Lotus has unveiled the newest member of the Exige family – the Exige Sport 410. The Lotus Exige 410 slots in between the Exige Sport 350 and Exige Cup 430, but luckily many of the Exige Cup 430’s parts have been added to the Sport 410.
The soul of the Exige Sport 410 is the same 3.5L V6 that powers the Exige Cup 430. The recalibrated engine generates 410 hp at 7,000 rpm 310 lb-ft. from 3,000 rpm to 7000 rpm. The Exige Sport 410 can reach 60 mph in only 3.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 180 mph, which is the same as the Exige Cup 430.
Under the skin, the Exige Sport 410 also gets the same chassis, suspension and dampers from the Exige Cup 430, but its three-way adjustable Nitron dampers have been retuned for the road. Eibach adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars have also been added. The Exige Sport 410 rides on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires 285/30 ZR18 rear and 215/45 ZR17 front and all that fun can be brought to a stop with AP Racing forged, four-piston calipers and performance two-piece J-hook brake discs.
Other upgrades include a full exhaust system in titanium and a number of high-gloss, visible weave carbon fiber components including instrument binnacle, sill covers, barge boards and roof. Other motorsport options include electrical cut-off and fire extinguisher controls, airbag deletion, a non-airbag steering wheel, 4-point harnesses and a dealer fit FIA compliant roll cage.
Inside the Exige Sport 410 gets an Alcantara steering wheel and carbon fiber sports seats trimmed with either a combination of Alcantara and leather or full leather.
Now for the bad news, the Lotus Exige Sport 410 is not coming to the U.S.
