Superlative Model - The Lotus Exige Cup 430
|   Thursday, December 21, 2017
Lotus engineers continue to launch special editions on the market. After the Elise Cup 260, the Evora GT430 and some other very fast and quite different models unveiled in recent months, it looks like the new Exige Cup 430 promises to be “the most extreme Exige model ever built”.

The power is provided by the same engine, the supercharged Toyota V6 with a 3.5 liter displacement, which we also see on the Exige 380, but, as the model name suggests, it has been modified to pull out 430 horsepower, 55 more than the standard version.


This extra power allows the new Exige 430 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 km/h, surpassing the Exige 380 by nearly 16 km/h.

Moreover, due to the dramatic changes to the bodywork, including a new front splitter, new air slots on the same side, but also a massive dorsal wing, the new Exige 430 can reach at high speed a downforce of 220 kilograms.

The bodywork is mostly made of super lightweight carbon fiber, so the car does not exceed 1,056 kilos in the simplest configuration.

It seems that the Lotus Exige Cup 430 will not be released in an edition as limited as the previous special versions and may already be ordered at a price of 99,800 pounds in the UK, 127,500 euro in Germany or 128,600 in France. Unfortunately, this new Exige will not be available on the American market as well.
