If you know anything about the Lotus brand, you know that it is a brand of car designed primarily for performance and handling in race track conditions. Small cockpits and minimal interior features are not particularly friendly for every day driving. The Lotus Exige S Roadster, while not an exception to the rule, does offer a few features and advantages that make it slightly more pleasant for laid-back cruising as opposed to hard corner racing.
The first of these features is the soft top retractable roof. The open top definitely lends itself more to country highway cruising than it does to taking tight turns on a closed loop track. Furthermore, the curvy body of the Lotus Exige S Roadster has a classic European look that is simply begging to be shown off in public, rather than hidden on a private track. Finally, the Lotus Exige S Roadster has remarkable fuel economy for a convertible sports car.
Race Track Driving with the Top Down
Quite literally, the Lotus Exige S Roadster has the same performance specifications as the coupe version, with the single exception of a top speed of 145 miles per hour, due to the limitations of the soft top. This means you can enjoy the experience of a track performance race car while feeling the wind blowing through your hair. It makes the Lotus Exige S Roadster particularly exciting to drive. The one thing to keep in mind is, while this is an exciting vehicle to drive, it isn’t particularly practical. It is a vehicle that exists to show off and to really enjoy the road, not to provide functionality. If you are looking for a fun vehicle that offers a modestly laid-back race car driving experience, though, this is your ideal choice.
