S1 Exige full carbon body (arguably the prettiest Lotus shape ever), carbon seats, console and even steering wheel makes this not only beautiful but extremely light.

Power comes from a built 2.4-litre VTEC Honda with added TVS 1320 Supercharger with very low kilometres. Massive torque and power makes this a super fast road car and a supercar-eating, super fun track weapon.

Everything has been done professionally by Lotus experts Simply Sports Cars, from the front-mounted shrouded intercooler to the custom TVS supercharger setup.

Upgraded brakes (AP Racing), upgraded suspension (Nitron with spring upgrades), machined rear uprights, 5-point harness, upgraded toe links , front bumpsteer kit, lightweight forged wheels – it’s got the lot.
