A 3.5-liter V6 that we know from the Evora S, instead of a 1.8 liter four cylinders. Lotus has the general auto memo about downsizing as not received. I believe.
So this is where Lotus was referring to the somewhat unconventional teaser last week. A reference to the additional power of the Lotus, of course.

In 2010, the Exige S to retire. It had a 225 hp and 181 Nm 1.8 VVT-i board and weighed 935 kg. Now the S back with a fucking engine almost twice as much content. BAM!

This trim provides the Exige 350 hp and 400 Nm, 0-100 in an approximately 3.8 seconds, 0-160 in 7.9 seconds and top speed to around 274 km / h (170 mph) .

Of course, this ale a price: weight increased from 935 kg to 1,080 kg. Furthermore, had a piece of the back extended to make room for the increased power, which naturally placed at the only place that belongs to a sports car in the middle.
Furthermore,, you have a little content with your right foot, unless you frequently keep fuel because the fuel does not measure more than 40 liters.
