How about getting behind the wheel of this for your weekend drive?  It’s the Lotus Exige Cup 430 Type 25.   430 horsepower comes out of the 3.5-litre supercharged and charge cooled V6. A six-speed manual transmission is standard.  The inspiration for this two seater comes from the Lotus Type 25 racing car from the 1960’s. Built for the road, this collector’s item naturally has a track focus.  They only plan to make 25.
