Raw performance, agility, unparalleled ride and handling. These are attributes that people have come to expect from Lotus and the Exige S is no exception. 

Just traded is this 2015 Lotus Exige S finished in Ardent Red with premium black leather interior and contrast red stitch. With OziCozi Stoneguard Film applied to the entire front-end of the vehicle as well as factory-fitted side sill paint protection vinyl, this Exige S presents itself in good condition for its age. Sold new and serviced regularly by the number one Lotus specialist in the country, this Exige S is a credit to its owner and a fantastic opportunity for any new buyer. (000YEA plates not sold with vehicle).

The standard Exige S has a dry weight of 1176 kg and produces 345 bhp at 7000 rpm from its Toyota 3.5 L V6 engine. The Exige S is regarded by many automotive enthusiasts as the epitome of power-to-weight. With a standstill acceleration to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h, this Exige S is bound to generate exhilarating driving experiences like no other.

However, this Exige S has been fitted with our aftermarket TVS1900 Supercharger designed and engineered alongside Harrop. This is a direct bolt on replacement to the factory fitted TVS 1320 supercharger, which is on the limit of its operating efficiency window. Given its significantly higher capacity, the TVS1900 makes use of a bigger pulley to produce higher pressures and achieve lower intake air temperatures than the OEM set up. Power output is now closer to the 400hp mark and all the striking aspects of the vehicle, such as acceleration and responsiveness, have now been heightened to whole new level.

The supercharged V6 makes a world of difference to the character of the car. It's a strong and reliable engine that provides constant and linear power outputs with plenty of torque across the rev range. Even when cruising in higher gear ratios, the Exige will feel just as responsive as when it is being driven more spiritedly.

But the Exige S, similarly to its second-generation predecessor, was not designed and engineered exclusively for straight line speed and outright power. Although overall performance has been increased, this car truly comes alive in tight, twisty corners where its lightweight chassis and perfectly balanced steering wheel make it both nimble and direct. Its driver-focused cabin allows you to do just that - drive! And, the six-speed manual transmission (also Toyota sourced) is a joy to use, shifting between gears and hearing the exhaust burble at every opportunity.It does become quite addictive.

This Exige S has also been equipped with the Dynamic Performance Management system, which includes as option; Race Mode. This feature allows the driver to use Launch Control, override the exhaust bypass valve, and optimise suspension to suit the vehicles perfect weight distribution. A set of 4-pot AP Racing calipers are also fitted to contain the copious amounts of performance that this car has to offer. And, the fact that Exige is light on its feet also means that consumables such as rotors, pads, suspension and tyres all benefit in terms of longevity. Believe us when we say that there is nothing worse than going through a set of pads, rotors and tyres on your first track day or spirited drive.

This Exige S offers the best of both worlds: super-car performance and looks with reliable and affordable running costs. It is the perfect match!
