    MORE POWER FOR FACELIFTED LOTUS EXIGE S

    “The lightweight Exige has one of the highest specific power outputs of any globally emissions certified car and 133 hp per litre is a perfect demonstration of Colin Chapman’s philosophy of performance through light weight and of Lotus’ relentless pursuit of efficiency. The same technology that makes a lightweight car a high performer also makes it efficient – how many cars have performance figures of 0–100 km/h in 4.77 secs but produce only 199 g/km CO2” Mike Kimberley, Chief Executive of Group Lotus said.

    Lotus has unveiled a facelifted version of its Exige S model for 2010.The 2010 model year also sees the introduction of a few key changes to the Exige’s exterior to enhance the aesthetics and improve aerodynamic performance.First sales of the updated Exige S will start in Europe this May.

    Highlights include a restyled front end and a new, larger, rear wing that not only reduces drag, but also gives a more muscular stance. The restyled front end includes a larger, more angular air intake mouth to help funnel more air through the radiator.

    The restyled front end, meanwhile, includes a larger air intake mouth to help funnel more air through the radiator and to improve the efficiency of the engine system. Ahead of the front wheels on either side of the main aperture, two larger air intakes increase the airflow to the twin oil coolers.

    The rear wing has been adopted from the Exige GT3 concept first shown in Geneva in 2007 and also serves to increase the stiffness of the entire rear structure as well as providing downforce figures of 42 kg at 160 km/h.

    Lotus explains that since the Exige S2 was released in 2004, the performance has increased from 142kW through 164kW to finally 179kW in its current guise, with these new exterior features engineered to fully exploit this power.

    The contents of the Touring pack, for the Exige S includes:

    Full leather or Microfibre suede-effect interior
    Leather trimmed centre console
    Leather handbrake gaiter
    Sound system iPod connection
    Full carpets, with embroidered logo
    Auxiliary driving lights (in markets where legally allowed)
    Sound insulation kit
    Cup holder

    The Exige S Sport pack includes:

    Bilstein sports dampers
    Traction control
    Adjustable front anti-roll bar
    T45 roll bar, with integrated harness mounts

    The Exige S Performance Pack – more punch, more ability for Exige S:

    308 mm front cross-drilled and vented discs with AP Racing four piston callipers
    Uprated front and rear brake pads
    Full length upsized roof scoop
    Variable slip traction control
    Uprated vehicle performance through enhanced power and torque delivery

    With the Exige performance pack, the power is raised to 240 PS / 179 kW (minimum) at 8000 rpm courtesy of a Magnuson/Eaton M62 supercharger, new faster flowing injectors and higher torque clutch system and an upsized roof scoop to feed more air to the supercharger intercooler system.

    This hike in power, together with an increase in torque to 170 lbft / 230 Nm /23.5 kgm at 5,500 rpm from the standard 158.6 lbft / 215 Nm / 22 kgm at 5500rpm, helps whisk the Performance Pack Exige S from zero to 60mph in 4.5 secs and 0-100km/h in 4.77 secs, and on to 100mph in 11.97 secs. Top speed rises to 145 mph.

    The power and torque of the 240 PS engine is increased across the rev range giving even more flexibility. Despite these high levels of performance the fuel economy is impressive with a new combined figure of 8.5 litres / 100 km and 199 g/km CO2 – reduced from 9.1 litres / 100 km (combined) and 216 g/km CO2 for the 2009 Model Year Exige. Continuous engineering improvements over the last year including careful whole vehicle optimisation has enabled this sportscar to be even better for fuel economy and emissions.

    199 g/km CO2
    8.5 litres/100 km (33.2 mpg) Combined Cycle
    11.9 litres/100 km (23.7 mpg) Urban Cycle
