    Kestus: 19:43

    We bought this rare supercharged Lotus Exige S240 without inspecting it and discovered that a few things were broken. So in this episode, we bring in some experts to inspect the car properly, fix anything broken and find out what mods have already done. While we're at it, we install an epic upgrade!

Check the "lift" bolts if you haven't already, just to be sure. It's very easy and it will save you a lot of trouble if they happen to break. I love 2zz engines!

I think racing games like NFS are what made me think lotus was a cheap, garbage supercar because they'd always be on the starter or slower end of the cars

Simply installing two-pot rear calipers won't balance the car's braking. Does the brake plumbing have a balance valve? If not, perhaps it should. You can muck up the braking to "out beyond radio" doing things without fully considering the results.

It’s so common to watch YouTube videos with “experts “thar are just people spouting their opinion who don’t really know what they’re talking about. These two guests know their stuff. Wish they were on my side of the earth. ;) Take this from a fellow S240 owner, you must take that car to the track, that is where it really shines!!

Not a supercar, it can't do 200mph (321kph). They guys from Lotus stand there and say "If you like engineering, you like Lotus". Yeah thats true, very very good handling cars. But enter the ELECTRICS, and mirrors out of a Vauxhall, then the "engineering" went out the window. That was the huge complaint about Ferraris in the 1980's that they took parts from Fiats like the dash vents and shoved them in Ferraris. Then came the F40 and F50 supercar to compete with the Lambos. Maaaaaaaaan, you can't put a Lotus Exige in the same class as an F40 Ferrari OR LAMBORGHINI Countach or Diablo - ITS NOT A SUPERCAR! Stop calling it a supercar, its not in the same class as a Porsche Carrera GT, Ferrari F40, F50, Enzo or LaFerrari. Or Lamborghini Countach, Diablo, Gallardo, Murcielago. Or Pagani Zonda etc etc the list can go on. 200mph straight out of the factory, THATS a supercar. Who was this journalist that said it was a supercar? Its a bonded (glued) aluminium tub, with bits from Vauxhalls ....vi sa vi ENGLISH KIT CAR! Caterhams and Westfields buildem in ya GARIDGE! Not that there's anything wrong with building a kit car. The Ultima is a kit car you can build in ya Garidge, with supercar performance .......ah supercar performance, yes 200mph +.

I don't have this fancy one. Cut a long story short my wife wanted a cheap convertible replacement for a 1000quid purchased price MGF vvc which I really liked . At that time we also had a fancy Merc coupe and a Lancia Integrale Evo2 and a shopping car. We had no debts and a few quid in the bank so I thought (8 years ago) SLK 55, to my brain this was the car. She blew off about the petrol costs. The only alternative viable option was an Elise. So we bought a N/A Elise ZZ1 touring (leather seats and carpets). I loved it. A few mods and it was awesome. I have mates with supercharged cars and to be honest, I wouldn't flip it. Gonna keep this gem. You don't have to go mad with these. They don't depreciate and when you hit tight twisties a modified integrale Evo2, Lambo Hurricane will have no hope. You also can afford a service, brakes, tyres and fuel.

Had an s1, great fun and I don’t work in it. your arse is 9in off the ground, 30mph feels like 60, so do the math on what 120mph feels like! Sprinters, weekend cars, not for everyday or long journeys, but amazing fun for he money. Because of the lack of weight they are very good on fuel consumption if you can keep your foot of the go faster peddle.
