An unbeatable capability that is a true winner when tyre hits track, being behind the wheel is an experience like no other. Simply put, it is a car that can be used and enjoyed every single day.

Aerodynamic genius

Making the most of the high speed abilities and then developing these ground breaking levels was paramount in the development of the Exige Cup 380. Smart and refined features have been included such as the new wind tunnel that introduces aerodynamic elements, allowing this Exige to deliver up to 200 kg of aerodynamic downforce at a top speed of 175 mph. The bodywork is accomplished and tuned to contribute to this increased downforce. Even the Exige’s windscreen wiper has been aero tuned - now resting in a vertical position to avoid disrupting air flow. To harness the huge hike in downforce, and provide increased mechanical grip, the Exige Cup 380 features larger rear tyres (285/30 ZR18 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2) as standard.


The smart and highly acclaimed Lotus manufacturing involves advanced and detailed focus on making their models lightweight and high achievers. The key to the new Exige Cup 380 being able to reach an incredible low weight of 1,057kg is the adoption of carbon fibre and extensive engineering. The strong design of the Exige Cup 380 partnered with a durable aluminium chassis architecture makes this supercar a bold and impressive model on the roads.The high-gloss, handmade carbon fibre components of the car include new front splitter, front access panel, bargeboards, diffuser surround, a new one-piece tailgate reducing weight by 6.5kg and a straight-cut high efficiency motorsport derived rear wing.

Outstanding performance

The new Lotus Exige Cup 380 instantly roars to life at the touch of the pedal. Quick off the line and carrying a 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine with six-spreed manual transmission as standard. Showing off an impressive 375 hp at 6,700 rpm and 410 Nm (302 lbft) of torque at 5,000 rpm. Offering four user selectable ESP modes (Drive, Sport, Race and Off) so you really can experience the Exige Cup 380 to its full potential in whatever style suits you. Sport, Race and Off modes provide a finer degree of driver control, just showcasing what makes Lotus engineering so desirable. More upgrades and developments include functions such as a variable traction control, that works with the ECU and allows the amount of wheel slip to be in the drivers control. With many more adaptions on offer, you can really make your new Exige Cup 380 your own, with benchmark handling and a performance like no other.
