Profile

To introduce the Exige to a worldwide market the new generation model replaces the traditional Rover K-series engine with a new 'emissions friendly' powerplant courtesy of Toyota (and soon to be found in sister model the Elise) . The 1.8 litre engine outputs around the 190bhp mark and so matches the previous model giving broadly similar acceleration times but this time with a more linear delivery.

Track day performance will be awesome thanks to the barely road legal slick cut tyres but road driveability is not compromised due to the welcome introduction of air con and abs brakes. However, the Elise offers 95% of the Exige's performance and is a more practical day to day proposition. More power would give the Elise the advantage it needs.
