|Lotus Exige GT3 race car
The Lotus Sport Exige GT3, developed by Lotus Sport is a direct motorsport derivative of the highly successful Lotus Exige S road car.
The Lotus designed and engineered racecar uses the latest motorsport techniques and procedures to produce a lightweight yet strong carbon-fibre bodywork structure around the standard road-going Lotus Exige Aluminium extruded and bonded chassis.
Lotus Sport designed a fully adjustable suspension system with double wishbones all round. Power is provided by race tuned version of the Exige S road car engine linked to sequential six-speed gearbox.
