V6 width

Recommended Posts

Does any happen to know (or could measure for me) the actual width of a V6 Exige across the rear wheels?

ie: tyre face to tyre face, not the “track” measurement.

I’ll be taking the Evora on the Eurotunnel soon and have read it recommended to use the wider “high vehicle” carriages.

Never had any problems with my Exige in the ordinary carriages. Maybe it was my superior driving technique! 😁

Thanks @mik

I had seen that but didn’t trust it as it has the length wrong! 

Official Lotus handbook length is 4084 coupe/4067 roadster.  3797 is way off!

Anybody got a tape measure handy?

I’ll do it myself next time I’m passing the dealer but can anyone save me the trip?

Cheers.

As per your experience,  I always take mine on the standard carriage and there's enough room either side of the rears. Nothing a competant driver can't manage.

No issue on the Euro tunnel, go with the vans...

As wide as a 430 cup will be, it is still narrwoer than a normal german SUV I believe ... anyway, just keep an eye on the kerb, as rear is wider than the front ;)

I've got this, thanks.

I just didn't know if "B" was bodywork width or wheel width. Wheels should be slightly narrower.

Thanks for all the Exige pics, but I knew it fitted no probs. It's just I've got an Evora now and all the guys on the Evora section warn about the width in the standard carriages.

I know I can just go in with the SUVs/People carriers/coaches, etc., so that's what I'll do.

Just wondering if it was really necessary, or just soft Evora owners being scared! 😁

I think it is just down to the driving skills (as per @Arun_D's comment above)... :zorro:
