2010-lotus-exige-s-260

Unveiled at the Auto Salon in Geneva, the new 2010 Lotus Exige S 260 is the latest (and fastest) evolution of the company’s hard-core Exige marque. Featuring a restyled front end that focuses on better airflow, with bigger air intakes and a larger rear wing that adds stability, the race-track inspired vehicle is not just a visual treat but also a powerful one. With power coming from a Toyota-sourced 1.8-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine that develops a good 260 hp, it looks like a hugely expensive toy that wants to prove a point. Going on sale in the U.S. this fall, it’s definitely a toy that we’d love to play with. [via Jalopnik]
