Lotus Exige Facelift Coming in 2012

However, the company won’t make a leap between philosophies, choosing a step-by-step approach instead. In other words, prior to redefining who it is, a move that will include the introduction of a radically different-all-new range, Lotus will introduce modifications for the existing models.

According to autocar, before the carmaker hits the world with the new Esprit, it will give us a new Exige and will offer an important makeover for the Evora.

The company’s CEO Dany Bahar said that a new incarnation of the Exige could be introduced at the Geneva Auto Show. Sources from withing the company have confirmed that the Evora will be gifted with a comprehensive facelift next year. One of the areas that will receive the most amount of changes will be the interior. Lotus plans to enhance the vehicle’s all-round capabilities, so it will offer a higher level of quality and enhanced ergonomics.

And this is not all. Lotus is determined to make the most out of the Evora. The company recently introduced an S version, which relies on a supercharger to deliver serious thrills to its passengers and the company is introduced to introduce more new versions in the future.

We’ll remind you that Lotus recently said that it is considering building its own engines. The company could bring a new V8 powerplant to the world, which would be used for the new Esprit. In addition to that, the British carmaker could also create a fresh V6 unit for the Elan.
