Saving the hardest until last, the new Lotus Exige 350 Special Edition is a fitting completion to the trilogy of Lotus 50th celebration editions.
Based on the most extreme Exige to date, the Sport 350, the new special edition adds a number of lightweight, performance-enhancing features, as well as unique paint and interior options as standard.
Long regarded as the enthusiast’s favourite, the new Lotus Exige 350 Special Edition takes the model’s benchmark handling and raw performance and adds a sense of occasion with remapped electronics and weight-saving measures.
Packing a supercharged 345 hp, V6 3.5 litre engine, and weighing 26 kg less than the Exige Sport 350, the new sub 1.1 tonne Lotus Exige 350 Special Edition accelerates to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 170 mph.
It’s also capable of the lapping the famous Hethel track in 1 minute 29.8 seconds.
Helping to celebrate the company’s 50 years in Norfolk , the special edition coupe is limited to 50 examples, available on a first-come, first-served basis at £61,900.
