Lotus Exige S comes with an automatic transmission option

The British sports car manufacturer has announced that both the Exige S Coupe and the Exige S Roadster will be offered with an optional six-speed automatic transmission, found also in the Evora IPS, along with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. For the auto option, clients will have to pay extra €2,185 (£2,000).

The company also said that when equipped with the automatic gearbox, the track car manages to be 0.1 seconds quicker when accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h, with the sprint being completed in 3.9 seconds. However, both variants had the same lap time when running on the factory test track.
