2012 Lotus Exige headed to U.S. as track-only car
As you may recall, the expiration of a smart-airbag exemption given to small volume automakers as well as difficulty sourcing a new powerplant (the 1.8-liter Toyota engine used in previous models ceased production) conspired to keep the Elise and Exige from American roads after the 2011 model year.
For those interested in a track-only car, the DuPont Registry indicates American that buyers will be able to take advantage of the vehicle's Dynamic Performance Management system, which provides drivers with three traction control settings. An additional Race Pack system may also bow with the vehicle, providing handy tools like launch control and suspension settings pre-dialed for most tracks.
Sounds like fun.
