This ( for me ) is a perfect summation of how all the S3 Exige threads pan out in relation to design faults or new model version's. Lotus constantly muddy the waters ( depth too shallow )and The Pit's

To put that into words that the playground will understand: "Ner dee ner dee ner ner. You lot know nothing."

Do Lotus say if the development car in  @RESTELL's 2015 photo was charge cooled or not?

Thanks Bibs for the note from lotus.

I’m now very confused... and please please let’s not start any more argument but the original post did clearly state this was a 430 mule. The test driver must have been mistaken then?

Probably was a 430, just different than the 430 we have today. They probably even have a 500 mule, I'd imagine they're constantly testing and experimenting...

Lol at this thread and some of the comments on it. Unless they're releasing an entirely new model this year (or next), then there is still more to come from it, we'll see a 450/460 model yet..- know for a fact they can wind it up over 500 hp, how long it will last is another mater but this is why they test things out. I have no doubt the engine config in the back of thatmule was the 430, but that's all it is, the engine config.

430 as in output as supposed to a specific vehicle surely.

The car pictured was not chargecooled, my post above from Lotus was factually correct and the Cup 430 wasn't conceived as a project until 2017 as stated. 

You could consider that any Exige mule is a mule towards future development and upgrades, so could even say that the first V6 Exige was a development car towards the latest Exige, it all heads in the same direction ultimately.

However I think we’re all old and wise enough to not believe everything on the internet even if people claim to have heard it direct from the manufacturer.

and that pretty much sums up this thread.
