2005 NY Int'l Auto Show


Concept Cars Lotus Exige,  It means 'demanding,' in French, and Group Lotus is counting on some of the most picky U.S. buyers to plunk their money down for the new Exige Coupe. The pint-sized hardtop shares its platform and most of its mechanicals with roadster Lotus launched last year, the Elise. That includes the Toyota-derived, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine making 190 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. With a stiff suspension based on Elise's performance package, the Exige is being aimed at potential buyers likely to want to do some serious racing, or at least log occasional track time. Every body panel, but for the doors, is new on Exige. The roof can be removed, though not easily, since it's designed to improve aerodynamics. So is the new front fascia, as well as the big rear wing. Add it all up, says product executive Simon Croft, 'and it's like having a baby rhino sitting on your roof at 100 mph.' Yet while the coupe's top speed dips 2 percent, to 'just' 147 mph, the Exige's 0-60 times match the top-performing version of Elise, at 4.7 seconds.
 The Exige is expected to generate just a couple hundred sales a year, but every little bit counts, according to Kim Ogaard-Nielsen, the new CEO of Group Lotus plc. Since the launch of the Elise, 1800 copies have been sold in the  U.S., which is expected to generate 50 percent of total Lotus sales. That's despite the automaker raising prices for the base roadster from the initial $39,900 to $42,900.
