This super clean Lotus only has 5k miles on the odometer and is a S240 which is one of the rarer Exiges released in the states.
Elise and Exige models are pure sports cars that are small, lightweight and have moderate power levels that are more than enough to grunt on road or the track. The Exige S240 had an increase of 20 hp over the regular Exige for a total of 240hp which was enough to cover 0 to 60mph in 4 seconds!
This Exige is Aspen White which is 3rd favorite color behind Aubergine purple and Chrome Orange, the interior is a classic black and like a true sports car the cabin is very sparse. The passengers sit close together towards the middle and have to shimmy over a large side panel to enter the chair which probably can’t be done gracefully.
To save weight Lotus chose not to carpet the interior and most of the materials are aluminum and plastic. A trick traction control unit was added to the S 240 that lets the driver set how much slip to allow from 11 being completely off turned off for the daring or the experienced.
I think the Exige is one of the best looking cars of the past decade with its small proportions and aggressive looking roof scoop that forces air into the mid-engined rear hatch. This one has been optioned with the Track pack that upgrades the shocks to adjustable Bilsteins and the Touring pack that adds full leather interior, sound insulation and an ipod connection.
From the seller:
I’m tinkering with the idea of selling the Exige and picking up a dual clutch car.

The car is immaculate, no issues what so ever. This is my 4th lotus and 2nd Exige. I’m the 2nd owner and it has been garaged in a climate control garaged.
