2011 Lotus Exige S260 Roger Becker Edition 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
The Exige is an amazing car that Makes you forget about any shortcomings when you take the next corner. Mine is not a daily driver, and although I love the car there are days you need to carry passengers and cargo. This car is incredibly light weight and a type of car I fear may be dissapearing forever as cars continue to grow in size and weight and even lotus themselves is talking about transforming into a Ferrari competitor with much heavier cars. Although cliche, this car really is a useable go-kart for the street.
Exterior design, handling, absolute driver focus.
This is THE car to own if you want to be able to say you owned the best handling car of this generation.
Better electrical system QA and more 'kinks' worked out.
Immediately after purchase my car had to make a few unexpected stops to fix some electrical problems that made it past the factory checks.
None affected the fun factor of the car - but did require a trip to the dealer which can be difficult considering how few of them there are.
