Lotus has released the extreme 430-horsepower coupe Exige Cup 430

Share

Lotus continues to roll out the special editions.

As the "Cup" name implies, this Exige is a proper track auto. And we believe it. That number represents a 55 hp (41-kW) increase over the standard Exige. You've probably figured out by now what the 430 stands for, but you should also know it reaches its peak power at a juicy 7,000 rpm and also develops 325 lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque from 4,000 rpm. It all comes paired to a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox, naturally.

The Lotus Exige Cup 430 is a very good example of what that might be.

Headlining features include an array of carbon-fibre components - the front splitter, "front access panel", side air intakes, tailgate and "race-derived" fixed rear wing.

Developing 430 horsepower, the vehicle has a top speed of 180mph and has lapped the company's test track at Hethel in Norfolk in 1:24.8 seconds - the fastest lap time set by any of its production cars and 1.3 seconds quicker than the Lotus 3-Eleven. For optimum handling, the auto also comes with standard front and rear anti-roll bars, three-way adjustable dampers, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and the largest brakes ever fitted to a Lotus production vehicle.

Compared to the previous Exige Cup 380 - which was a limited-run version - the Cup 430 has 15 per cent more power, 9 per cent more downforce allocated to the front, while the interior shaves some 2.5 kilograms.
