It’s hard to think of a car that screams ‘take me to the track’ more than this stunning 2006 Lotus Exige touring. This original Irish Linders supplied Exige was delivered to Linders by Steve Crijns, chief designer at Lotus.
The Laser Blue bodywork and black wheels give the already purposeful design of this Series 2 Exige an even more aggressive look and, despite its small packaging, the car has a huge presence.
Having covered just 43k miles in the last 17 years, the car is in immaculate condition and has been meticulously maintained as the full service history illustrates.
Some upgrades have been fitted to the car in that time, too. On top of the factory upgraded Touring Pack (electric windows, A/C, a new Blaupunkt radio, carpets and sunvisors), this Exige is equipped with those amazing factory sports seats. On top of this a factory soft top is complete with the car.
The car has also benefitted from a recent servicing and Geometry set up from one of the previous owners and Lotus guru Pat McBennet. Along with this 2bular twin pipe custom exhaust was fitted, a new rear diffuser and a new front diffuser.
And speaking of the engine, the high-revving 1.8 Toyota engine may not seem impressive on paper with its 190bhp. But, with the signature lightweight of a Lotus, this Exige is blisteringly fast – hitting 60mph in 4.7secs and a top speed of 147mph! Coupled with the legendary balance, grip and handling, the Exige is one of the most rewarding cars you can drive on the road…never mind the track.
This well know Irish example has only 4 previous owners, a large history and two sets of keys. A remarkable car that will leave you wanting more every time you park it up.
