Lotus Exige Coupe 2016 Auckland for sale
Asking Price: $110,000
This lightweight car makes it a fantastic lightweight sports car for adrenaline-hungry enthusiasts. Easy to drive, its performance fully exploitable even on a greasy track or wet roads because you feel so intimately involved in what the car is doing. The Exige has a very safe set-up. The 'Race' mode of the Lotus Dynamic Performance Management stability control gives you enough leeway to explore its potential, while maintaining a safety net if you overstep the mark.
The Exige does not share the endless gadgets and features of a modern performance car. There aren't many options remaining for the true purist driver, but the Exige is one of them, retaining just enough daily usability to make it work as a single car, while delivering the kind of track-focused precision no rival can touch.
Because it's light you could pound round a circuit all day long without fear of wearing out brakes or tyres too, making the occasional track day well within its capability without any concerns about expensive consumables. While it would be a waste to buy an Exige and not do this every now and then it's also a compelling road car, two apparently disparate attributes few cars manage to successfully pull off. But that's the Exige's beauty - it makes no apologies for being an out-and-out enthusiast's car, and for that, and its ability to live up to the brand DNA of delivering more performance and less weight, it remains a breath of fresh air.
