This is Lotus’ most exciting new model. High powered, highly evolved, and ferociously fast, the Lotus Exige Sport 380 is the most aggressive iteration yet for the Exige model line-up.
Taking the fight straight to six-figure supercars, this new, top-of-the-range model carries over the lessons learnt in the development of the acclaimed Exige Sport 350, launched last year, but with significant revisions lowering weight, boosting power and enhancing aerodynamics. Rather than relying excessively on electronics, or allow sterile interfaces to dull the experience, the extreme Exige Sport 380 offers a pure, undiluted drive that must be experienced to be fully appreciated.
The fastest Exige ever: 0-60 mph in 3.5 secs, 375 HP and 352 HP per/tonne, it weighs from 1,066 kg dry and 1,100 kg kerb weight, and nose-to-tail carbon components as standard. Unrivalled in its class: faster, sharper, and more direct, the Exige Sport 380 is not for the timid. This new, pure-bred Lotus has been conceived to outperform and out manoeuvre so-called supercars. The new Exige is blisteringly fast off the line, dispatching 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 178 mph.
From the intricately engineered exposed-gear-change linkage, to the swathes of carbon-fibre components and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as standard, every inch of the Exige has been carefully cultivated. Firmly defined as a Lotus for the enthusiast, the car is an expression of intense engineering – challenging accomplished drivers to extract the car’s true potential.
The company’s powertrain division has left its mark on the car, with the uprated 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine generating 375 HP at 6,700 rpm and 410 Nm (302 lb/ft.) of torque at 5,000 rpm.
