Lotus Introduces the Extreme Exige S Club Racer Coupe
It is obviously Lotus time these couple of days, since the Elise Anniversary Special Edition was previewed yesterday and Exige S Club Racer is new the next in the row. As the name suggests this Exige S will be implying the Club Racer principles, thus delivering even more dynamic and exhilarating performance. It will be offered in a coupe variant only.
The current model is build above the lightweight aluminium chassis-tub and also features aerodynamic composite bodywork. These facts will help its engine, the 3.5-litre supercharged V6, accelerate the track focused car from 0 to 62mph (0-100km/h) in no more than 4.0 seconds. The top speed is also astounding and it is 274 km/h (170 mph).
In particular, the club racer is 15kg lighter than the Exige S, measuring a total of 1161kg. Helping for this achievement are the lightweight battery and centre console that has been painted in body colour. Adding to this are the lighter doors and sports seats in leather/Alcantara accentuated by contrasting stitching.
In addition, the car will also have three driving settings: ‘Drive‘, ‘Sport' and ‘Race'. They will help the driver easily maintain control over the vehicle. What is more, the last two settings will help in the improvement of the throttle responsiveness.
Exige S Club Racer will be offered in four distinctive colors: Metallic White, Exige Orange, Metallic Yellow and Matt Black. The latter shade is also the one adorning components like the front splitter and rear wing, wing mirrors and rear transom, and more. There are also Club Racer decals above the side indicator as well as on the dashboard and seats.
The car is currently on sale and has a starting price of £56,900.
