Lotus Sport, the motor sport division of Lotus Cars Ltd., developed two higher performance versions of the 2006 Model Year Lotus Exige, the Lotus Exige Cup and the Lotus Exige Cup 240, both developed for track use straight out of the box.
The Lotus Exige Cup cars are based on the new 2006 Model Year Exige and are completely track ready sports coupes with uprated clutch, sports exhaust, adjustable suspension, uprated brakes, limited slip differential, switchable traction control, a T45 steel roll-over hoop and A-Frame with harness mounts, fuel and ignition kill switches and a fully plumbed in fire extinguisher system. An FIA approved 6 point roll cage is a no cost option.
The Cup 240 uses a supercharged and intercooled high revving 1.8 litre four cylinder engine producing 243hp (181 kw). This vast amount of extra power and torque mean that the cam change between the low and high speed now takes place at around 4000 rpm, giving a smooth and linear surge of power from 4000 rpm all the way to the maximum 8300 rpm. The Roots-type Eaton M62 supercharger is run from the crankshaft, and has an integral bypass valve for part load operation.

Price $49,900
This car is #13 of 15 made in 2006, has 9319 miles on the odo, and has received the following upgrades for speed and track reliability:
12/2015 New built engine- EIBACH VALVE SPRINGS stronger valve springs and FERRERA VALVES

12/2015 Replace Accusump with Moroso racing oil pan. New aluminum oil coolers. Oil pump
2020 BOE 300 tune
2020 Rebuilt transmission with altered third and fourth ratios for better race match

12/2015 Aluminum radiator to replace plastic. Remove heater
2015 carbon fiber splitter
12/2015 Wheel studs instead of bolts
12/2015 Quieter FEATHERLIGHT FREEFLOW Racing muffler with lower dB to meet most HPDE track sound limits.

Glad you were able to sell it! Solid deal. I was seriously considering it but then I thought about what the conversation would have looked like with my wife LOL.

You are missed, Bruce. I valued your direction as my very first COM instructor.

Cheers!

very difficult to convert to street. Factory cage, suspension, brakes, no cat, etc.
