    approx. 65.870 EUR

    Pic will follow

    As promised



    and the details


    Re: New Lotus Sport Exige Cup 255

    Nice! What will happen to the 240R ? Is this it's replacement? Also, will it be roadworthy?

    Re: New Lotus Sport Exige Cup 255

    I think the Cup packages are road worth in the UK, but not sure about South Africa. It also seems relevant that the pictured car has normal headlamps, whereas the Cup cars in the U.S. come with black headlamp covers. Whether this is just a measure for the U.S. market, I don't know...

    Seems like Lotus is on the Porsche market strategy plan and is finally going to do some incremental upgrading every few years.

    I think Exige S owners can now also select a "British GT" package that bumps their power to 240R levels. It may even include Ohlins, an accusump, etc.

    So the 240R doesn't seem all that special anymore, other than being the first ones.

    Yes, I heard about the British GT version. That thing must be a real beast, seeing how just a couple more horses in the Exige S compared to the Elise R made such a huge difference.

    Here is the US version

    Alot cheaper than a GT3 Cup car, but it's a shame that it's not street legal...

    Our only criteria is that it is RHD and have full working headlights, indicators etc. they don't really care about emissions, noise levels here
