Lotus Cars Unveils Exige Sport 380

Lotus Cars has revealed a new variant of its Exige sports car. The Sport 380 features a number of new lightweight components, including a carbon-fibre front splitter, revised front access panel, new rear wing, and rear diffuser surround, which are said to reduce the car's weight by 2.7 kilograms (kg), while a polycarbonate rear window saves 0.9 kg over the glass equivalent. Other features include carbon race seats, a lithium-ion battery, forged wheels, and grooved two-piece brake discs, which combine to cut a further 26.3 kg. This all helps to bring the kerb weight of the vehicle down to 1,100 kg. The aerodynamic package has also been tweaked so that around 140 kg of down force is created at maximum speed. The 3.5-litre V-6 supercharged engine has been tweaked to produce 375 hp and 410 Nm of torque and is available with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. However, further options to optimise performance are also available, including titanium exhaust, additional carbon-fibre panels, and Track Pack, which features Nitron two-way adjustable dampers and Eibach adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars.

Lotus Plans to Launch Convertible Version of the Evora 400 Roadster

Lotus is planning to launch a convertible version of the Evora 400 roadster. The model will be very similar to the hardtop version from the rocker panels up to the belt line and have two removable carbon fibre roof panels that will weigh about 6.5lbs each. The vehicle is to be powered by a supercharged 3.5-litre V6 engine, modified to generate 400bhp at 7,000 rpm and 302 lb-ft. of torque from 3,500 to 6,500 rpm.
