Stunning example of the flagship Lotus model finished in glorious Aubergine Purple Metallic paintwork. The Exige weighs just 875kg and has a mid mounted Toyota 1.8 litre 2ZZ-GE engine with 6-speed close-ratio manual gearbox that produces 189bhp as standard. Launched at the Geneva motor show in 2004, the S2 Exige has almost as much horsepower as the raw VHPD version of the S1 Exige, but with a notable improvement – the dependability of a Toyota-sourced engine.
Just two previous owners from new, HPI clear and full Lotus service history. Recently featured in a well known car magazine.
The condition of the exterior is excellent as the car was fitted with paint protection film from new. Incredibly rare Aubergine Metallic (Colour Code B102) which is a gorgeous purple in direct sunlight. This is one of four 2005 Exige cars painted in this colour and the only one fitted with the Performance Pack (all the others were the less extreme Touring Pack cars). Comes with a Certificate of Provenance from Lotus confirming this.
The interior and seats are as new – as shown in the pictures. The seat bolsters are not worn or ripped.
Optional Performance Pack Includes (only 100 Exige were equipped with this):
-Twin oil coolers
-Race seats in black Leather/Alcantara with harness loops
-Harness cross bar
-Schroth 4 point race harnesses (plus normal seat belts)
-Stripped back interior (no carpets just mats, carbon effect door inserts)
Air conditioning is also fitted (£1295 option) with recent re-gas and new auxiliary belt so it blows ice cold.
So what makes our Exige a cut above the rest on the market? This Exige has had some choice upgrades fitted with supporting invoices:
Carbon fibre side pods
Carbon fibre front splitter
Lotus Sport windscreen sticker
Alcantara trimmed door cards, gearstick and handbrake gaiter
Carbon effect trimmed centre section from Lotus
Alpine CD Player with iPod connectivity & wireless remote control
Paint protection film fitted from new
ITG Maxogen Air Flow System induction kit made from carbon fibre fitted by Hangar111
Milltek stainless steel exhaust system including sports catalytic convertor fitted by Thorney Motorsport
ECU Reflash Remap completed by Christopher Neil Lotus
HID headlight conversion fitted by Sinclair MotorSport
The wheels are the original factory specification items in excellent condition. They are Satin Black 16-spoke forged lightweight alloy wheels with the favoured Yokohama Advan A048 high performance tyres (16” front & 17” rear).
The last service was less than 1,500 miles ago, at 46,405 miles and included the spark plugs and brake fluid change.
The car comes complete with the original Lotus handbook set, Exige manual, fully stamped service book, Lotus invoice folder of all work, all previous MOT certificates, two sets of keys & Cobra alarm fobs & the Lotus Certificate of Provenance.
MOT until June 2017 and six months warranty included.
