Lotus have launched a “race only” version of the Exige Sport 380.
Owners of the competition car will have to wait until May 2017 to drive it on the race track.
It posted a lap time around the Hethel track of 1 minute 23.5 seconds. This makes it the fastest ever Exige around the track.

“The Lotus Exige Sport 380 is a real giant slayer on the road, and one of the quickest A to B supercars around. It gave us the ideal platform from which to develop the new Exige Race 380 – a peerless competition car designed to beat the best. By setting its weight below 1000kg, its power to weight is unsurpassed in its class. When lapping Hethel, it’s a phenomenal 1.5 seconds faster than the previous Exige Cup R – a massive performance gain. It’s an unparalleled race car that follows the philosophy of Colin Chapman and we can’t wait for customers to experience its capabilities.”
Said Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc.
