Well - After 7 months, it was definitely worth the wait...  Went for a big drive over the weekend (Sunday) out through some of the windy roads outside of Melbourne (Australia) - Kinglake, Toolangi, Healesville and then down to Mount Dandenong, then finally looped back to head back to the city up beach road...  

 

Roads were still damp, but drying, so it started as pretty easy going...  However that quickly changed after I started getting a bit more confident with the cars grip levels...  Even on the Pirelli street rubber (not the trofeo's), the grip on damp roads is phenomenal.  Obviously can't really explore the limits of grip on the street, so will be keen to get out to the track ASAP...  Will be doing a track day in a few weeks time.

 

One things for sure though, I had a grin from ear to ear all day.  Having driven a number of exotics (458's, 911 Turbo/GT3, Aventadors, SLS, 12C's etc), this is without a doubt the best steering of any of them.  I was worried about the shifter given all the complaints I'd seen, I quickly got used to that too and it seems great 1st->4th, 5th and 6th are a bit "meh" though.

 

Only minor gripe is the clutch - seems if you give it more than a few hundred revs off idle it wants to "stink" up, guess I'll just have to manage my driving accordingly.

 

Oh - and have some new rattles, but will get them sorted out when I put it in for first service.

For anyone thinking about getting one - I say do it.  It's definitely not a daily driver, but as a driving event, it's pretty epic.

Had a quick look at the Imageshack and cant really see how that site is supposed to work? I use Photobucket.com 

 

On the right there are 4 links to share the image. I always use the 3rd one down from the top. 

 

Any probs PM me.

Your wish is my command, I was up at B&C yesterday, and took a few pictures...

 

(but have run out of upload space, so unless someone gifts me some more, this will have to do :) )

Well if you're going to play like that....

 

If anyone's interested, more pictures are over on the playground, where no such faffing was required...


[Nice auto-substitution - MMC ;)]

Well, did my first trackday in the new toy yesterday...  Perfect weather for it, sunny, not too hot (12-15C), and most importantly, dry.  Sandown Raceway (in Melbourne)...  The Exige ran like a champ... 10 minute sessions, no sign of brake fade, tires going off, or any other issues...  It certainly knows how to drink petrol - final tanks consumption was 103.2km, 40.89L.  Worth it though.

 

Took it easy to start the day, left the car in tour and just got a feel for it (only 450kms on it when I showed up), switched to sport mode after lunch as I found the traction control pretty intrusive in tour after a while and enjoyed the extra revs, noise and slip angle which it allowed.

 

It's got Race mode, but given it's my first RWD, Mid Engine car, I thought i'd ease into it...  Best for the day (which was one of the three laps in the vid below) was a 1:25:5522.  Car is stock and on the pirelli street tyres (not the semis).  There's definitely another few seconds in it, need to work on corner entry speeds and lines through some of the corners, as well as getting more confident in the brakes and lateral grip.

 

It's an amazing car, and definitely at it's best on a race track...  I was grinning from ear to ear the whole time, the car is just so confidence inspiring.  Lotus, you've done a great job with this!

Excellent Video, I definitely heard the tyres squealing on a few occasions so you certainly weren't hanging about :)

 

I'm hoping to do my first track day soon once my V6 arrives, I can see this becoming an addiction.

That really is a stunning colour.

 

It is funny how certain colours suit the Exige better, I would never have considered that colour but it just looks absolutely amazing :)
