Highly powered, highly evolved, and ferociously fast, the Lotus Exige Sport 380 is the most aggressive iteration yet for the Exige model line up. This new, top-of-the-range model carries over the lessons from the development of the Exige Sport 350, launched last year, but with significant revisions lowering weight, boosting power and enhancing aerodynamics. The extreme Exige Sport 380 offers a pure, undiluted drive that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
With impressive energy the Exige Sport 380 will travel from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 178 mph. From the intricately engineered exposed-gear-change linkage, to the swathes of carbon-fiber components and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tiers as standard, every inch of the Exige has been carefully cultivated. Firmly defined as a Lotus for the enthusiast, accomplished drivers will be challenged to extract the car’s true potential, this Exige is an expression of intense engineering.
The Lotus Exige Sport 380 is also available with an optional six-speed automatic gearbox, where drivers can select gears sequentially via the forged aluminum paddles located behind the steering wheel, or rely on the gearbox’s fully automatic mode. The automatic gearbox option will be available from Spring 2017.
The Lotus Exige Sport 380 features Lotus’ Dynamic Performance Management (DPM), which provides enhanced ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings. Proportionally increasing throttle response, lowering traction slip thresholds and removing under steer recognition, it provides the driver with a finer level of control before the system intervenes. DPM also utilizes an engine exhaust bypass valve at mid-to-high engine speeds, further reducing back pressure to boost throttle response and engine performance in both ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings.
As with all Lotus cars, aerodynamic efficiency plays a key role in the Exige, helping it to drastically expand its performance envelope. Extensive CFD modeling work has allowed Lotus’ design team to fine tune specific areas, in order to deliver a substantial overall improvement. The revised front access panel modifies the air flow exiting the car’s horizontally mounted radiators, before it travels over the car, while the carbon front spoiler and rubber lip spoiler combined with the carbon barge boards reduce pressure under the vehicle.
