  1. The stars were in alignment on Monday night for the European premier of ‘RED 2’. The Empire cinema was the venue for the much anticipated premier of the sequel to ‘RED’ (Retired Extremely Dangerous) and the excitement from the crowds was tangible. London’s Leicester Square was transformed to stage the exclusive VIP spectacle with a red carpet stretching across the iconic London hot-spot. The assembled fans went crazy for Hollywood hard-man Bruce Willis and his on-screen love interest Mary-Louise Parker, and Britain’s own Helen Mirren simply sparked on the red carpet. All three cast members took time to sign autographs and take interviews to promote action-comedy penned by the hilarious Hoeber brothers. The premier was screened for a ‘by invitation only’ audience attended by celebrities, contributors and media. We had the opportunity to send two lucky competition winners along and they trod the red carpet alongside Brit award winning band ‘Blake’, singer/songwriter Katie Melua, BBC’s Sarah Jane Crawford and singer/model Leah Weller all of whom were in the audience. All who saw the film commented on the pace, the laughs and the incredible stunts; what was clear though was that the car was the star! The sequence with the Laser Blue Exige S was a real stand out with many commenting that the scene where Mirren’s character Victoria holds twin Glock 34's and fires out of both windows during a 360 degree drift as their favourite moment in the movie. We agree! You can judge for yourselves on August 2nd when the film goes on general release.
  2. The supercharged 3.5 V6 Exige S secured the top honour from evo magazine’s ‘Car of the Year’ test, marking the huge achievement of the entire Lotus workforce. Weighing-in at 1176kg, capable of reaching 62mph from standing in 4 seconds and with a power to weight ratio of 293bhp/ton, brimming with 400 Nm/295 lb ft of torque (@ 4500rpm) – the Exige S* really is something special! Scrutinised by evo’s panel of experts and pitted against the best offerings to the sportscar market this year, the Exige S ties with the Pagani Huayra for first place in the toughest test in the industry. Battling against nine opposing candidates to make the top six selection in a high octane shoot-out on road and track, and then taking on the giants in the final round on some of Scotland’s finest driving roads, this couldn’t be a more exciting win for the “gorgeous Exige S”. Richard Meaden, motoring guru and evo contributing editor remarked on the Exige S “I adore its looks, its presence. It’s like a little shrunk-down, condensed, distilled supercar. And I love the fact that when you’re on the road and going for it, it just takes off.” The evo team clearly felt the spirit of the Exige S, and in turn waxed lyrical about its attributes. Lotus is incredibly proud of the Exige S, and even though the calibre of this year’s competition was immense, it could not top the Exige S. The Alpina B3 GT3, Toyota GT86, Mercedes C63 AMG Black and Morgan 3 Wheeler were also entered, but were eliminated in the first round. For the £53,850** Exige S to tie with the £820,000 Pagani is a massive accolade and illustrates just what amazing value for fun the Lotus powerhouse delivers. So, the Exige S really is a good as it looks! * Fuel economy figures for the Exige S mpg (l/100km): Urban 19.5 (14.5), Extra urban 37.2 (7.6), Combined 28.0 (10.1). CO2 emissions for the Exige S: 236 g/km. ** Price includes VAT and excludes on the road costs.
