Cup 260 car NVH pack
Up close you can see the many new carbonfibre parts - front splitter, dash top, roof, side scoops, engine cover and rear wing - but to distinguish it from previous Exiges the new 260 Cup also has a set of (deletable) body stripes. To me it looks like tribal tattooing - I half expected to find a swirly tramp-stamp between the tail lights.
Once mounted on fixed runners, the Cup 260's carbonfibre-shelled seats are FIA-approved for competition, and while there's not much of them, they prove brilliantly supportive and comfortable. And yet, even knowing that this Exige is virtually a racer, there isn't the rawness you expect. Twist the key, thumb the yellow starter button and, even with its skinny flywheel, the supercharged Toyota engine at your back sounds plain, tinkly, discreet.
Even when you get moving there's little initially to suggest you're at the helm of a racer. This Exige shares characteristics with every other Lotus based on the aluminium Elise chassis, namely untaxing steering, a light, snappy gearshift, air-light pedal resistance and the feeling that there's not much mass pinning the front tyres to the road. In short, it takes little muscle to pilot the Exige. But it soon becomes starkly obvious that lurking just beneath this lightness of touch are some jagged, uncompromising hard-points.
