Set to go on sale in January 2015, the Lotus Exige S Automatic is currently in the final stages of testing and promises a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds quicker than the Exige S manual.

Regarding the price, Exige S and Exige S Roadster models will offer the automatic transmission for an extra 2,000 GBP in the UK and 2,185 euros in Europe, excluding local taxes.

Jean-Marc Gales, Chief Executive Officer, Group Lotus plc said, “By introducing a paddle-shift, we have expanded the Exige product range to make it more accessible to customers worldwide. Now, customers who are more accustomed to two pedals and automatic transmissions can enjoy the unbelievable performance and handling of the Exige S without compromise.” [source: Lotus]
