FOR SALE: The ultimate S2 Exige, one of 55 UK examples and just 15k miles from new.
Starlight Black metallic paintwork, RGB numbered plaque (No. 71), Roger Becker signature decal, Performance pack, Sport pack, Touring pack, ProBax sports seats in black leather, Monochrome bonnet badge, Air conditioning, Traction control, Forged rims in satin black, LED rear lights, Alpine CD player with iPod connectivity, Cup holder, Leather transmission tunnel, Electric windows, Push button start, Alarm, Immobiliser, Tracker, Exige floor mats, Spare key.
For such a small car the S2 Exige has colossal road presence. The gleaming Starlight Black finish of this limited number example presents with a gorgeous metallic flake and barely a blemish in sight. At the front end you’ll be hard-pushed to find a stone chip, and along both sides the delicate fiberglass panels all remain in excellent condition. The stealthy aesthetic is accentuated with forged rims in satin black along with plenty of aerodynamic features that create huge downforce at high speeds. A total of just 15 UK-supplied cars were produced in Starlight Black.
The crisp cabin space remains feeling fresh throughout. The lightweight ProBax seats are upholstered in soft black leather with minimal wear. Leather trim extends to the transmission tunnel and gearshift/handbrake gaiters, all of which are damage-free. Looking further there are no unsightly blemishes to any of the exposed metal areas; even the passenger footrest is unscathed. In fact, aside from some expected but discreet marking on the driver’s doorsill cover, there are very few imperfections to report. The footwells are still protected by the original Exige carpet mats.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Sat beneath the sizeable intercooler is the Toyota VVTL-i (Variable Valve Timing and Lift - intelligent) engine. The supercharged 1.8 produces close to 260hp and is capable of rocketing the Exige from zero to sixty in little over four seconds. The engine compartment is immaculately clean with all components in excellent fettle. The car performs faultlessly and has been serviced seven times over its 15k miles.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Exige sits on 17-inch ultra-lightweight forged rims in satin black. They remain in very good condition all round and are shod in a matching set of quality Yokohama tyres, each with ample tread remaining. The RGB also boasts AP Racing brakes for unbeatable stopping power on test. The calipers look great in black and present without any lacquer peel or damage to the finish.
The Lotus was first registered in March 2011. It was supplied new by JCT600 and has since covered a mere 15k miles. Despite its limited usage the car has been serviced annually, with the exception of 2016 (just 1,686 miles were driven between the services in 2015 and 2017). Present in the History File you’ll find the Lotus document pack with all dealer-supplied manuals. Also included are invoices, past MOT certificates, vehicle history checks, correspondence from Lotus, stereo instructions, and documentation relating to the tracker. The stamped service record is as follows:
