Lotus has released the technical details and the price of a new model Exige S Roadster, the fastest convertibles in its history, which arrives on the market this summer.
Modeled after the coupe, a topless version of the sporty two-seater also runs a 3.5 liter V6 engine, improved with Harrop HTV 1320 supercharger, and connected with the six-speed speed transmission transfered to the rear-wheel drive. 350Hp engine produces at 7000 r / min and maximum torque of 400 Nm at 4500 r / min, and the EU combined cycle (NEDC) consumes 10.1 l/60mph, with CO2 emissions of 236 grams per mile, as the coupe.
The new Exige S Roadster weighs 1166 kilograms (10 pounds less than the coupe), and up to 60mph comes in just 4 seconds and a top speed is electronically limited on 145mph. It is worth mentioning that the car comes in standard equipped with Pirelli P-Zero tires Corsa dimension 205/45 R17 front and 265/35 R18 rear, as well as daytime running lights presented in LED technology.
Lotus Exige S Roadster on the British market should be set aside £52,900 (including tax) or €55,378 (excluding VAT) in the rest of Europe or $80,000 in United States.
This unique vessel gives you two options, you can either use the detachable engine to jet across the water or add the sail to making it into a sail boat. Approximately you need between switching around ten minutes. Two seater, the wFoil 18 has a hull made from mountain spruce wood strips that were mounted onto the aircraft plywood frame. The hydro foils are made from carbon composites that ensure top speeds by keeping drag consistent throughout the entire speed range.
Another great perk of the wFoil 18 is that it’s pretty eco-friendly. By using hydro foils the vessel is able to cut down on fuel consumption, testing at around two gallons of fuel an hour to keep the boat moving at around 46 mph.
Price isn’t yet released but wFoil plans to produce 20 boats per year.
