2008 Lotus Exige Values

For 2008, the base model Lotus Exige has been discontinued, and the more powerful Exige S 240 makes its debut. The 2008 Lotus Exige S is a 2-seat, high-performance coupe that also comes in S 240 and S Club Racer trims. The Exige S sports a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with 220 hp, while the Exige S 240 features a larger roof-mounted air scoop, which forces more air into the supercharger, resulting in 20 additional hp. However, Lotus estimates only a 0.1-second improvement in 0-60 time. The 240 also gets bigger brakes, bringing it to a stop with super-precision, and all Exiges get a new gauge cluster with trip computer for 2008. If you have ever dreamed about owning your own race car, the 2008 Lotus Exige S is an easy way to make your dreams come true and is perhaps the most popular "straight from the factory" performance car on sale in the US.

As a street-legal, race-worthy car that will get you nearly 30 mpg if you treat it right, the 2008 Lotus Exige is in a league of its own. Lightweight, powerful, agile, and extremely quick, the Exige allows for blistering driving in nearly any condition. The addition of the even more powerful S 240 only ups the ante in the track-toy game, while the Club Racer goes all in.
