Exige S Coupe

Exige S Coupe

Overview

Weight
From nose to tail, the powerful stance of Exige S highlights a peerless lightweight performance pedigree. Powered by a 345bhp (350PS) supercharged V6 engine, it flies like the wind. Track-inspired details, such as its focused aerodynamics and hip-hugging cabin, amplify its competence. The purity of its driving thrills are a Lotus remit that promotes the sensation of intimacy with the car. The Exige S a performance car developed for drivers by equally passionate drivers. Developed expertly by the renowned Lotus ride and handling team, at the Hethel test track, its dynamic capabilities are inspirational, in the way that only a Lotus can be.
Performance
Not for the feint of heart, the Exige S applies its supercharged power unit to great effect. Its throttle response is immediate. Its weight distribution encourages a thrilling handling envelope. Its inherent mechanical grip is inspiring. It is accompanied by an exhaust tone that signifies a pinnacle sportscar.
Torsion
Underpinning every Exige S is the most efficient, strongest and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of racing car developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. It allows the suspension to work most effectively, to provide unparalleled grip, a comfortable ride and a dynamic balance that is exceptional.
Safety
However inelegant some safety features can be, Lotus incorporates them within its cars as elements of the design package. The Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) ensures that the driver can harness the high potential of the engine and its chassis through three programmed settings (four, if you opt for the Pace Pack) and antilock brakes help to avoid hazards.
