 2014 Lotus Exige S owner review

The Night Slasher purchased this Lotus Exige new for $139,000 (including all on-road costs). The Night Slasher wouldn't buy this car again because: "Already had three of them, now keen on the new Emira. Had my day with the Exige and it will be a long treasured memory. The car, while it looks amazing, is quite dated inside and after a few years it can be a little finicky in terms of reliability if you don't use it often enough. That said, it's the perfect track day car with a price tag that blows most other makes and models out of the water."
