More news on the Lotus front – looks like the Exos Experience is getting underway. The Type 125 F1-inspired track-only car revealed last August was on display at the Autosport International show, and news is that it will be making its track debut this week with a test at the Autodromo Vallelunga Piero Taruffi in Italy.

Following this, the car – which is powered by a 650 hp 3.5 litre Cosworth GP V8 engine mated to a six-speed semi automatic gearbox with paddle shift – will head over to Abu Dhabi next week, where the first lucky customers will get the chance to put the car through its paces on the F1 track at Yas Marina Circuit.

The holistic Exos Experience should see the limited number of Lotus 125 owner drivers getting a whole lot for what they pay for, among this plenty of track time on various circuits such as Paul Ricard in the south of France as well as the Autódromo do Algarve, Portimao in Portugal. As they rightly should.
