Lotus Exige Cup 380 Announced

Lotus Exige Cup 380 Is A Track Machine You Can Drive Home

The Cup 380 tips the scales at a mere 2,330 pounds (1,057 kg), versus 2,447 pounds (1,110 kg) for the Sport 380 and 2,200 pounds (998 kg) for the Race 380.

Based on the already remarkable Exige Sport 380, the Exige Cup 380 has been thoroughly modified to produce a harder, more focused vehicle. It certainly looks the part of a race vehicle - I guess I take back my earlier comment about the Sport 380 being the most garish Exige ever.

You can find out more details about the new Lotus Exige Cup 380 over at Lotus at the link below, each one will cost £83,000. That results in maximum downforce of about 441 pounds at the Cup 380's top speed of 175 miles per hour. Lotus has pegged the auto as road and track-friendly, although the considerable downforce boost, due to a new front splitter, access panel, bargeboards and rear wing, means the vehicle is far more track-honed than the standard Exige and the Sport 380. Optional carbon fibre components include one-piece inner door panels, HVAC console and face-level vent surrounds, which together offer an additional 1 kg reduction over the standard vehicle. Even the windshield wiper rests in a vertical position to aid aerodynamics.

More basic weight-saving measures such as doing away with the boot carpet and gas tailgate struts, as well as replacing standard interior trim pieces with lighter items, further help to reduce the car's mass.

Poland hoping for 'development of relations' between EU, Turkey after referendum
Turkey's main opposition party has filed a formal request seeking the referendum to be annulled because of voting irregularities. Turkey's society is badly divided, with at least half the population opposed to the slide into authoritarianism under Erdogan.

That weight reduction, including the diet above, also helps the vehicle corner faster and get up to speed quicker.

The supercharged Toyota-sourced 3.5-litre V6 continues to make 375hp at 6,700rpm and 410Nm (302lb-ft) of torque at 5,000rpm and is mated to a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox with a lovely open-gate design.

There's also a variable traction control function that lets drivers dial in how much wheel slip they want in a turn. The Cup 380 also has two-way adjustable shocks and adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars. Stopping power is provided by AP Racing forged, four-piston brake calipers and grooved performance two-piece brake discs.

The optional full exhaust system in titanium removes 10 kg from beyond the rear axle, and buyers can specify a number of additions and deletions, including FIA compliant roll cage, full race harness, electrical cut-off and fire extinguisher controls as well as airbag deletion and a non-airbag steering wheel. The Exige Cup 380's instrument panels have also been optimized with new graphics that make the information displayed easier to read at race pace. In the United Kingdom, buyers will spend £83,000 in the United Kingdom and €109,900 in Europe.
