Lotus Exige S Type-72
December 23, 2009Posted by on
Lotus today revealed their tribute to…..themselves, for returning to the F1 grid next year: The Exige S Type-72.
It’s nothing more than a special painted edition of the normal Exige S (so the 220hp 1.8 Liter Toyota-sourced engine remains the same), however MY GOD it looks good! It’s inspired by the Lotus Type-72 which dominated Formula 1 in the 1970s, and the black and gold theme just sort of works. Lotus is building 20 for the UK market, and 20 for international export. The price for admission is £35,995 or 40,332 euro. No word if us Yank’s are getting a piece of the pie, which is a shame really. I’ve actually had the chance to drive a normal Exige S, and I love it. It’s motoring in it’s purist form. And if I wanted an Exige, THIS is the one I’d get, hands down!
