Lotus Exige Sport 380


Recommended Posts

One more (irritating thing) is that when pulling off slowly from rest, the first bit of throttle pedal movement does not appear to do anything. Push the pedal further and all is fine. My V6 wasn,t like this. However, when just parked up and the throttle blipped I get an instant response. Wonder if its me and the V6S/380 differences?

 

Anyone had this...

cheers

He's put some mileage on his car in a short time, if he gets close to his asking price he will have done well I think.  I still like the colour choice, nice Exige that.  

A GT430 would probably work well for him but I guess it will be a 380 Cup.

Not convinced it's his ad - doesn't read like he wote it and why would he post in Germany?

A Swedish magazine just tested the 380. 

0-100 km/h 4,4 s

0-200 km/h 15,8 s

German Sport Auto got 14,4 s from the V6

Another info that is in line with my feeling......all this extra model are following each other at such speed that it seems (imo) impossible to deeply test. Are al thes extra "series of a model" just a money making marketing machine?

It could be, no?

4,4s 0-100km/h not really surprising :)

Pretty disappointing TBTH 0.7sec slower than the official time

I'm not sure it's known by many of us, but a lot of infos are recorded by the ECU, and can be obtained with the Lotus tool... including the best O-100 kph :P ! Mine is 4,1s ... a lot of useful infos are available, regarding highest temps, highest speeds, highest rpm when cold, etc...

I was able to check this way that my (auto) gearbox temperature never exceeded 100°c, even with one trackday. I asked for an oil change anyway, as I do think it is the key to preserve gearboxes on a long term ...

Yes we get the print out at each service, however you still expect a journalist to at least be trying and pushing the car to its limits. However this certainly doesn't look the case in Sweden!

I always get a print out of all history of revs and speed

I dont care about 0-100 km/h but more important is 0-200. And 15,8 is actually slow, but it is faster than german Sport Auto....

My old M3 CSL did 0-200 in 16s. And that is 360 bhp and a lot kilos

Very scientific conclusion that!  Funny I went out in my Evora NA the other day and it felt like it had 380bhp!  Very exciting. :devil:

 

If you don't have proof, I mean real proof, then let's stop the bullshit posting. The internet has enough fake news for all of us.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I have track data, it is pretty clear.

Of a 311? Fair enough. Track data logged is pretty conclusive over basing it on "feel" which is not.
