No but I'm pleased it's back to basics - do we do best!

Wow in that first Lazer blue pic in side profile you can see the extra length of the chassis. It really looks like a GT racer if you ask me!!

White Exige S Roadster on the right hand side which I didn't spot first time around.

That's a cup car without spoiler, not a Roadster.

So, if the roof panel on the coupe can be removed and the wing can be deleted, what's the point of the roadster, which I guess only comes with a soft top?

Doesn't really need a point, they're the same price - just personal preference.

A good set of images on my dealer's site including this one with the roof off:

Ganz genau.

Huzzah to the blokes on the Hethel assembly line who are making this happen, despite all the doom and gloom pervading the air.

 

:unworthy:

Here's some proof that you can live in Scotland and drive an Exige V6 in winter.

 

The car is Murray's demo: Aspen White with Race Pack, Diamond Cut Wheels, Convenience Pack, Parking Sensors, Air Con and Heated Seats.

 

Forgot to ask whether Brandon switched on the heated seats on the way up?

 

Taken from the LEGS meet on Sunday 6th January:

Did the guys from Murray mention how the corsas behave in cold - but maybe dry - weather ? (how cold was it really?)

The weather was around 7C (hence us Scots had our shorts on ;-) )


Brandon did not mention that it was slippery but did not ask specifically. Car was also being ran in so would have been limited anyway.

I keep forgetting it has heated seats! Haha...so didn't try them out to be honest. Assume it works much like the Evora on/off switch which normally takes a minute or two.

 

We are still running it in so can't give a fair assessment on the tyres just yet. Overall though, the car feels much more planted than the S2. Have had loads of confidence in its handling, and equally as important, haven't been shy taking it on some of the worse roads around Edinburgh. What a massive improvement to the dampers/springs!

 

It is a beast...so I am being very respectful!

Hi Brandon

My question is if the P Zero corsas would be ok for driving around in a normal way in dry cold weather, esp 1 - 5 C from your experience (because I have the corsas on my Evora also, of course I know that for that temperature range winter tires would be better but I am just thinking of some miles in dry weather so that the car does not stand still that long in the winter months)

We haven't had that cold of tempratures here lately, but I suspect Lotus would suggest the same percentage of traction is lost below 4 degrees. Kind of a standard answer so apologies...until I can compare first hand it's tough to say.

 

To go on a bit about the traction control system though, it is so advanced I'm not sure how best to explain it. As it has been somewhat damp for us lately, it's plenty of fun to drive in Touring Mode with exhaust valve switched open. It can be pushed beyond what would have been the ‘breaking point’, and the car can correct itself. Just incredible the amount of confidence we have in this Exige!
