Produced from 2006-2011, the Series II Lotus Exige is a sports car offered in 2 door coupe and roadster body style. Replacing the Series I, the Series II has a front splitter, roof scoop, and redone aerodynamics, allowing the vehicle to hug the corners in increasing downforce.
The Matchbox Lotus Exige is based on the S version, which replaced the regular Exige and was in production from 2006 to 2011, powered by a supercharged engine supplied by Toyota. It made its debut for the 2006 mainline for the 1-75 series under the sub series of MBX Metal in Pearl Mustard Yellow. The casting has a number of MB706 and was in production from 2006 to 2014 when it was discontinued.
Zooming through the scenic mountain pass, you can think of no other vehicle you'd rather be in than your powerful Lotus Exige. With unrivaled handling and the ability to go from 0-100 mph in 11.5 seconds, your Lotus Exige is truly an example of pure driving bliss!
