Price will be the interesting part of this, it could be fantastic value or another huge Lotus price.

Car looks like a 430 Cup with less power and a smaller wing.

I'd like to know a real, wet weight figure, as dry weights are pretty irrelevant in reality.

How long until a special edition version of it? 🤣

Is that official no more 380 Sport?

I'm still at the point of deciding on a 350 Sport with lots of extras or standard 380 Sport... If the 380 is no more and the 410 starts at £85k!!! Guess it's going to be the 350 with options for all of us buyers at the £60k-£70k price point 🙄

Starting with the revised Exige Sport 350, the comprehensive Exige range now includes the new Exige Sport 410 and culminates with the extreme Exige Cup 430: each at a distinct price point, performance level and degree of motorsport focus.

Wonder if the £57,200 Exige 350 Sport starting price is about to take a rise to sit where the 380 used to as well then?!

Same deal with the GT430 > GT410 Sport. Almost looks like some kind of strategy now!

A chargecooled 410 is definitely worth a premium over the Sport 380. £15k though? Possibly not depending on the intended use.

2kg lighter (dry) than the Cup 430, that's the rear wing I guess? Can't be much else.

Aside from the usual complaints should be a mega car.

Will it ultimately boost 430 Cup sales or rob them?

Makes the 430 Cup look bloody expensive!

It does but not by that much. Especially since a lot of the options are non-standard on the 410.

Like the titanium exhaust (£5.5 right there), barge boards (seems they made a return on 410), carbon sills etc

So if you are planning on putting a lot of options, the 430 doesn't sound too crazy if you are willing to spend that much.

I wish the 430 had the barge boards, I wonder how much they are from lotus.

 Well it appears my Fire Red 380 (that I’ve yet to pick up) is becoming rarer by the day🤔

Not keen on the new front end of the Exige anyway......thankfully!🙄

Barge boards are a lot. But they are carbon fibre, I don't think plastic ones are even an option.

I dont know if this is a good or bad thing for 380 owners - i guess time will tell but jeez they have been through the mill. 

Makes sense to mirror the line up and selfishly this will help 350 residuals so i am happy. 

I put £10 into the sweepstake that the cup version is announced within 2 months. :sofa:

 

What is revised on the 350? New front clam to update like the 410/430?

Expect a special "Second Tuesday of the month" special Edition in a few weeks  🙂

I really quite like that, prefer the double lights of the 350 at the rear. Starting to feel a bit priced out of the new car market.
