This month’s winner is this stunning Laser Blue Exige S1 courtesy of photographer Mark Lacey. Whatever it is about the Exige S1 that has already made it a Lotus classic, this picture captures it in spades. The combination of raw, road-racer appeal and taut, muscular curves make for an endlessly photogenic subject. But even among the many great images out there, this one stood out. The colour helps certainly and Mark has captured it beautifully, along with the sky – which was all captured in camera, not ‘comped-in’ as many people assume.
It was taken for Hilton and Moss on an access road leading to their premises in Essex and the Exige S1, in this colour, remains Mark’s favourite Lotus. For a current TVR owner, that’s showing surprisingly good taste ;).

Many thanks to Mark Lacey for his permission to use the image. Let’s hope he’ll point his lenses at some more Lotus cars in the near future. Until then you can see more of Mark’s stunning work on his website here.
