The exceptional Lotus Exige models strike a delicate balance between the agility of a race car and the manners of a road vehicle. While the Cup 430 is primarily designed for the circuit, the Sport variants are tuned for the road and expertly deliver the power, response and refinement suited to more everyday driving. A leader in lightweight construction, Lotus has justified every gram, ensuring maximum high-speed stability and superb handling at every turn.
The Exige Sport 350 and Exige Sport 410 have a fuel-injected, supercharged 3.5-litre V6 engine at their heart. Developing 345hp and 410hp respectively, they will power you from 0-60mph in under four seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 170mph. This muscle is tempered by high-performance brakes with AP Racing four-piston calipers, as well as driver-selectable ESP modes that enable you to modify your drive to your preferences.
The Lotus Exige Cup 430 takes this spirit to a new level, sprinting from 0-60mph is just 3.2 seconds and delivering an exhilarating drive that’s tailored for the race track. Lightweight elements and optimised downforce harness the power, ensuring razor-sharp handling and maximum stability.
Choosing a Lotus means you’re not afraid to put performance before everything else. As such, the Exige range has a cabin built for practicality and comfort rather than opulent luxury.
Carbon fibre sports seats and black Alcantara® trim ensure you feel comfortable and supported, while driver and passenger airbags offer passive protection.
If you want to enhance your drive, air conditioning and cruise control are options on every variant and a stereo can be specified on the Exige Sport 410 and Exige Cup 430 models.
The Exige lineup takes the latest in aerodynamic design to optimise performance and downforce through every mile. The front splitter separates and speeds airflow beneath the vehicle, while front-wheel drag is reduced by the front clam panel. At the rear, there’s an aluminium diffuser to further improve downforce. In addition, the sculpted body encourages airflow with carbon composite panels, ensuring every line and curve pursues aerodynamic excellence.
