Lotus introduced the fast 430 HP 430 coupe Exige Cup

While the new coupe Lotus Exige Cup 430 "shod" in the wheels dimension 17 inch front and 18 inch rear combine tires with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. Put simply, this is the most extreme Exige yet. The novelty has received the name of the Cup 430 and took the family seat track modification Cup 380, published edition of 60 cars. Lotus are experts when it comes to making its cars ludicrously light, and the Exige 380 is no different.

Also part of the package is a variable traction control function with five pre-set traction levels (1%, 3%, 6%, 9%, 12% slip) as well as insurance worrying "off".

The result is a 316kW/440Nm race-ready road vehicle which weighs in at a very healthy 1,056kg. It needs just 3.3 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, and it doesn't run out of steam until 290 km/h (180 mph).

Spin-bowling all-rounder Moeen Ali, meanwhile, is yet to feature in the warm-up matches as he continues to struggle with a side strain.


As for the body kit, the Cup 430 gets an array of aero elements including an ultra-lightweight front clam with unique carbon fiber ducts, new front splitter and air curtain mechanism, lightweight rear clam panel, and a large motorsport wing.

Handling-wise, the Exige Cup 430 has things covered thanks to tricks such as a revised steering arm geometry, new Nitron three-way adjustable dampers, and Eibach adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars.

Stopping power comes courtesy of four-piston AP Racing brake calipers and new performance two-piece, J-hook brake discs. The system is created to give "improved bite and debris clearance and reduce distortion and vibration and to deliver consistent pedal feel and stopping power lap after lap". Thanks to these two factors plus the extra power, the 430 is fastest production vehicle to ever lap the Hethel test track.

HEAR Keith Urban's New Song "Female" Inspired by Harvey Weinstein
Country star Keith Urban has released a new song called " Female ", which was inspired by the disgraced producer and the way society treats women.


Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc, said: "This is the vehicle that we always wanted to build, and I am sure that all Lotus enthusiasts will be delighted with the end product".

The latest "new" Lotus to arrive is the Exige Cup 430, which gets the 430bhp Toyota V6 from the Evora to deliver the most hardcore Exige yet. "This auto has no rivals - inside or outside of its price bracket - and it's no exaggeration when we say that nothing can keep up with this Exige on the road or track".

Prices will start at £99,800 in the United Kingdom and €127,500 in Europe, depending on the individual country's Value Added Tax system.
