Agree, looks great from most angles. I'm sure it would be a lovely thing to own and maybe even the better car for road driving. If only I was grown up enough to realize that being restricted to 145mph might even be an advantage in the real world!

.....but sometimes you have to drive faster.....and it is fun......... And let you concentrate on the main things......

I agree the grey Roadster looks stunning and it will make its way in the markets!

yep, when I read this kind a review, I don't recognise at all how thrilling it is to drive an Elise, let alone an Exige roadster. I feel they are either blasé as they drive great cars on a daily basis or they are simply not petrolhead and can't wait to find another journalist role in a office in London to write political reviews or so!

Well, Top Gear's 'journalist' might have the sort of enthusiasm for exciting cars which if it were a colour, would probably be 'beige', but Kimi Räikkönen evidently thought the Exige S Roadster was pretty cool. I know whose opinion on performance cars I give most credence to ...

Hmmm, read the review and thought it was quite good, can't see what you are all complaining about? I read it after testing the coupe today so perhaps it made more more sense to me and I didn't see any negatives in there, all seemed positive. Perhaps I need to read it again.

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Could well have been me. I think it was the "there is no point to the car" that got my goat. To me a road going V6 bigger more powerful Elise has got to be something people will want.

Yet we can’t think of a car that would be faster on a UK road, including the McLaren 12C, Porsche 911 Turbo or Ferrari 458 Italia. The relatively compact dimensions of the Exige S Roadster, its bullet-like acceleration and the sublime chassis make it an extraordinary car.

Buy one.
