2010 Lotus Exige Cup 260
More power, better handling and less weight is the perfect formula for better race car. The Lotus Exige Cup 260 is one of the best track cars – In most common discipline the 100 km/h come in 4.1s and top speed is 245km/h. The car weights only 890kg, which guarantees awesome handling.
The supercharged and intercooled engine in the Exige Cup 260 has a maximum power output of 260 PS (257 hp) at 8000 rpm and a torque figure of 236 Nm (174 lbft) at 6000 rpm. The gear box is six speed manual.
The airflow management increases stability, reduces drag and, most importantly, maintains the impressive downforce figures of 42 kg at 160 km/h. But this is not everything. There are all new Lotus Sport lightweight forged alloy wheels - 5.65 kg (front) and 7.75 kg (rear).
A lot of carbon fiber elements make the car stronger and in that time lighter: Roof Panel, FIA and HANS compliant driver and passenger seats, One piece carbon fibre dash top panel, Rear tailgate, Centre tunnel, Front access panels, Front splitter (carbon chord), Side air intake ducts, Rear spoiler (carbon chord).
The brakes are not enormous, but for this superlight weight car do perfect job - 308 mm 2-piece cross-drilled and ventilated front discs and 282 mm cross-drilled and ventilated discs at the rear
The standard specification Lotus Exige Cup 260 is road legal within the European Union, and can be registered for road use.
The price will be around 64,000 euro, which is much for this incredible car.
