Lotus has a fine pedigree when it comes to producing lightweight, performance oriented small cars. The Exige Sport 410 is no different, offering a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds and a dry kerbweight of just over 1,000 kilos. The Exige Sport 410 is designed to be the ultimate road drive, unrivalled in its class. We certainly wouldn’t be surprised, given these figures.
The car has been developed directly from from the track focused Exige Cup 430 and features the same advanced chassis, suspension and powertrain set-up. The Exige Sport 410 has been developed to generate 150 kg of downforce, sharing design cues from the Exige Cup 430, adopting a visually arresting revised lightweight front clam panel incorporating wider grilles and carbon fibre air curtains and front splitter.
As with all Lotus cars, the Exige Sport 410 has outstanding handling and lightweight agility engineered into its very DNA. Conveying an extraordinary level of tactility and precision, it’s developed to perform at its very best with maximum enjoyment and driver feedback on the road.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc said, “With every new Lotus we look to move the bar higher and apply technology and development ideas drawn from top-of-the-range models. Our agility as a company means that the lessons learnt today can quickly be incorporated into the cars of tomorrow and the Exige Sport 410 is a perfect example of this. We have taken the Exige Cup 430, the ultimate track-centric Exige, and developed it into the perfect road orientated sports car, ensuring that we stay ahead of rivals when it comes to cars that deliver a truly engaging analogue driving experience.”
