Lotus Exige V6 Cup - road car vs race car - autocar.co.uk
Lotus is on its way back, and the proof is the Lotus Exige V6 Cup - both in street trim, the Cup S, and the Cup R racer. Steve Sutcliffe puts them to the test. For most people, the standard Lotus Exige V6 would surely represent the ultimate kind of sports car. It weighs little more than a box of feathers, its interior is quite extraordinarily uncluttered by unnecessary luxuries, and its supercharged Toyota V6 engine provides it with enough grunt -- 345bhp -- to 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.
