Lotus Exige Cup 380 Is A Track Machine You Can Drive Home

Lotus Exige Cup 380 Is A Track Machine You Can Drive Home

When Lotus wants to make a vehicle quicker, it may add some power, but it also focuses on removing weight.

All of this cumulates into the Exige Cup 380 lapping the company's Hethel Test track in just 1:26, the quickest street-legal Lotus ever to be tested there.

Based on the already remarkable Exige Sport 380, the Exige Cup 380 has been thoroughly modified to produce a harder, more focused vehicle.

Sugary Drink Sales Fizzled After Soda Tax
The New Zealand Dental Association (NZDA) is keen to see the measure introduced in New Zealand. CT lawmakers are considering issuing a tax on sugary drinks, according to Fox 61 .

Tweaks to the bodywork and exterior, including a front windscreen wiper that rests in the vertical position, reduce drag and increase total downforce to 200kg; an increase of 43% over the Sport 380. Just like any other 380 model, motivation is provided by a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 packing 375 horsepower (280 kilowatts) and 302 pound-feet (410 Newton-meters) of torque. Lightweight parts come for the front splitter, access panel, roof, diffuser surround, side pods, tailgate, and rear wing - and they also deliver 441 pounds (200 kilograms) of downforce at 175 miles per hour (282 kph) - a 40 percent increase over the Sport 380.

More basic weight-saving measures such as doing away with the boot carpet and gas tailgate struts, as well as replacing standard interior trim pieces with lighter items, further help to reduce the car's mass. There is also an optional titanium exhaust system which saves 10kg off the rear of the auto. With the two elements working in combination, this huge boost in grip allows the vehicle to corner harder and faster which, given with the Exige's existing reputation as a driver's auto, elevates it to a whole new level.

The Exige has always been regarded as delivering benchmark handling, but owners of the Exige Cup 380 can configure the set-up, thanks to the Nitron two-way adjustable dampers and Eibach adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars fitted as standard.

Russia Relations At All-Time Low
Washington warned Moscow, and Russian troops at the base were not hit. "In some ways, they are too much alike", added the expert. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said.

The engine is coupled to a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission, and now features Lotus' open-gate manual gearbox design. Even the stability control can be adjusted to the driver's needs. Stopping power is provided by AP Racing forged, four-piston brake calipers and grooved performance two-piece brake discs. Buyers can spec their vehicle with an FIA compliant roll cage, full race harness, electrical cut-off, race steering wheel, and fire extinguisher controls as well as deleting the airbags. The Exige Cup 380's instrument panels have also been optimized with new graphics that make the information displayed easier to read at race pace. It can be ordered now, priced £83,000 including VAT (UK) and €109,900 (Germany).

Pricing starts at $106,399 dollars in the United Kingdom, while in Germany, the Exige Cup 380 starts at $117,990 based on current exchange rates.
