It seems that Lotus definitely want to reach the bottom of the can with its Elise and Exige models. Lotus will unveil another special edition of the Exige, called the Scura, at the Tokyo Motorshow starting this weekend. The name has something to do with the appearance of the car; Scura means Italian for ‘dark’.
The matt black colour is accompanied by a central stripe-combination called ‘Phantom Black’. The Scura’s sprint from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) is just 4.1 seconds! Made possible by the 260bhp strong engine and the abundant usage of carbon fiber. Lotus added carbon fiber parts in the new front splitter and diffuser. You will also get carbon fiber seats, center console, hand brake and gear lever. Prices start at € 61,820 ($ 92,223 – £ 56,222).
