Will there be any run out specials?

Recommended Posts

Wondered what the view was.

do you think Lotus will do anything else with the Exige or is that it?

You would expect some run out editions, but new management have shown zero interest in the current range to date. Each Evija sale is worth many Exiges and Evoras in terms of revenue so I guess the focus is on that. I heard some rumours of some minor tweaks but nothing has shown up. I don’t think we’ll hear much before next year now.

I spoke to someone from Lotus HQ who told me there will be one or two special editions to celebrate upcoming anniversaries for the Elise and Exige.

I’ve been told there will be a small update to utilise some Volvo parts in the exige but nothing of note, not more power for sure so it will be minor stuff which made me push the button now on a 430.

I was waiting for someone to clock me skulking around...

Im looking. Ive had a bit of time to look around at other things but the outlay on an exige just cant be argued with. Just hope i get one that has been built well

From what I have seen of the new models (haven’t seen a new 350) 410/430 the build quality is much better. I guess happier staff......

Agreed.

Little things, like, the door closure, i tested a 2019 car recently and the mechanical shut was much much better than my 2017.

I noticed panels were much better aligned without the need to add extension plates everywhere.

Yeah that was naughty for them to say no When the chargecooled versions were clearly in planning. Feel sorry for those who bought the cup380 as that was basically cup430 money.

the saving grace here is that the gearbox can’t take more power with them happy to give a warranty and I can’t see them developing a new one now, new models will be hybrid ala the new amg cars (and most others).

i think any last editions will be like the type25, type49 versions they made.

for sure they can’t possibly fit any more carbon on it 😁

I got mine at a great price so either way I’m a happy man.
