Let me know if you'd like to see your car in print, ideally a Coupe but a Roadster will do the job nicely.

 

Pop me a PM if so and I'll let you know all the details :)

Team, I have the Lotus exige s v6, see attached pictures as a sample, they were taken by a local guy, they look great and if you need the originals high res. I can get them.

Those are some beautiful pics but the mag needs the car to drive and they have their own photographic style. Welcome to TLF and thanks for sharing :thumbup:

Umm could be an interesting opportunity, but I've only just hit 800 miles and don't want it thrashed. Drop me the details though ;)

Welcome to TLF Dave and Kuruma. :welcome:

 

S4Simon would add you to the Australia map if you haven't already. Duck over to the Introductions thread and say hi in there as well. :)

 

Lovely looking car. Bibs request is probably for the UK unfortunately. :(

Offered my car to them and they accepted. Spent Thursday and Friday with them last week. Got to drive the triangle and spend the day at Anglesey with them. Was good couple of days and interesting to see how much actually goes into putting a feature together.

The exige was well received by all of them ( it was the evo car of the year in 2012 after all!) and I got the impression it stood up well to the competition.

Great group of guys and you can tell they are passonate about what they do which is great to see.

Won't spoil the feature but here's a wee sneaky pic from one of the locations

I'm curious. Were all the other cars loaned by owners or have Lotus given up loaning them cars?

They just didn't have one available at the time, or they would have.

Naturally the car was sent back to the factory and geo checked etc.??.. I know that every Lotus press loan normally has this done. Great that a customer could step in though, but odd that Lotus don't have one on the press fleet.

I'm sure the winning Porsche would have been carefully 'fettled' for the occasion!

Lotus are going through a lot of changes just now and don't have a press exige V6 anymore (been around for 3 years or so now remember)

Car wasn't sent back to factory for geo. I fitted new rear tyres prior to heading down and I should have changed the fronts at the same time as it did effect the handling slightly but the exige was still the fastest car there.

The Cayman they had there did seem to go well and sounded great and to be fair was very impressive car so I wouldn't be surprised if it was the favourite of the bunch
