Castle Lotus are delighted to bring this beautiful and very rare Lotus Exige S3 CUP 430 to the market. The CUP 430 is the flagship Exige model being the fastest, lightest and most track focussed variant built. At its time of release the CUP 430 was Lotus’ fastest ever road car only topped now by the Evija.
Producing 430BHP from the 3.5-litre V6 engine the 430 will sprint from 0-60 in just 3.2 seconds and go on to a top speed of 180MPH! Weighing just 1,100KG the CUP 430 as you would expect is light on its feet and nimble thanks to the huge number of standard carbon fibre body panels and weight saving extras!
These weight saving extras as standard include
Carbon fibre front splitter
Carbon fibre front access panel
Carbon fibre hardtop roof
Carbon fibre rear tailgate
Carbon fibre rear spoiler
Carbon fibre rear diffuser
Carbon fibre backed bucket seats
On top of this extensive list this particular Exige is fitted with carbon fibre mirror pods, dash binnacle and sill covers!
This Exige 430 CUP most noticeably is finished in the incredibly rare Liquid Yellow three stage pearlescent paint work. Rarely seen and incredibly expensive this paintwork looks absolutely fantastic and finishes of the ultimate Exige perfectly. The paint is completely unmarked and presents in immaculate condition. The front end of the vehicle has full paint protection film which has avoided any stone chips marking the bodywork. Liquid yellow painted pin stripes were also optioned on this vehicle. These are applied under the lacquer and are not stick on decals.
The interior of the car is finished in alcantara with a yellow contrast stitch. A liquid yellow interior colour pack has also been fitted to this car adding a further flash of the incredible pearlescent shade to brighten up the interior. Most noticeably a factory fitted harness ‘Y’ bar has been installed to this Exige for added safety and makes the addition of harnesses very simple. The ‘Y’ bar is also finished in liquid yellow and is a work of art in itself.
The CUP 430 is factory fitted with fully adjustable Nitron suspension with remote reservoirs. These provide a smooth but firm ride but avoid the ‘crashing’ of lower quality track specification systems. The 430 is also factory fitted with a titanium exhaust system to save yet further weight.
This car has full Lotus main dealer service history from new and a mere 5,100 miles on the clock from new. There is no sign of prior track use, no indication of excessive suspension and brake wear or stone rash.
This is an incredibly well optioned Exige and very rare finished in the three-stage pearlescent paint. If you are looking for the ultimate Exige look no further, this car comes freshly serviced and with a fresh MOT along with a 12-month warranty. Contact our sales team for further help and information.
