Lotus has further slimmed down the sports version of the Exige. Compared to the production model, the Exige S Club Racer is 15 kilograms lighter. The weight loss was achieved, among other things, by a new rear wing, the optimized underbody, a lighter console in the interior as well as lighter doors and sports seats. The 3,5-liter six-cylinder with 257 kW / 350 hp, with which the Club Racer runs to 100 km / h in four seconds, remains untouched. The top speed is only reached at 274 km / h.
The athlete is available in white, orange and yellow. It is also available in matt black for 2.500 euros. Parts of the front, rear wing and the mirrors and rear spoiler are painted matt black as standard.
The 74.000 Euro Lotus Exige S Club Racer has little on board from the factory. If you want some comfort, you can also order air conditioning (2.100 euros) or a radio with a USB port (1.425 euros).
