Only 81 LF1s will be made, with each benefitting from unique finishes and myriad upgrades. There's a price to pay for exclusivity though, as ably demonstrated here – the list price is £62,900, some £8290 more than a standard Exige S.
The most notable revision, compared to the standard S, is the adoption of a bespoke black-and-gold paint scheme which is designed to evoke memories of Lotus's F1 livery from the 1970s and 1980s.
Other cosmetic changes include matt gold alloy wheels, red brake calipers, black-and-gold badging and interior trim, and an individually numbered limited edition carbonfibre build plate.
Bolstering the standard Exige S's specification further, and helping justify the substantial premium a little, is the addition of high-performance Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo tyres, more powerful two-piece floating disc brakes and air conditioning.
