Lotus Exige V6 Cup breaks cover

Article by Christian A., on August 20, 2012

Lotus Exige V6 Cup made its debut at the Lotus Festival at Brands Hatch this past weekend. Lotus will offer two versions of the V6 Cup -- a Track Day version 9 (priced at £62,995) and what is referred to as a “full-on Competition-spec” car with a price tag that says £74,995. It is powered by a 346bhp 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine, which powers the Lotus Exige S.

Lotus said that the Exige V6 Cup could accelerate to 62mph in 3.5sec and could get to a top speed of 170mph. This car’s weight is at 1080kg. It is equipped with Lotus Dynamic Performance Management, enabling the driver to make the shift between Touring, Sport and Race modes. It features Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo tyres, an aero-optimised front splitter, rear diffuser and wing, to go along with multi-adjustable suspension.

It also offers a roll cage, FIA-approved fire extinguisher, HANS-compliant race seats and a removable steering wheel. Consumers can make the choice between four- or six-point race harnesses. The Lotus Exige V6 Cup will start production this December, with an initial run of 20 cars intended for production through to March 2013. Competition models are built to participate in new and current Lotus Cup championships throughout Europe, Japan and America.
