This magnificent limited edition Lotus Exige CR in factory matte black is up for sale. Read on for the details.
Rare LIMITED EDITION Lotus Exige CR. This exceptional car is one of only a handful in Australia and in its stunning factory matte black is a real head turner. The Circuit Racer (CR) edition came with a number of upgrades that set it apart from the standard Exige and positioned it perfectly as a car that would suit a Sunday drive or eat up the race track. It has since had further improvements, both cosmetically and for performance.
The car boasts a powerful 1.8L Toyota supercharged inline 4 engine, producing upwards of 250hp (more with current modifications). With additions of carbon fibre interior panels and a lightweight design the car maintains a low power-to-weight ratio, punching through the 100km/h mark in 4 seconds. With only 30,070km on the clock, you can be confident you’re getting a car that’s performing at the highest level.
With its recently installed genuine Lotus supercharged sports exhaust and high flow pipes (decat), the car not only sounds tough, but has the capacity to deliver, whether on the road or track. To top off the major performance modifications, the CR has been upgraded with a high quality 2ZZ air induction system, optimizing airflow into the engine and maximizing supercharger efficiency.
Other performance modifications include an Ohlin 2 way crossover suspension system, non-standard Yokohama R-Spec tyres and stiffened engine mounts. The CR has also had braking performance boosted, with AP Racing 308mm rotors and 4 piston callipers.
Cosmetically the car is a beautiful piece of machinery. The factory matte black finish has been highlighted with carbon fibre elements, such as gear console, side scoops, front canards, side sill covers and rear wing*. The look has been topped with aftermarket wheels to complement the aggressive design of the classic Lotus bodywork. For safety, the car has a 6 Point HANS Compatible Harness which is a mandatory feature for most track or club events in Australia.
*Stock rear wing can be provided.
