In the history of Formula 1 racing, Lotus has been crowned as a champion 81 times. Paying homage to its rich F1 heritage, Lotus will be building 81 Exige LF1 Edition sports cars. The design team blended various elements from the past Lotus livery, including black and gold colors from '70s to '80s, and their current machines that are adorned by fiery red spot colors. Internals are based on the 3.5-liter supercharged V6 engine from Exige S, which is rated to produce 345 horsepower with a top speed of 170 mph. Furthermore, this limited edition vehicle is equipped with four-mode Dynamic Performance Management system to enhance its launches.
