Exige v F355 in Autocar mag

Recommended Posts

Little surprised this has not already been mentioned here? In this weeks Autocar (UK) there is a 4 page comparison of the new Exige v classic F355. Both now at the same price/value. The Lotus fared very well.

That's a peculiar comparison! I'll look forward to picking up a copy, thanks for the heads up. :lol:

... and the second time is as many weeks: cover of Motorsport has "Lotus - Britain's own Ferrari" thumbsup.gif

(although given all the recent staff changes it could be an anagram of "Ferrari owns Britain's Lotus" :) )

Any chance of a link to this article being put on here for those of us in those parts of the world where one can't buy Autocar at the shops?

I don't think I'd want a 355 as everytime I see one now I'm trying to figure out if it's an MR2 in drag.

I had a 355 back in the day and I thought it was a fun car and no one ever mistook it for a MR2 unlike people asking who makes Lotus ?


I think it's fast enough…maybe

I'm sure he's still telling people the same story about how he made you feel that way!

Everyone just assumed it was a Toyota Ronin...they just never said anything to you! :rolleyes:


Marge: Homer, I don't want you driving around in a car you built yourself.

Homer : Marge, you can either sit there complaining, or you can knit me some seat belts...
