This is the Lotus Scura, which will be known as the "Stealth Edition" in Japan where it was unveiled today.
The Scura is a tweaked Exige S, with 260bhp squeezed from its supercharged engine thanks to a modified ECU. In standard form the Exige S has 220bhp, with 240bhp available from a performance pack.
Launch control, Ohlins 2-way adjustable dampers, and variable slip traction control, are all standard on the track day special.
Special matt "Phantom Black" paint gives the Stealth its name, and various components including sports seats, centre consol, oil cooler inlet valves and front splitter are made of carbonfibre to help reduce weight by 10kg over the standard car. High gloss "Phantom Black" triple stripes run the length of the car.
The Scura will reach 60mph in 4sec, 100mph in 9.9sec and a top speed of 152mph.
The car will be limited edition and will go on sale in the UK.
Order books open straight after this week’s Tokyo motor show and the car will cost £45,000 in the UK.
