Applying the Lotus refined Club Racer principles to the already stunning Exige S results in the most inspiring version of an already class-leading sports car. With a reputation of outshining many cars in its class, the 345 bhp supercharged power, coupled with precise handling, provides outstanding performance that’s absolutely guaranteed to thrill with total confidence.
The Exige S is a model that already excels, thanks to its lightweight aluminium chassis-tub and aerodynamically enhanced composite bodywork. Its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine delivers exciting performance, benchmark handling and a pure driving experience combined with a 4.0 seconds 0-62mph (0-100km/h) acceleration time and a top speed of 274 km/h (170 mph). Factoring the Club Racer ethos into the Exige enhances the track-focussed potential of this important model. It encompasses our legendary benchmark in handling, with lightweight and efficient construction and that we will always put a peerless and pure driving experience first.
At 1161 kg, it is lighter by 15 kg compared to the Exige S, because of its new lightweight battery, lightweight centre console in body colour, lighter doors and lightweight sports seats in leather or Alcantara with colour coded stitching. Traction slip thresholds (‘Drive‘, ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings) allowing the driver enhanced vehicle control before intervention is required can be altered via a driver-selectable switch which is now fitted as standard. Both ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings increase throttle responsiveness.
The Exige S Club Racer is available in Metallic White, Exige Orange, Metallic Yellow and Matt Black (option). The front splitter, rear wing, front access panel, roof panel, wing mirrors and rear transom are in matt black. Club Racer decals inside on the dashboard and seats and outside above the side indicator identify this latest special addition to the Exige range.
To create desirable, wind-in-the-hair excitement, the Exige S Roadster maintains its peerless lightweight performance pedigree with its top removed. Better to hear the 345bhp (350PS) supercharged V6 engine, the aural effect is of a classic convertible. Yet, there is no loss of its track-inspired details and its focused aerodynamics and hip-hugging cabin, underline its purpose. The purity of its driving thrills are a Lotus remit that promotes the sensation of driver intimacy with the car, enhanced, when the weather permits, by greater intimacy with the environment. The Exige S Roadster is a performance car developed for drivers by equally passionate drivers. Developed expertly by the renowned Lotus ride and handling team, at the Hethel test track, its dynamic capabilities are inspirational, in the way that only a Lotus can be.
With its racy V6 engine, the Exige S Roadster applies its supercharged immediacy to great effect. Its throttle response is instantaneous. Its weight distribution encourages a thrilling handling envelope. Its inherent mechanical grip is the stuff of legends. It is accompanied by an exhaust tone that highlights a pinnacle, open-topped sportscar.
Underpinning every Exige S Roadster is the most efficient, strongest and low weight, extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of racing car developments, its torsional rigidity is uncompromised, even with the top removed. It allows the suspension to work most effectively, to provide unparalleled grip, a comfortable ride and a dynamic balance that is exceptional.
However inelegant some safety features can be, Lotus incorporates them within its Exige S Roadster as elements of the design package. An in-built roll structure keeps occupants safe, while an electronic speed limiter maintains comfort levels. The Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) ensures that the driver can harness the high potential of the engine and its chassis through three programmed settings (four, if you opt for the Pace Pack) and antilock brakes help to avoid hazards.
Raw performance, agility, unparalleled ride and handling. These are attributes that people have come to expect from Lotus - and the Lotus Exige Sport 350 is no exception.
Lighter and faster than before - now with revised bodywork, 51 kilograms lighter construction, revised suspension and increased levels of grip this Exige Sport 350 is 2.5 seconds faster than the Exige S around our famous Hethel circuit.
The improved styling package includes our new optional Heritage Tartan interior, and new gearshift mechanism with exposed design, which combine to deliver a purer sportscar driving experience. The lightweight louvered tailgate complete the dynamic sport styling.
The Lotus Exige Sport 350 is the pinnacle of Exige driving for motoring aficionados looking for high performance, agility, dynamic handling and an exhilarating driving experience.
Lotus Motorsport redefines the Exige V6 Cup with the introduction of the Exige 360 Cup. New lightweight panels and an increase in power mean the Lotus Motorsport Cup model continues to provide a benchmark in handling and performance. This new model boasts an increase in power of 10 PS with freer flowing induction and a sports exhaust system, which combined with a low vehicle weight of 1130 kg gives an incredibly pure driving experience on road and track.
The new Exige 360 Cup moves the game forward with striking new design features and performance upgrades that offer phenomenal ability on road and track. The 10 PS powertrain updates of the freer flowing induction and a sports exhaust system also give the Exige 360 Cup a sportier soundtrack to enhance the driving experience.
The chassis on the Exige 360 Cup is a Lotus designed stiff and lightweight bonded aluminium chassis with double wishbone suspension all round. The Exige 360 Cup uses the track proven aero package from the Exige V6 Cup with an aerodynamically optimised front splitter, rear diffuser and wing. Together with the flat underside these aerodynamic aids offer 42 kg of downforce at 100 mph (160 km/h).
The car is fitted with track focused 2-way adjustable suspension and a 4-dynamic mode (drive, sport, race and off) system, including launch control. The stability system and antilock brakes ensure that the driver can harness the high potential of the engine and its chassis through its programmed settings.
Consider that the Exige V6 Cup is already an optimised lightweight sportscar, adding the R suffix takes the V6 Cup R to authentic competition standard. While lightness remains a perpetual Lotus pillar, the Cup R variant is another 60kgs lighter. Removing the passenger seat and much of the road trim makes it even more track-focused, while its aerodynamics package and driver‘s race seat underline its real purpose. The purity of its driving dynamics promotes the race driver intimacy with the car. The Exige V6 Cup R is a performance-enhanced sportscar developed for racing drivers by equally passionate racers. The renowned Lotus ride and handling team, at the Hethel test track, created capabilities that are jaw-dropping, in the way that only a truly-focused Lotus can be.
Its punchy, supercharged, 3.5-litre V6 engine, has been increased in power to 363bhp (366PS). Its throttle response is immediate. Its handling envelope is thrilling and totally engaging. Mechanical grip is ideal for the racetracks of the world, while an optional six-speed sequential gearbox, featuring dog clutches for ratio engagement, ensure consistently fast progress. Optional paddle shift is available.
Underpinning the purpose-built Exige V6 Cup R is the most efficient, strongest and low weight, extruded and bonded aluminium alloy chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of racing car developments, its torsional rigidity is phenomenal. It allows the two-way adjustable suspension to work most productively, to provide unparalleled track grip, especially on tight hairpins and in the heat of competition.
Lotus incorporates all FIA-approved safety equipment within its Exige V6 Cup R as elements of the overall design intentions, including fire extinguisher, race seat and runners. A full roll cage keeps the competitor safe. The Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) ensures that the driver can harness the high potential of the engine and its chassis through four programmed settings, with antilock four-pot brake callipers front and rear to aid braking performance.
