Lotus Exige Cup 430

The new, high-performance version of the sports auto has seen some major revisions - the main feature being the engine from the bigger Evora GT430.

Compared to the previous "bestest" Exige - the Cup 380 - the new model makes 15%, or 55 hp and 30 Nm, more power.

The latest fire-breathing road-legal racing auto to roll out of Lotus's tiny production facility, the Exige Cup 430: Unlimited Edition, offers extreme levels of acceleration, grip and handling, but best of all, it's set to be a standard, full-production model rather than a limited-run special edition.

The unit is linked as standard to a close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission with the famous open-gate design. Now with a redline of 7,000rpm, the Exige's 430hp and 325lb ft are sufficient for a 3.3-second sprint to 62mph and a 180mph top speed.

The company Lotus introduced the Exige extreme vehicle in the history of the model.
