2018 LOTUS EXIGE SPORT 380 – Amazing Bespoke Spec

Recommended Posts

Launched back in 2000, on the eve of the inaugural round of the Autobytel Lotus Championship race, the Exige was a true ‘race car’ for the road. Fantastic power to weight ratio and a chassis that was designed to produce one thing, grip! In 2012 the model went through a big change with new power units and a longer and wider body. The new V6 gave the Exige S more torque and moved the range up in performance, winning Evo magazines ‘Car of the Year’. In 2016 Lotus launched the Exige Sport 380. With power pushed up to 375hp, weight cut down by 25kgs and an aero package that creates up to 60% more downforce, the Sport 380 put the Exige range into a class of its own. 0 to 60 is done with in 3.5sec, and around Lotus’s Hethel test circuit, chassis engineer and racing driver Gavan Kershaw can get the 380 around a lap a full 2.5sec faster than the Exige Sport 350.

That’s thanks in part to uprated brakes, grooved AP Racing discs borrowed from the 3-Eleven track car (they’re ‘expensive but efficient’, says Lotus), 140kg of downforce at top speed, and a switch to Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.

‘On a track [we believe] it can leave behind almost anything below £1m,’ says Lotus. You might find a car that is faster on the autobahn, but on a real road, you’d be hard pushed to find anything that can beat it. This bespoke example is in perfect condition, having been looked after very well by its 1 and only owner. With nearly every option selected, including the full Carbon Package this Sport 380 is finished in stunning Motorsport Black which has a Gold Fleck. The Gold theme is continued with Gold rear wing uprights, Gold Accent Decals and Gold Interior Pack. This Exige is a true 1 of a kind and is a ‘must see’ in the flesh!
