Club racer weighs 1161kg - 15kg less than the standard Lotus Exige
This is the Lotus Exige S Club Racer, a track-focused version of the standard car.
On sale now from £56,900, the Club Racer is only available as a coupe. The addition of a front splitter, rear wing and flat underside combine to give it 42kg of aerodynamic downforce at 100mph.
It is also 15kg lighter than the standard car, as 1161kg. The weight saving has come from a new lightweight battery, lightweight centre console, lighter doors and lightweight sports seats.
Powered by a 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine it hits 0-62mph in 4.0sec and has a top speed of 170 mph. It averages 28.0mpg.
The driver can select from Drive, Sport and Race settings, which alter the traction slip thresholds and throttle responsiveness.
The Club Racer costs £2400 more than the standard Exige S, but Lotus claims it has £4500 worth of extra kit.
Colour choices include metallic white and yellow, matt black and orange. The front splitter, rear wing, front access panel, roof panel, wing mirrors and rear body work section are in matt black.
