The new wider, bulkier Exige
After taking in that large (carbon-fiber?) fixed wing, let your eyes  move down to the mammoth, multi-level rear diffuser fitted to this test  car. The entire rear looks wider  than before, even the taillights have a cleaner and more integrated  design. A true rear window has also been fitted, which should greatly  improve rear visibility.

2013 Lotus Exige
According to our sources, many of the design changes are due to the Exige moving to the same chassis that can be found under the Evora 2+2.
The Exige will likely share the  same normally-aspirated and supercharged versions of the 3.5-liter V-6  found in the Evora and Evora S. Based on the performance figures of the  current Evora, the lighter Exige should have no problem zipping to 60  mph in 5.0 seconds or less.
