21,00 MILES





Service History









“Simplify, then add lightness.” This iconic quote from Lotus founder Colin Chapman was the ethos on which the legendary British sports car manufacturer was built. It’s a philosophy that brought the firm world renowned success on both the streets and the racing circuit and produced cars that deliver an unfiltered driving experience of unrivalled purity.

Compact, powerful and with razor-sharp handling, the mid-engined Series 2 Exige S is the very embodiment of Chapman’s ideals and represents the very last of the lightweight analogue sports cars to come out of the company’s Hethel-based factory in its illustrious 70-year history. As such it has become an extremely desirable and investable model for performance car collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Powered by a supercharged 1.8-litre Toyota-derived four-cylinder engine, the S2 Exige S delivers a highly responsive 242PS and 230NM of torque, which, in its featherweight bonded aluminium chassis, offers genuine supercar-rivalling levels of performance at a fraction of the cost.

This 21k-mile example, dazzling in a ultra-rare coat of unblemished Aquamarine blue paint – its impact areas protected from new with a professional application of paint protection film – is offered in an unrepeatable condition and specification making it a truly unique opportunity to purchase a genuine slice of automotive history.

With only one mature owner from just three-months old and complete with full Lotus specialist service history (including original purchase invoice), this flawless 2010-model is one of the very last Series 2 Exige S models to be registered. It also benefits from over £8,500 worth of factory options, including all three upgrade packages of Sport, Touring and Performance.

To find an example with this holy trinity of upgrades is exceptionally rare and endows this superb example with an enviable list of options including a Lotus tuned ECU-calibration, variable traction control, AP Racing front discs and four-piston calipers, a functional full-length roof scoop, leather ProBax sports seats, and a host of interior accoutrements that add refinement to the Exige’s cabin without detracting from its focused nature.

The only non-factory upgrade is the addition of high-end Nitron suspension. This offers even greater precision to the handling combined with a more compliant ride that perfectly complements the car’s road and race ready characteristics and serves only to enhance this model’s appeal even further.

Like all vehicles offered for sale by Automotive Addiction, the lustre of the Exige’s paintwork has been amplified by our market leading 40-hour detailing process which includes a multi-stage machine paintwork correction in our bespoke detailing studio.
