Lotus has a brand new track-focused model, and it’s called the Lotus Exige V6 Cup, aimed at new and current Lotus Cup series racing, including Lotus Cup UK, Lotus Cup Europe, Lotus Cup Eastern Europe, Lotus Cup Italy, Lotus Cup Japan, and the Lotus Ladies Cup (Hungary).
Two models are available – the Track Day version goes for £62,995 and a full-on Competition-spec car starts from £74,995. The Exige V6 Cup’s supercharged 3.5 litre Toyota V6 makes 346 hp, taking the 1,080 kg V6 Cup up to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
The car comes equipped with Lotus Dynamic Performance Management, so you can switch the engine and traction settings between Touring, Sport and Race. Other specs include Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo tyres, an aerodynamically optimised front splitter, rear diffuser and wing, multi-adjustable suspension as well as race-ready kit such as a heavy-duty roll cage, four or six-point harnesses, isolator switches, FIA-approved fire extinguisher, tow eyes, removable steering wheel and HANS-compliant race seats.
