New Lotus Exige Sport 410

As far as basic performance cars go, no one beats Lotus. Colin Chapman famously said:
“Simplify, then add lightness” and more than 65 years later, it remains Lotus’ guiding philosophy.

Weight is always the enemy and more power is usually the solution. Given that the Exige Sport 410 tips the scale at only 1,054 kg, it’s far from fat. That does not mean however that it does not have a power powertrain. The 3.5-litre supercharged V6 produces 410 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 310 lb.-ft. of torque from 3,000 rpm to 7000 rpm. For those that are mathematically challenged like me, that equates to 389 hp per tonne. The result is a car that will cover the 0-60 mph sprint in just 3.3 seconds and top out at 180 mph / 290 km/h.

The new Lotus Exige Sport 410 looks fantastic too. The aero bits are all functional and generate 150 kg of downforce at speed. Lotus describes the car as being forged through development. We’d love to find out how that feels.
