Lotus has launched a new limited edition Club Racer based on the 218bhp Exige S.Unfortunately the Club Racer is not, as the name might suggest, a lighter, faster Exige S. Rather you get the full compliment of options and unique paint scheme and decals. Don't be disappointed though; the Exige S that forms the basis of the Club Racer should be hardcore enough for most, with a 0-60mph of 4.1 seconds. Plus, you get the Sport pack thrown in, which includes Lotus' traction control system, roll-over hoop and sports seats. The real benefit comes on the way home from the track, when you can make use of the air-conditioning, push start button, electric windows, iPod-compatible head unit and noise insulation panelling.There's even an optional cup holder thrown in for free, but then you'd expect that if you were paying £39,950 for your Club Racer, when you could get an Exige S Touring for £3000 less. But as the price indicates, only 25 Club Racers will be produced, so for guaranteed exclusivity there's no better option in the current Lotus line-up.
