The Lotus Exige S has developed a cult following and a dedicated fan base since the first Lotus Exige S 240 was unveiled in 2006. Over the last 4 model years several hundred Exige Cup Cars have been sold, either specifically for race and track use or for a pure road going driving experience. The latest Exige S 260, with 257 hp, takes the 84 lbs weight savings introduced in the last years model, combines them with the extensive body and aerodynamic improvements and revisions introduced on the 2010 Exige in March 2009 and tops them off with new components and technologies to produce the most focused and pure Exige yet.

Roger Becker, Director of Vehicle Engineering for Lotus said, "The Lotus Exige S 260 is the epitome of the Lotus brand philosophy of performance through lightweight. Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus, once said "Adding power makes you faster on the straights; subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere" and the Exige S 260 totally proves this, being one of the most exhilarating, focused and pure sportscars on the road today."

The 2010 Model Year Exige S 260 is fully homologated for road use in Europe and key markets in Asia and North America - a must have for many race competition program where a road legal car has to be entered.

Exterior Design

The 2010 Model Year Exige S 260 takes the design and aerodynamic changes first introduced on the Exige S earlier this year to enhance the look and improve aerodynamic performance.

The lightweight, unpainted carbon chord composite rear wing is based on the design from the Exige GT3 road car concept shown at the Geneva Motorshow in 2007. Compared to the 2009 Model Year Exige S 260 tailgate-mounted wing, it is 7.1 inches wider and mounted 1.8 inches higher and 2.4 inches further back. It is attached to the rear bodyshell clam via rear end plates which not only increases the stiffness of the whole structure but also ensures that as much of the airflow as possible passes over the rear wing. This careful airflow management increases stability, reduces drag and, most importantly, maintains an impressive downforce.
