A Celebrity of Epic Proportions; The Small but Mighty Exige S Holds Its Own on the Big Screen.

Tipped at this summer’s smash-hit movie release ‘RED 2’, the sequel to ‘RED’ (Retired Extremely Dangerous), stars a host of brilliant performers; Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sir Anthony Hopkins and the Lotus Exige S. The action follows retired secret agents who reunite to expose an intriguing and deadly conspiracy from their past; avoiding double agents and assassins along the way! The hotly anticipated sequel features a massive A-List cast, stunning locations and a Laser Blue Exige S which undertakes high speed chases, dodges bullet storms and slides its way through London’s streets, markets and motorways.

As a special exhibit for the 2013 Goodwood FoS, one of three cars used for the movie will be on display on the Lotus stand dressed in its original stunt ‘costume’. Yes, the Exige S will don its special effect bullet holes and war-wounded body panels once again exclusively for the Goodwood audience.

The Exige S can be seen in ‘RED 2’ in cinemas internationally from 18th July (UK release 2nd August), but if you simply can’t wait to see Lotus Chief Engineer of Test and Development, Matthew Becker drive the Exige S in complex stunt sequences performing handbrake turns, high speed chases and some pretty full on braking then check out the trailer online: The scenes are high octane with a truly British feel, which echo the Lotus spirit and sit well remarkably well with the FoS philosophy too!
