The Lotus Exige S Roadster is one sexy sports car and brilliant fun to drive. But getting in and out? Virtually impossible unless you’re a fully lubed up Russian gymnast. With that in mind we thought we’d set the public a challenge: get in and out as gracefully as possible without breaking themselves or the car.
The Lotus Exige S Roadster is quite the pulling machine, so needless to say we weren’t short on participants eager to plant their bums on its hand-stitched leather seats. That, however, was easier said than done.
Hilarity ensued and, because we know you love a good chuckle, we made sure we filmed it all for posterity. Some participants were surprisingly adept at negotiating the Lotus’ poor excuse for a driver-side door.
Predictably, short people fared well, as did those that had youth on their side. Others, like 67-year-old Kostas, found it a little more difficult. At one point the poor chap had us wondering whether we’d taken this challenge one step too far.
Thankfully no humans were injured in the making of this video.
