On this video I use CMS Laptimer, a free iPhone app, in my opinion the best free one.
But now I use Harry's Lap Timer Pro. It has a cost, but much more powerful.
One of the early sessions in Montmélo, on the 31st October 2011.
We were still discovering the track, hence pretty slow laps on this video.
Having fun with a mighty Nissan GTR of unknown specs I have to say.
But boy, it goes... The acceleration is massive. My healthy Duratec Exige S1, cannot fight in the straight. I topped 235 (around) on the speedo, where the GTR was over 260 !!!
The car was really impressive and could turn as well, surprisingly well. I was able to get back though.
Real trouble on that day for the GTR was heat, with tires and gearbox heating up too fast, from what I understood.
My Exige stood up pretty well, so I am happy.
Circuit de Catalunya is the fastest track I ever drove on, even a little faster in the straight than SPA !
The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
World's Fastest Lotus - Redux
Spotted on Mulholland Ronin's Exige from the "Worlds Fastest Lotus" episode
on the Drive channel . Rebuilt after a crash, the car is even lighter and
faster than before. Look for it in
upcoming episodes of Tuned and Jay Leno's Garage. Here is the car before
being rebuilt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmscSzFurwg
2013 Lotus Exige V6 Cup vs 2012 Nissan GTR - Silverstone GP.
On a dry track this time. An interesting comparison between two very
different approaches to achieve a similar result.
Don't look for continuity, there isn't any! It was all taken from the same
camera so at different times of the day. I was driving the GTR, plus the
Exige for all the in-car shots.
As I was driving the GTR I know that it was flat-out in race mode down the
Hangar Straight so the difference between the two cars in a straight line
is what you can see in the video - there's not much in it. Not bad going
for a 345bhp car to match a 550bhp monster!
Best comparison for straight line speed is at 3 minutes down the Hangar
straight. You're seeing roughly 60 mph through to a little over 130 mph.
The GTR is standard.
Lotus Exige S road and track review
The Lotus Exige S is designed for one thing and one thing only: Putting a

video road test review.

For most people, the standard Lotus Exige V6 would surely represent the
ultimate kind of sports car. It weighs little more than a box of feathers,
its interior is quite extraordinarily uncluttered by unnecessary luxuries,
and its supercharged Toyota V6 engine provides it with enough grunt --
345bhp -- to embarrass all but the most ambitious supercar drivers. Sutters
travels to Lotus' test track in Hethel to drive the Exige V6 Cup S road car
and the Exige V6 Cup R racer.

Lotus Exige S: The Ultimate Lotus? - XCAR
A return to Hethel is always a pleasure. Lotus' home always gives me a
little bit of a tingle in my 'yes' place and the chance to muck about in
the new Exige S amplified it to near pirapismic heights.
Y'see, when Lotus calls a car 'Exige' you know they're not mucking about.
Similarly, you know that you're likely to leave with a big grin on your
face. Of course, Lotus' current nomenclature means that adding 'S' to a
name means it's got a Supercharger too.
Which is nice.
The current car is the third Exige -- the first was based on the S1, while
the second was based on the rather delicious S2 and came with all manner of
engine tweaks. Anyway, compared to the new one they're... child's play.
Y'see, this one gets the 3.5-litre supercharged V6 straight out of the
Evora S. The result? 345bhp, 295lb ft, a top speed of 170mph and 0-62mph in
less 4.0seconds. All in a car smaller than R2D2.
On top of its silly powerplant, there's also the fact that it was developed
by Lotus -- that means it's one of the finest handling cars in the world.
It'll slide when provoked, but otherwise it'll grip like nothing else.
As well as having silly power and handling finesse, the Exige S boasts a
first -- traction control. The Dynamic Performance System, as Lotus calls
it, gives the Exige an electronic brain that not only stops you from
falling off the road, but can give you a faster lap time as well. Y'see, 'tour' mode
is the 'don't crash mode', 'sport' is best called 'hero mode' as it lets
the Exige's arse step out of line from time to time and 'race' mode -- it's
really clever. Race mode will learn the track you're on and will give you
access to its fearsome power when it thinks you're capable of using it --
no matter how hard your foot is pressed on the go pedal. A Lotus
development driver told me that in a race around Hethel a car ser to 'race'
will be quicker than one with no traction on at all... So not only is this
the most powerful Exige, it's also the cleverest.
The Exige is a car that fills its driver with confidence, it fires you from
A-B with such ferocity that you can't help but grin like a loon. To go
alongside the power, its noise is pretty incredible. You won't forget
there's a 3.5-litre V6 mere inches behind your ear in a hurry.
On track the Exige S will humble things twice its price and cars with
horses for logos. Driving it in the real world may be a struggle, but
you'll do it because as an experience it's simply brilliant.
Engine: 3.5-litre supercharged V6
Torque: 295lb ft
Top speed: 170mph

My Lotus Exige S 260RGB with Larini Exhaust Sound!
This is my brand new Lotus Exige S 260RGB Limited Final Edition N°089 of
200 worldwide. The car is arrived at home friday morning and of course, I
immediately went to make some videos!
This particular one is powered by a 1.8 liter supercharged inline 4 that
produces 260hp and thanks to its low weight (887kg) is able to go from 0 to
100km/h in 4 seconds!
It's also fitted with a cat-less Larini ClubSport Exhaust system that does produce an awesome
