Genuine 2001 Exige, in Titanium.

Forged K20 engine, uprated gearbox, full suspension refresh. Circa 550bhp high boost, 400bhp low boost. Motorsports seats.

Subject to extensive performance modifications by Lotus specialist Maidstone Sport Cars.

The chassis is on 58k miles, engine is around 2k miles since full rebuild. Specs on all the components below, to the best of my recollection, all paperwork available:

Performance is eye watering, and a fortune has been spent on it over the years. Selling due to lack of use/family commitments. Currently SORN, but will be sold with fresh MoT and service.
