    The new Lotus Exige CUP 430: Unlimited Edition

    http://www.lotuscars.com/news/corporate/new-lotus-exige-cup-430-unlimited-edition

    Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc said, “...This car 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.”

    It will depends on the suspension set up and the tires. A 1000 kg race car on slicks with 430hp will be very, very fast.


    Re: The new Lotus Exige CUP 430: Unlimited Edition

    Isn't this the car that all the purists want Porsche to build?

    This is a road car, not a race car on slicks.

    I think it will still be very, very quick with weight so low and reasonable power if paired with proper tires.


    Re: The new Lotus Exige CUP 430: Unlimited Edition

    I like it, but it's ridiculous to release specials at a rate of once per month...

    Sure thing, yet, claiming it is the fastest car without a rival in any price segment, and on either track or road, coming from a CEO, is a bit bold.

    The previous CUP variant, the Exige CUP 380, was announced only 6 months ago. Many customers are feeling p***ed now, rightfully so, but such has been the game at Lotus for the past many years.

    Man, they are certainly milking that thing.

    pricing is crazy ..

     


    Re: The new Lotus Exige CUP 430: Unlimited Edition

    They go the swiss way - if u sell less just make them more expensive


    Re: The new Lotus Exige CUP 430: Unlimited Edition

    Customers who pay 130k on a car except a high level of craftsmanship, something that a Lotus simply can’t offer. Pricing cars in this price range will be the nail on their coffin.

    Lotus quality is really quite good these days, but the price is just too much bearing in mind where the standard Exige sits in the market.
