“We have taken the Exige Cup 430, the ultimate track-centric Exige, and developed it into the perfect road orientated sports car…”Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus
“With every new Lotus we look to move the bar higher and apply technology and development ideas drawn from top-of-the-range models,” said Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus. “Our agility as a company means that the lessons learnt today can quickly be incorporated into the cars of tomorrow and the Exige Sport 410 is a perfect example of this. We have taken the Exige Cup 430, the ultimate track-centric Exige, and developed it into the perfect road orientated sports car, ensuring that we stay ahead of rivals when it comes to cars that deliver a truly engaging analogue driving experience.
The front splitter helps separate and speed airflow under the car, and the inclusion of air curtain elements into the front clam panel efficiently moves air through to the front wheel cavities to help reduce turbulence and drag created by the front wheels. In addition, the enlarged front clam panel openings, with wider radiator apertures, aid cooling. At the rear, the extended Aluminium diffuser, combined with the new high-mounted wing all contribute to the Exige Sport 410’s enhanced downforce.
The Exige Sport 410 uses Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with 285/30 ZR18 in the rear and 215/45 ZR17 up front. Braking is provided by AP Racing, with forged, four-piston calipers and performance two-piece J-hook brake discs.
MSRP in the UK for the Exige Sport 410 is £85,600 including 20% value added tax.
