Description

Want to drive the kind of car that turns heads everywhere you go? Well... this is it! The most head turningist (is that a word?) car you will ever find right here. A bright yellow, race-ready, custom Lotus Exige S, tuned to 300 hp and put on a diet, bringing it in at 1700lbs. I could list all the enhancements done to this vehicle, but really, you're here for the show, not the details. This is the lightest, fastest, quickest car you will ever have a chance to drive, without question. The bright yellow draws your eye, the HID lights signal class, the LED tail lights light up the night... but the sound is what will keep you coming back for more. This thing is a monster. You have to see it's swooping lines in person. Hear it's exhaust note. Oogle its full carbon fiber interior. Marvel at the hydro dipped carbon fiber wheels. I'd say listen to its awesome sound system, but let's be honest... you can't even hear it when you're driving, so don't bother. This is a 6-speed manual transmission vehicle. You MUST be an expert level manual transmission driver to rent this vehicle. It is NOT for people just learning or new to manual transmissions. Clutch was replaced approximately 2 years ago and has less than 2000 miles on it. This is a race car, and the clutch is a racing clutch, so very difficult to operate, be prepared for that. This vehicle takes ONLY premium fuel, and you must replace with premium fuel when returning the vehicle. The car will not run properly on non-premium fuel.

Deluxe class

This exclusive car has additional safety checks for guests under 30.

Parking details

There is no on-site parking at this location. If you need to leave a vehicle, please contact me prior to arrival and I can direct you to parking locations nearby.

Guidelines

This vehicle has a very low clearance (approximately 4") and thus needs extra care when going over bumps. You will be responsible for any damage to the front end or wheels of this vehicle and it is very expensive to replace. Please be cautious when driving this vehicle.

Faqs

  • Does this car have power steering?

    No! The Lotus Philosophy is "What can you do without?" - anything non-essential for driving is removed from this vehicle. There is no power steering or power brakes. There is no AC (but the heater works great, even when you don't want heat!). Window washer fluid? Forget about it.

  • What about revving the engine?

    I'd prefer you don't. There is a rev limiter, but revving the engine while it's cold can damage the cams and other interior engine parts. Please do not rev the engine or hit the limiter. Do NOT go above 4k RPM while the engine is below 180C as indicated on the dash.

  • What is the shifting pattern?

    The shifting pattern is a standard Eurospec 6-Speed pattern. Reverse is in the FAR upper left (pull the ring) - 1st gear is upper left, 2nd is lower left, 3rd is upper middle, 4th is lower middle, 5th is upper right, 6th is lower right.
