THE RETURN OF LOTUS TO RALLY
LOTUS EXIGE R-GT
30 years after World Rally Championship victory in the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus
The Exige R-GT will participate in the newly formed FIA GT category of the FIA Rally Championship on asphalt in Monte Carlo, Tour de Corse and San Remo.
The Lotus Exige R-GT race car has been developed alongside the road car allowing the technical team to create the perfect race machine,high performance but without losing the sense of fun to drive and ease of use. Developing the race version of the Exige in parallel with the road car has allowed the Lotus technicians to make rapid advances in terms of safety and reliability.
Powered by the same V6 3.5 litre engine as the new road Exige S, significant changes have been made to the gearbox and the restrictors on the engine in order to control the power. Lotus will initially partner with several customer teams following the tried and tested method in which Lotus entered IndyCar and returned to Le Mans.
