The Lotus Exige Cup 430 is the latest example of the British automaker’s high-performance design. The 430 variant features a powerful engine coupled with a new supercharger that produces around 13 percent more power than its predecessor, the Exige Cup 380.

Along with a new powertrain, the two-seater Exige Cup 430 sports a body redesign with improved aerodynamics. Performance-wise, the new whip can reach a top speed of 180 mph, aided by the a dry weight reduction down to just over a ton.

The engine produces 430 hp and 325 lb ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, allowing this taught racer to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds. Add top-notch aerodynamics, including a lightweight carbon fiber ducts, and the 430 has reduced drag in comparison to its forebears. This one is sure to throw you back in your seat.

And priced at $130,840 – when compared to other sports cars within this performance bracket – it’s a relative bargain.
