Just an hour drive from the glowing excess of Las Vegas we recently had the opportunity to drive the latest offering from Lotus
. The Lotus Exige S 240 is much like the standard Lotus Exige S but with 20 extra horsepower producing zero-to-60 mph sprints under four seconds. An open race track, several hours of cloudless Nevada autumn and the transcendental handling of Lotus' featherweight Exige S 240 made for a truly blissful experience. The flashing lights of Vegas may impress the unwashed masses, but for a car guy few things shine as bright as the Lotus Exige S 240.
