Lotus track car goes on sale following unveiling in Germany
Lotus Sports’ latest track car, the 2007 Lotus Sport Exige Cup 255, has gone on sale following its unveiling at the Essen Motorshow in Germany.
Powered by a 1796 cc supercharged engine developing 252 brake horse power (bhp) and driving through a 6-speed close ratio C64 gearbox, the car has a top speed of 160 mph and does 0-60 in under 3.9 seconds. Though radical in design, the car keeps true to the Lotus tradition of keeping weight down to a minimum, coming in at 950kg. UK fans will have to look overseas, however, as the Lotus Sport Exige Cup 255 is not currently available in the UK market.
