Remember that bizarre 2012 Lotus Exige S teaser from before the Frankfurt Motor Show? Lotus has now released the full version and it's still as baffling as ever.

Although beautifully shot, the promo titled "Duel" continues the bout between a menacing looking boxer, perhaps symbolic of the Porsche Boxster, versus the heavily facelifted 2012 Lotus Exige. Unsurpringly, the Exige quite literally ends up running circles around the boxer.

To refresh your memory, the facelifted Lotus Exige S was revealed almost two weeks ago at the Frankfurt motor show powered by a 3.5 liter supercharged V6 from the Evora S producing 350 PS (257 kW / 345 hp) within a 1080 kg (2376 lbs) chassis.

For the actual facelift styling a one piece bumper/bonnet clip along with new headlamps shapes the front end while the rear is also revamped with a new rear body with built in lid spoiler, large bolt-on wing and lower diffuser.
