Hexagon Lotus London are delighted to offer this quite stunning new Exige Sport 350 which is presented in a classic colour combination. Lighter and faster than before - with revised bodywork, 51 kilograms lighter construction, revised suspension and increased levels of grip this Exige Sport 350 is 2.5 seconds faster than the Exige S around the famous Hethel circuit. The improved styling package includes the new gearshift mechanism with exposed design, which combine to deliver a purer sport scar driving experience. The lightweight louvered tailgate completes the dynamic sport styling.
The Lotus Exige Sport 350 is the pinnacle of Exige driving for motoring aficionados looking for high performance, agility, dynamic handling and an exhilarating driving experience. Fuel-injected and supercharged, the 3.5-litre V6 engine develops 345bhp (350PS) and delivers punchy 295lbs ft (400Nm) of torque, with the mid-engine set up providing the balance. Aero-optimised, Lotus-developed Dynamic Performance Management control, BOSCH Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), with exhilarating acceleration, the maximum speed is 170 mph, and 0 - 60 mph is achieved in just 3.7 seconds. The Exige Sport 350 weighs in at just 1125 kg.
EVO Magazine wrote, “The engine, not the most orchestral in the business, still surprises with its tractability and low down torque that feels like it’s permanently ready and waiting for you to ask it to get on with it, which it does with effortless ease. But it’s not the engine’s performance that grabs you, it’s that first gearshift. Whoever you worship thank them, because Lotus has a gearshift it can be proud of and you can use. It’s not only tight around the gate, but precise and intuitive and within three or four shifts your left hand drops instinctively to go up and down the ratios, no longer do you need to make a conscious effort to change gear and be prepared to wrestle it home. If this was the only upgrade Lotus had made to the Sport 350 we’d be very happy. But there’s more. The chassis work has resulted in an even more precise machine. There’s no longer a small delay when you first apply an amount of lock before the front axle reacts, instead it’s instant but crucially it’s not too quick nor edgy, but linear and precise and installs immediate confidence… and the best bit is you don’t need to be a lap record holder to experience the best of the Sport 350. It’s as forgiving as it is exciting, and soon you can drive it on the throttle, controlling every aspect with the slightest of inputs.”
