Lotus Limited Edition ‘Exige LF1’

Exige LF1

This summer 81 Lotus Exige S cars will receive a Lotus F1® Team inspired livery and interior trim
to commemorate the number of grand prix victories held by the Lotus marque*,
Delivering race-car thrills on the road and track, the critically acclaimed supercharged 3.5l V6
Exige S is well known for its focussed dynamic performance, now, with a striking bespoke black
and gold paint scheme with red accents and gold 17” front and 18” rear cast alloy wheels, the
Exige LF1 leaves no doubt as to its heritage or indeed to its intention!
The Exige LF1 is a car that begs to be driven; inside the meticulously designed black and gold
interior ensures that the driver and passenger environment evokes the spirit of competition, the
sporty details a continuity of the Formula 1® inspired scheme.
Exclusivity and performance are at the heart of the Exige LF1; each car will be individually
numbered with its own limited edition carbon fibre build plate and loaded rich with extras such as
the Exige Race Pack with Dynamic Performance Management system, two-piece high
performance brake discs and high-performance Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo tyres. For those drivers
wanting to optimise their Exige LF1 optional Convenience Pack, heated seats and rear parking
sensors are available.
Designed with Lotus fans firmly in mind, the Lotus Exige LF1 brings to life the iconic black and
gold livery of the 1970s and 1980s. A blend of heritage and modernity, the Exige LF1 pays
homage to the great Lotus Formula 1 cars of yesteryear yet incorporates the pallet and
sophistication of today’s E22. Each of the 81 limited edition cars will sequentially celebrate a
specific Grand Prix from car #1 commemorating Lotus’ first GP victory at Monaco in 1960 to car
#81 marking Kimi Raikkonen’s win at Australia in 2013.
Not only will Exige LF1 owners be guaranteed an exclusive driving experience, but they will also
automatically become Exige LF1 Members. Exige LF1 Membership offers a real Lotus F1
experience including a behind the scenes tour of the Lotus Cars and Lotus F1® Team factories
and a range of Lotus F1® Team gifts and memorabilia.
Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus CEO explained, “Lotus’ DNA is borne of the Formula one® arena and
with 65 years of motorsport racing experience, 40 of those in F1® it’s fitting we celebrate our
sporting origins and our race successes with the new Exige LF1. 81 limited edition cars, each
one an acknowledgement to each of Lotus’ 81 Grand Prix wins, this car is intended for the truest
of Lotus’ racing fans.”
The Exige LF1 makes its public debut during the second week of June, showcased in its righthand
drive guise at the Canary Wharf Motorexpo in London from Monday 9 June until Sunday 15
