Lotus Exige Sport 380: Supercar Killer

Lotus Exige Sport 380: Supercar Killer

• Fastest Exige ever: 0-60 mph in 3.5 secs
• 375 hp and 352 hp per tonne
• Weighs from 1,066 kg dry and 1,100 kg kerb
• Aerodynamic downforce of 140 kg at top speed
• Nose-to-tail carbon components as standard

High powered, highly evolved, and ferociously fast, the Lotus Exige Sport 380 is the most
aggressive iteration yet for the Exige model line up.

Taking the fight straight to six-figure supercars, this new, top-of-the-range model carries over the
lessons learnt in the development of the acclaimed Exige Sport 350, launched last year, but with
significant revisions lowering weight, boosting power and enhancing aerodynamics.

Rather than relying excessively on electronics, or allow sterile interfaces to dull the experience, the
extreme Exige Sport 380 offers a pure, undiluted drive that has to be experienced to be fully
appreciated.

Unrivalled in its class: faster, sharper, and more direct than adversaries, the Exige Sport 380 is
definitely not for the timid. With a dry weight of just 1,066 kg with lightweight options, and boasting
a potent power-to-weight ratio of 352 hp per tonne, the new, pure-bred Lotus has been conceived
to out perform and out manoeuvre so called supercars. The new Exige is blisteringly fast off the
line, dispatching 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-fibre
components and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as standard, every inch of the Exige has been
carefully cultivated. Firmly defined as a Lotus for the enthusiast, the car can be seen as an
expression of intense engineering - challenging accomplished drivers to extract the car’s true
potential.

Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc, commented: “We’ve saved something special for our
last new car of 2016. We have built upon the foundations of the excellent Exige Sport 350 and
developed a perfectly proportioned, intuitive and attainable supercar for real roads. The cut in
weight is nothing short of drastic and, combined with the hike in power and its enhanced agility,
we’ve created something exceptional - far greater than the sum of its parts. The Exige Sport 380 is
so good, that it is no longer the best in class, it’s now in a class of its own.”
