In 2017 Lotus announced a new and more exciting Exige, with the new Sport 410. It was designed to be the ultimate road driving car, without any rival in its category.
The latest Exige range has an advanced chassis, suspension, and powertrain for better performance on the road and on the track. The 3.5-liter supercharged engine has a 410 hp and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed transmission.
Lotus has made a name of itself due to very light vehicles and a high power-to-weight ratio. The new Exige 410 Sport is not an exception but more like a confirmation. It has 389 hp/tonne (dry weight). Due to this, the performance is at a high level with a 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 290 kph (180 mph). For a good road-holding, the Exige Sport 410 has an aerodynamic package that generates up to 150 kg (330 lbs) of downforce.
But the performance on the road is nothing without pleasure. This is why the Exige Sport 410 is also offered as a roadster, to offer the original pleasure of driving with the top-down as the original Lotus was built. And, for a personal touch, the customers can personalize their car with the Lotus Exclusive program, which combines traditional British craftsmanship with modern design.
