manual door mirrors Replacing the stock intake with a cold air filter and a stage 1 Exhaust adds torque and throttle response not to mention added engine roar. The touring pack model has padded seats, air con and sound proofing to reduce engine and road noise in the cabin. You can also have the sport pack witch provides seats ready for a racing harness, no carpets or sound proofing - to save weight. Fuel tank gives you 10 Gallons - About 320 miles to a tank (normal driving) easily cut that to more like 100 if tracking the car (or less)

Pros: Looks, Handling, Feeling when driving the comunity of Lotus Drivers.......

Cons: Getting in and out - but thats an ok price to pay ;)

You Don't Notice There's No Radio Or Air-con 'cause Your Having Too Much Fun. — Drives like a go-kart, looks like it was made by the gods. I had this one for a few weeks which as the pic suggests is a race car with plates. It had only one race seat, with a harness, and a cage. There was also a tricky exhaust, ecu, intake, suspension etc... which added to the fun.

Pros: Very fast, will out handle anything.

Cons: Noisy, uncomfortable on long journeys.
