Lotus has announced a new special edition Exige, the Lotus Exige 350 Special Edition which is based on the Exige Sport 350.
The Lotus Exige 350 Special Edition has gone on a diet and is now 26kg lighter than the prvious model at 1,099 kg.
Weighing just 1099 kg, the Lotus Exige 350 Special Edition has shed an impressive 77 kg, when compared to the previous generation Exige S. The result of a thorough re-evaluation, every component has been scrutinised in order for the car to possess the purity of drive and benchmark handling which all Lotus cars are renowned for.
Amongst the many enhancements, the use of a louvered tailgate panel, a lighter battery, lightweight engine mounts, a lightweight centre console featuring an exposed gearshift mechanism, lighter HVAC pipework and the optimised use of sound insulation have all contributed to the extreme Exige’s focused drive. A total of 26 kg has been excluded from the car through the careful application of performance components: a 5 kg saving from the use of forged wheels, 10 kg from the Li-Ion battery, 6 kg from the carbon seats and 5kg from the vented, two-piece brake discs.
