Exige V6 Cup R

Exige V6 Cup R


Exige V6 Cup R Yellow

Racers want a proven edge and the Exige V6 Cup R has already earned its spurs as a highly competitive race car, with numerous pole positions and race wins in the Lotus Cup Europe.

The V6 Cup R is the full race version of the Exige V6. In addition to the Exige V6 Cup specification, a higher downforce, aerodynamic package, reducing the weight by a further 60kg, the fitting of race-specification dampers, with the option of a sequential gearbox that also features an increase in power output, are vital elements of the package, if desired.

If you believed that we could be focussed with other models in our line-up, the Exige V6 Cup R hones a very fine edge onto an already much-lauded sports car. Yet, as with other Lotus models, while it satisfies demands, the Cup R model remains undemanding of the driver. That is what ‘focus’ is all about and it means that you can race your Exige, knowing that it is a complete car, which allows you to master its finer points, without fear of the car taking over.
