Lotus gets horsepower crazy with Exige FA

Lotus has created this special 400 hp racecar version of the Exige. With an extremely lightweight design coming in at only 1874 lbs, this allows an incredible power-to-weight ratio of under 4.7 lbs per hp.

American car companies aren’t the only ones going horsepower crazy these days. Lotus Sport has created the Lotus Sport Exige, a motorsport version of the cool coupe we don’t get here in the U.S. This little sucker has 400 horsepower and 295 ft. lb of torque under that rear hood. Don’t get too excited this is a racer, the interior is sparse with nothing but right hand steering wheel, one Sparco seat and some switches. But man it looks badass.
