Lotus has released the extreme 430-horsepower coupe Exige Cup 430

Yet it won't fly away, as its revised aero package generates 485 lbs. of downforce near its 180 miles per hour top speed.

Once upon a time there was the humble 350hp Lotus Exige Cup, a vehicle unsurprisingly very well received on PistonHeads. The vehicle called the Cup 430 has replaced the track Cup 380, the circulation of which was limited to around 60 copies.

Thanks to its supercharged, 3.5-liter V-6, the Cup 430 UE gains 55 hp over the Exige Cup 380, but it weighs about 27 lbs less than the 380. While the new coupe Lotus Exige Cup 430 "shod" in the wheels dimension 17 inch front and 18 inch rear combine tires with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2.

Lotus used to be the British vehicle company that was heralded for its simplicity in providing thrills behind the wheel. The capacity of the unit increased from 380 to 430 horsepower, and maximum torque reaches 440 Nm.

Chicago receives 2020 NBA All-Star Game; Cleveland had been in running
The big difference between then and now, Silver said, is the game has become part of a series of week-long events. But Cleveland will have to wait until at least 2021 for its next NBA All-Star Game .

Lotus has ditched everything it possibly can from the auto in order to boost its power-to-weight ratio and handling prowess, meaning that everything that remains is absolutely crucial in ensuring it still qualifies as a road-legal vehicle, albeit one capable of generating 220kg of downforce evenly split across front and rear axles.

Unsurprisingly, carbon-fibre is the main material that contributes to this, and you'll find it on the front splitter, front access panel, roof, diffuser surround, air-intake side pods, one-piece tailgate and the motorsport-derived rear wing. The traction control is also a six-way variable affair, allowing either 1, 3, 6, 9, or 12 percent slip, or all the slides in "off" mode. Indeed if you really want to you can delete the airbag and save another 3kg, for a lightest dry weight of 1,056kg. The coupe Exige Cup 430 drove a lap in 1 minute 24.8 seconds - 1.2 seconds faster than the track Roadster 3-Eleven.

Stopping power comes courtesy of four-piston AP Racing brake calipers and new performance two-piece, J-hook brake discs.

Prices for the Lotus Exige Cup 430 begin at £99,800 and is available to order now, although delivery dates have yet to be confirmed.
