Lotus Exige Sport 380 Is the Most Powerful Exige to Date. Lotus financial condition has never been this good for these past forty years. And, it is definitely worth celebrating, especially considering how the company went south in 2014 that it had no choice but to fire a third of its employees.
Two years ago Lotus could only produce less than 1,200 units of the car. But now, everything this company can send at least 2,000 cars annually to the market and the number of employees also has been increased by half.

It turns out, Lotus knows how to throw a festivity since the company chooses to launch new 2017 Lotus Exige Sport 380 to celebrate its happy occasion. Lotus claims that this is the fastest and the most powerful Exige road vehicle ever that will put other supercars to shame.

Interior Design of the new Lotus Exige Sport 380
Since this is Lotus we are talking about, it won’t be surprising to spot plenty of weight-saving materials in Exige Sport 380. Light carbon fiber is used to construct some parts of the car. And, the same material is also used for the seats. To decrease the weight, even more, this car also takes advantage of the lithium-ion battery, polycarbonate instead of glass in the rear window and also lightweight forged wheels.
As a result, the curb weight is reduced to only 2,425 pounds. Besides the lightweight structure, the special aero package that includes canard wings, carbon fiber air deflector, and many other new inventions also help to ensure high speed.
