The Lotus Exige is ending production, and Lotus are sending it out with a series of Final Edition’s that feature more power. The Exige started life in the year 2000 as a hard top coupe version of the Elise roadster, and was powered by a naturally aspirated 1.8L Rover K Series Inline 4 engine. It wasn’t until the Series 3 came along in 2013 that the Exige would stretch it’s legs out and separate itself from the Elise. Gone was the Inline 4 engine, replaced by a bigger V6 unit that would see the Exige line-up slowly increase it’s power output and cement it’s performance credentials.
With a power-tp-weight ratio of 378 hp per tonne, the Exige Sport 420 has plenty of performance on tap in a small lightweight package. Peak power is rated as the name suggests at 420 hp with a nice flat torque curve delivering 315 lb-ft. The 0-60 mph acceleration is done and dusted in only 3.3 seconds, and it will go on to top out at 180 mph. Adjustability of the suspension is done with Eibach anti-roll bars and Nitron dampers that allow for different high and low speed compression settings. Sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires provide the grip, and forged, four-piston AP Racing brakes make sure the car will stop.
