Exige S Club Racer

Applying the Lotus refined Club Racer principles to the already stunning Exige S results in the most inspiring version of an already class-leading sports car. With a reputation of outshining many cars in its class, the 345 bhp supercharged power, coupled with precise handling, provides outstanding performance that’s absolutely guaranteed to thrill with total confidence.

The Exige S is a model that already excels, thanks to its lightweight aluminium chassis-tub and aerodynamically enhanced composite bodywork. Its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine delivers exciting performance, benchmark handling and a pure driving experience combined with a 4.0 seconds 0-62mph (0-100km/h) acceleration time and a top speed of 274 km/h (170 mph). 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.

The Exige S Club Racer is available in Metallic White, Exige Orange, Metallic Yellow and Matt Black (option). The front splitter, rear wing, front access panel, roof panel, wing mirrors and rear transom are in matt black. Club Racer decals inside on the dashboard and seats and outside above the side indicator identify this latest special addition to the Exige range.

CHASSIS

The Lotus Exige S Roadster uses the same state of the art extruded and bonded aluminium chassis tub as the Exige S Coupe. This maintains excellent torsional rigidity whilst sticking to Lotus' core principal by remaining extremely lightweight. This extruded aluminium chassis technology underpins all current Lotus products and provides an exceptionally strong base to apply Lotus' legendary ride and handling setup.

wheels

The Exige S Club Racer incorporates 17" front and 18" rear wheels and uses Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres as standard for ultimate performance. A double wishbone suspension arrangement utilising Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs is incorporated; allied to the front and rear anti-roll bars this setup contributes to the Exige S Roadster having phenomonal mechanical grip as well as the characteristic sporty but compliant ride that Lotus is famous for. The lightweight nature of the Exige model line allows the vehicle to use an unassisted steering system. This ensures that the system responds intuitively and the driver has ultimate connection to the road.
