Lotus promised to “blow the top off” in a E-Mail received in preparation for the Geneva motor show. That is exactly what they did… We were all expecting a chop-top model of some sorts and our bets were placed upon it being a convertible Lotus Evora. We were wrong as what sits on the show stand right now is the Exige S Roadster.
Based upon the brand new Exige S, the 3.5 litre V6 can now be enjoyed in alfresco variation. With 345BHP and 0-62MPH time of 3.8 seconds as well as 0-100 in 8.5, the Roadster appears to be just as potent as the roofed model. Top speed sits at a very respectable 145MPH.
