foto of the day. Exige.

In light of today’s excitement with the ‘neu’ Alpine photos leaking, I’ve found myself considering what cars have carried the torch while Alpine has been away.  The list is quite short, and what i’ve come to realise is that the Lotus Elise/Exige is basically the only car I can think of which truly carried the functionality and purposeful design in the manner in which Alpine did.

In summary…do want! especially in yellow.  I drove one several years ago, and found it to be extraordinary to drive.  There wasn’t much practicality, and as i’ve been told by a couple people who have owned them—the fiberglass body makes it quite tough to repair.  But as a 2nd or 3rd car, I can’t think of another modern 21st century car that would be as enjoyable and as fascinating.
