The British automaker, Lotus returns with something new, aiming to unleash one of their fastest rides ever produced. Recently Lotus provided a look at the ‘supercar killer’, The Lotus Exige Sport 380. The machine is the fastest Exige ever built capable of a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds. The futuristic design is pushed by a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 that offers 375 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque.
According to Lotus the new Exige offers a “pure” driving experience and does so with the help of its six-speed “open gate” manual transmission. The car weighs in at just 2,425 pounds doing so thanks to unique elements such as a polycarbonate rear glass, lithium-ion battery, and carbon fiber elements. There is also an optional carbon fiber package with a one-piece carbon roof panel and a louvered trunk lid. While there is no word on whether the car will hit the roads here in the states, we can dream. Have a look at the ‘supercar killer’ in the gallery below and keep it locked for more outstanding examples of speed coming shortly.
