About the Lotus Exige One-2-One

The Lotus Exige is a big step on from the Lotus Elise but still follows Colin Chapman?s design philosophy.

The all aluminium monocoque and light composite bodywork is propelled by Toyota's powerful and high revving 189 bhp engine. The rear wing and front splitter produce real down force which can be felt on the fast sweeping corners at Thruxton circuit.

The Lotus Exige is an intensive driving experience. Your instructor will help develop your driving skills as you enjoy your time behind the wheel. We guarantee you will notice a big difference between the way you drove on the first few laps and the last.
