The Exige weighs just 875kg and has a mid mounted Toyota 1.8 litre 2ZZ-GE engine with 6-speed close-ratio manual gearbox. Launched at the Geneva motor show in 2004, the S2 Exige has as much horsepower as the raw VHPD version of the S1 Exige, but with a notable improvement – the dependability of a Toyota-sourced engine.
Will come with 6 months warranty included (extendable).
