SYDNEY: The new Exige S Club Racer possesses 42 kg of aerodynamic down force at 100 mph, rear wing and flat underside, all contributing to its enhanced performance and handling balance.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc, said: “Factoring the Club Racer ethos into the Exige enhances the track-focussed potential of this important model. It encompasses our legendary benchmark in handling, with lightweight and efficient construction and that we will always put a peerless and pure driving experience first.”
At 1161 kg, it is lighter by 15 kg compared to the Exige S, because of its new lightweight battery, lightweight centre console in body colour, lighter doors and lightweight sports seats in leather or Alcantara with colour coded stitching. Traction slip thresholds (‘Drive’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings) allowing the driver enhanced vehicle control before intervention is required can be altered via a driver-selectable switch which is now fitted as standard. Both ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings increase throttle responsiveness.
Each Lotus Exige S Club Racer features a body coloured light weight centre console, Leather, or Alcantara (no cost), lighter sports seat trim option, Colour-coded stitching on seats and door cards, Colour-coded seat hoops, Sports steering wheel, ‘Drive’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings for Traction slip thresholds, Matt Black distinguishing exterior trim pack and ‘Exige S CR’ decals externally and on dashboard stereo blanking-plate as standard.
The Exige S Club Racer is available in Metallic White, Exige Orange, Metallic Yellow and Matt Black.
Lotus says the additional equipment amounts to £4,500 worth of extra value, for £2,400 more than the standard Exige S. Available to order now, prices for the Lotus Exige S Club Racer start at £56,900.
