    Looks practically the same as the old one with a new alcantara/carbon trim.

    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    a couple of photos I took at the IAA :

    L1010547.jpg

    L1010546.jpg

    L1010543.jpg

    L1010550.jpg

    Tire size have increased from 16/17 to 17/18 and the Exige comes fitted no longer with Yokohamas but with Pirellis

    L1010549.jpg

    same cabin as before, but more pleasantly trimmed

    L1010558.jpg

    Personally I think the design is very good. It looks much better in real than on the photos. I also think that the price is very interesting. It will hopefully get good reviews by the press.

    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    Although this chassis is 10" longer than the 4cyl Exige, I imagine the cabin height (headroom) is unchanged?

    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    I looks amazing, and like every Lotus its probably incredibly fun to drive.


    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    Wow it looks stunning especially in all black! 3.5L with this weight will be a shit ton of fun

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Yes Grant, you are correct. The cabin height is exactly the same.

    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    wowser, that looks amazing!  It's a long time since I had an my elise 111S mk1 but this could tempt me back to Lotus when I'm ready to sell the Aston, probably in about 18mths. Been looking for something to get excited about that cost a lot less than the V12V and this might just be it!

    I like it better in white, in black the details that set it apart get lost.

    Too bad - my torso is too long for an Exige with helmet...

    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    another nice pic from the side

    e3ed4792.jpg

    Lotus DPM (Dynamic Performance Management) is an addition to the standard car from the entry level Elise 1.6 upwards and will offer stability not only when pressing on but more importantly when conditions change and road surfaces are incompatible with high levels of grip.

        Hydraulic Brake Assist – will detect emergency braking and increase braking if required to ensure maximum possible braking is used if required.
        Electronic Brake Distribution – will enhance stability by limiting rear brake pressures if the ABS is close to being activated when not required.
        Electronic Differential Lock – will ensure that if there is a road situation which leads to a wheel with less grip spinning then braking force is applied to this wheel to allow torque to be sent to the other wheel which means better cornering performance and acceleration on surfaces where one wheel can grip and the other cannot.
        Cornering Brake Control – is there to help when the car is heavily loaded at the front under partial braking and oversteer comes into play. The system will reduce brake pressure on an inside wheel or increase the braking pressure on the outside front wheel before the car becomes out of shape.
        Drag Torque Control – Too fast off the throttle or a snatched downshift can lead to the engine braking the wheels too quickly causing slip or oversteer if cornering. This innovative system will apply partial throttle to ensure stability.
        Anti-Lock Braking – is a common system on cars nowadays to reduce brake pressure if available braking torque is more than conditions allow to ensure that the shortest stopping distance possible is attained under all road conditions.
        Traction Control System – ensures no wheelspin under heavy acceleration.
        Vehicle Dynamic Control – will apply subtle brake pressure at the required wheel when the car becomes unstable.

    This all adds up to a more stable car which can be driven harder when circumstances permit while keeping the car under the drivers control. They also add greatly to the safety of the car when the weather isn’t ideal and hopefully will mean bodyshops don’t see so many cars with requirements for new front clams, an all too common repair to the Elise. Die-hards will be pleased to know that most of the elements of DPM are switchable (apart from specific brake functions).

    The good news is that the Lotus DPM is free, there is no extra cost involved!

    Re: Exige V6 rumour

    EXIGE S UPDATE: It just came back from our Hethel test track and we can reveal that during final testing its lap times have been compared to the Mk2 Exige Cup 260.

    The new Exige S is up to 5 seconds a lap faster then the old Exige Cup 260.

    2012 Exige S, Trofeo tyres, Lotus DPM in Race mode: 1 min 32.68 seconds

    Exige cup 260, Yokohama A048: 1 min 37.90 seconds
