Top Gear drives the Lotus Exige V6
Final damper fettling of the new V6 Exige needed an expert touch. So why did Lotus send for Top Gear?

So, the new Exige. Well, the central aluminium tub hasn't changed, but the rear subframe has. That's because, instead of supporting a small four-cylinder, it now has to cope with the 3.5-litre supercharged V6 from the Evora S. This means the Exige is no longer such a small car - the new one is wider, longer, and, yes, heavier too. By about 170kg, which in Lotus-land is a lot.
