This Exige maintains its supercharged 3.5-liter V6, which is good for producing 410 BHP and 310 lb-ft. of torque, propelling the car from 0-60 MPH in just 3.3 seconds. Although it doesn’t have any mechanical upgrades, it has been overhauled to reflect upon its 20-year-long legacy.
Lotus has referenced the Exige Series 1 from the year 2000, which adds body-colored roof panels, side air intake pods and a matching rear wing, plus the black shark fin stone chip protector ahead of the rear wheel, to the car. The number “20” has been added to either end of the rear wing, while a special black-line silhouette of the car appears as a graphic gracing the front quarter and towards the rear bumper.
Customers have the choice of three heritage colors for their Exige Sport 410 20th Anniversary edition: “Chrome Orange,” “Laser Blue,” and “Calypso Red,” which all reference the Exige Series 1. In addition to this, Lotus will also paint the car in “Saffron Yellow” in homage to the company’s signature “Norfolk Yellow” hue, or in “Motorsport Black” or “Artic Silver.”
Nitron three-way adjustable dampers come as standard, meaning drivers can customize the suspension from race mode to road driving. A DAB digital radio with Bluetooth, cruise control, ultra-lightweight forged alloy wheels, and an Alcantara steering wheel all come as standard, while the carbon fiber sill trim, lightweight lithium-ion battery, and titanium lightweight exhaust are available as optional extras.
Lotus’ Exige Sport 410 20th Anniversary edition will cost £79,900 GBP (approx. $99,500 USD) and will be with customers later this year. Take a closer look at the car above.
