The original Exige (NA or naturally aspirated Exige) was launched in 2000 and had a 1.8#160;L Rover K Series engine in VHPD (Very High Performance Derivative) tune. It produces 177#160;bhp (132#160;kW; 179#160;PS) at 7,800#160;rpm in standard form. [ 1 ] There was also an uncatalyzed track spec version with 192#160;bhp (143#160;kW; 195#160;PS) available. The car has a five-speed manual gearbox, and a claimed top speed of 219#160;km/h (136#160;mph). The sixty mph sprint came up in 4.7#160;seconds, while 4.9#160;seconds meant 100#160;km/h on the clock.

Lotus Exige Series 2

In 2004, the Series 2 Exige was introduced. It features a naturally aspirated 1.8 L 16-valve DOHC Toyota /Yamaha engine that produces 190#160;bhp (142#160;kW; 193#160;PS) with the Toyota engine designation of 2ZZ-GE. [ 3 ] Compared to the Series 2 Elise, it has a front splitter, fibreglass hardtop roof with roof scoop, rear engine cover, and rear spoiler. The sole purpose of these aerodynamic additions to the base Elise is to create more downforce (almost 100#160;lb (45#160;kg) of downforce at 100 miles per hour (160#160;km/h) in the Exige versus 13#160;lb (5.9#160;kg) at 100 miles per hour (160#160;km/h) in the Elise). [ 3 ]

In February 2005, Lotus announced a limited production run of 50 Exiges, using the Toyota engine with a supercharger. that increases the power output to 243#160;bhp (181#160;kW; 246#160;PS). These vehicles were only available in yellow or black, representing the colours of Lotus Sport, and are badged 240R. They have a projected 0-60|mph (0–100 km/h) time of 3.9 seconds and 0-100 mph (0–160 km/h) of 9.9 seconds, with a top speed of 155#160;mph (249#160;km/h) at a cost of £44,000.

The North American Exige was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006.
