Jay Leno Presents the Ronin RS 211: An Automotive Hodgepodge Built on a Lotus Exige

Celebrity

It started out as a Lotus, it’s something else now.

When Frank Profera was rear-ended by a Porsche while out driving his Lotus Exige, he saw it as an opportunity to create something unique. So with help from a few friends he set about transforming what was left of the car into a combined homage to both the Lotus 211 and some of those fantastic old Can Am cars. The car was also made a lot more powerful, which presented no small number of new challenges.

The car is terrific in its new form, and both looks and sounds great.
