      Lotus Cars has taken one of the most recognisable and iconic Lotus colour schemes from the early 1970s and reintroduced it 
      for the first time with the limited edition Exige Sprint.
      Just 40 right hand drive Lotus Exige Sprints will go on sale in the UK and Ireland in a duo-tone paint scheme of Aspen White 
      on the lower portion of the body and a choice of Solar Yellow or Persian Blue on the upper portion of the body. 
      The two colours are separated by a gold stripe bearing the name Exige Sprint on the doors on either side of the car.
      To celebrate the start of Lotus production at Hethel in 1967, just 40 cars will be built for the UK market and each one will 
      have an individually numbered chassis year build plate covering 1967 to 2007, except for 1982, the year of Colin Chapman’s 
      untimely and tragic death. Each car will also come together with a heritage pack containing a unique certificate signed by 
      Lotus’ Chief Executive Mike Kimberley and “The Lotus Book” written by William Taylor featuring in depth reviews of the 
      models produced at Hethel. The Exige Sprint honours the colour scheme of the legendary Elan Sprint, which entered 
      production in early 1971, 37 years ago. The design was adapted from the red and gold and white colour scheme of the Team
      Lotus Formula One sponsors at the time: Gold Leaf Tobacco. Other colours were also introduced including the blue, gold 
      and white and yellow, gold and white, both of which are honoured on the Lotus Exige Sprint.

      The Lotus Exige Sprint includes as standard, ultralightweight forged alloy wheels, air conditioning, Sport Pack, 
      Touring Pack and the newly available Performance Pack giving phenomenal acceleration of zero to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds 
      (estimated), reaching 100 mph in just another 6 seconds (estimated) before topping out at 146 mph. 
      The Sprint also features a unique interior trim with distinctive embroidery and exterior decals.
      Even without the unique paint and trim features that the Exige Sprint benefits from, equipping a standard Exige to the same 
      specification would cost a customer £44,050 (MSRP), so the £42,550 (MSRP) for the Exige Sprint provides superb value for 
      performance. Mike Kimberley, Chief Executive for Group Lotus plc said, “Back in 1970, I was working on the Elan Sprint
      with a team of talented engineers led by Tony Rudd. It was a car that at the time was virtually unbeatable on a quick 
      country road dash. The Elan Sprint with its sophisticated and elegant colour scheme was my particular favourite of the 
      Elan range and it is fantastic to see the colour schemes being reintroduced for this limited edition of just 40 UK cars. 
      Of course, being more than just a colour scheme, we are offering the driver an unparalleled Exige driving experience in a car 
      that will, in a few years time, cement itself into the Lotus legend”.
