Lotus has unveiled a new version of the Exige Cup 430 dubbed the Type 25. The car is hailed as the “most accomplished Exige” and only 25 examples will be hand built at Norfolk. Each example will come with unique heritage documents and bespoke interior and exterior.
The cars are made up in two color schemes with green and white as the main colors meant to celebrate the Lotus racing car that dominated the 1963 racing season. Power for the Type 25 is from a 3.5L V6 with 430hp and 440Nm of torque. It can reach 60-mph in 3.2 seconds and had aero to generate up to 220kg of downforce.
Each of the 25 versions will have a numbered certificate of authenticity and a plaque showing its number in the run. The cars come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and defeatable traction control systems. Eibach adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars are standard along with Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
