Lotus Exige Cup 430 Is The Meanest Exige To Date

Lotus Exige Cup 430

Novelty called Cup 430 was replaced in the lineup track Cup 380, which was issued in the amount of 60 cars. As the name implies, there's a healthy boost of power included - motivation comes from the same supercharged 3.5-liter Toyota V6 used inside the Exige 380, but with a jump from 380 horsepower (283 kilowatts) up to 430 horsepower (320 kilowatts). The coupe Exige Cup 430 drove a lap in 1 minute 24.8 seconds - 1.2 seconds faster than the track Roadster 3-Eleven.

The most extreme civil Exige accelerates to 96 km/h from standstill in 3.2 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than with a modification of the Cup 380.

We've seen recently the Elise Cup 260, the Evora GT430, and a myriad of bespoke models, and that's only during the past few months - and Lotus doesn't show any signs of fatigue.

Thanks to a new Edelbrock supercharger and water-to-air charge cooler, new intake plumbing, a larger throttle body and an all titanium free-flow exhaust system, all developed specifically for this vehicle, the big V6 is rated for 316kW at 7000 revs, and 440Nm at 4000rpm. It's got more torque, too, producing 325 pound-feet (440 Newton-meters) of it.


The new front clam with special carbon fibre ducts has wider radiator openings, to allow for a new front splitter and air curtain mechanism to reduce drag, while a new lighter rear clam panel supports a larger, straight motorsport wing, high-mounted to increase downforce without affecting the car's drag coefficient. The unit is linked as standard to a close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission with the famous open-gate design.

Handling-wise, the Exige Cup 430 has things covered thanks to tricks such as a revised steering arm geometry, new Nitron three-way adjustable dampers, and Eibach adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars.

"As well as a significant power hike, the Cup 430 has benefited from extensive development in areas essential to Lotus' DNA, in order to ensure that the full potential of the Exige's incredible chassis can be exploited".
