The Lotus Exige V6 Cup is almost the dictionary definition of a sports car. Plenty of power and not a lot of weight. In the pursuit of purity, Lotus has divested the Exige of unnecessary luxuries and installed a supercharged V6 engine from Toyota.
As a result, the Exige S Cup weighs not much more than 1000kg, which provides a power-to-weight ratio that will embarrass all but the most ambitious supercar drivers. Sutters travels to Lotus' test track in Hethel to drive the Exige V6 Cup S road car and the Exige V6 Cup R racer.
