Gather round, dear fellows, and let us tell the sad, sad story of the Lotus Exige and the Nurburgring crash.
Once upon a time, there was a mighty british sportcar that traveled across many countries to reach the foretold land of speed and power. Its name was the Lotus Exige, and its power was drawn from a 1.8-liter supercharged engine.

As the Exige was still young, it did not know how to properly handle the corners properly and became a victim of the dreaded crash barrier.

The barrier demanded a high toll on the car, damaging a good chunk of the very expensive rear panel. Hopefully, the chassis was left intact.

This accident took place not in ye olde times, but on July 13th, this Saturday.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
