Another Lotus? I can’t keep up! Indeed. It’s the Lotus Exige Cup 430, and you really won’t be able to keep up. It’s the fastest Lotus road car ever. The 430bhp 3.5-litre V6 engine from the Evora GT430 (the last new Lotus) is slotted into the welterweight Exige, the result being a 3.2sec 0-60mph time and a 180mph top speed. It also boasts the quickest lap yet for a road car around Lotus’s Hethel test track, the Cup 430 being a full second quicker than that Evora. A Nürburgring lap will happen in spring 2018, though Lotus won’t tell us the target… Those red stripes mark out a special edition, presumably?
