Lotus has taken the wraps off the Exige Sport 350, essentially a much lighter Exige S (by 112 pounds) weighing in at 2,480 lbs. The feat is achieved through lighter battery and engine mounts, less sound deadening, HVAC piping, a new louvered tailgate panel and a stripped down central console. While you're scoping the interior, check out the tartan plaid detailing. As for what's underneath the hood, there's a supercharged V6 sending 345 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. The 350 Sport consequently accelerates to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds before topping out at 170 mph. Look for the car to go on sale in February, available from $80,900 (€74,000) in Germany.
