My Exige Sport 380 is simply stunning. If I’m honest not my typical choice of spec for such a car, I would have usually gone for something bright, a yellow or orange perhaps. However in seeing the car in person I knew it was the one. Somehow understated, classy yet aggressive with the large rear wing, painted in a British racing green over tan leather interior & dripping in carbon fibre extras.. I was sold!

I’m still very new to the whole Lotus driving experience I can say that if you test drive one you’d better be prepared to want one! I’d thought about an Exige for a little while not knowing if it would be the car for me & with the shut down of Geneva motor show we decided to stay in the UK & put my mind at rest once & for all. I test drove another Sport 380 & was left wanting more, at that moment I knew I had my answer. I have never felt so comfortable instantly with a car & it gives me such a rush every time I drive it, a feeling that I can’t ever see fading.

Since having the car it’s been difficult as all my usual monthly breakfast clubs have been off & all the big events cancelled however it’s given me more chances to enjoy those random drives with no real destination. I love winding country roads & I’m very lucky to live in a place with plenty in the surrounding area. I had my first group drive experience with an invite from the local Lotus owners club members one Sunday evening. It was so great to be back out enjoying, seeing & talking cars again, the group were so welcoming & I felt at home straight away. I’m very much looking forward to future events in the car & getting the most from the incredible raw driving experience it gives! I’ve never driven a car quite like it.
