One of the world's best sports cars meets one of its most challenging road courses.
The Lotus Exige has been around in its current form since 2012. It’s the British marque's most hardcore car (not counting the roof-less 3-Eleven track special), designed for people who want both lightweight and a big dollop of power to play with. Sadly, this latest generation isn't available in the United States, depriving Americans of one of the purest driving experiences out there—a mid-engine, stick-shift sports car with no stereo and a power-to-weight ratio on par with a Porsche 911 GT3.
The Lotus Exige 360 Cup has been engineered using cutting-edge racing design. Enjoy near perfect weight distribution and suspension handling characteristics that reward fast driving. The Lotus lives for the race track! The Lotus Exige has been around in its current form since 2012. It’s the British marque's most hardcore car (not counting the roof-less 3-Eleven track special), designed for people who want both.
Depending on spec (from 345 hp to 430), the Exige is either 'quite angry' or 'incredibly miffed', with various wing and spring configurations to suit pretty much any driver from the road-going enthusiasts to the track types. There’s a sweet spot in the range, though: the 410 Sport. Producing 410 hp (thank you for making a numeric name matter, Lotus) from its mid-mounted, supercharged 3.5-liter V6, it’ll crack a 0-60 mph run in 3.3 seconds if you’re quick enough with its six-speed stick on its way to 174 mph.
At our workshops we can carry out the installation and setup of upgrades to all aspects of the engine, suspension, braking system and transmission. With numerous options for normally aspirated and forced induction setups we have a wealth of knowledge and experience with the Rover K-Series and Toyota engines (2ZZ, 1ZZ, 1ZR, 2GR) that have featured in the various models of Elise, Exige, and Evora over the years.
Our main aim when performance tuning your Lotus is to deliver a tuned car that delivers both the benefits of more power and agility while maintaining the great balance and character that all go towards enhancing the overall driving experience.
“Dynamics” is a word you will often find us using when we discuss your upgrade requirements. Here, our approach is to refine and enhance the performance of the car using carefully selected components and implementing them correctly.
That’s a lot of power for any car, but in a modified Lotus Exige that weighs only 743kg (1,638lb), it’s utter madness. How Craig manages to harness the power boggles the mind, but BC Racing coilovers and a full AP Racing brake setup on the front end, coupled with upgraded rotors and pads at the rear, provide some extra reassurance.
