The very rare Exige Sprint here at Hofmann’s is a 2008 “08 plate” car finished in the stunning Persian Blue, over Gold and Aspen White. Having been cared for by 4 owners the car benefits from a full service history, Uprated Nitron Suspension, and the all-important gearbox rebuild with gearbox oil cooler and uprated Exedy clutch.
Even more unique is factory Cup upgrade, which includes power upgrade to 260bhp, Roll Cage and Cup Wheels. This upgrade has a plaque in the car showing car 001!
Lotus Cars has taken one of most recognisable and iconic colour schemes from the early 1970s and reintroduced it for the first time with the limited edition Exige Sprint. Just 40 cars went on sale in a duo-tone paint scheme of Aspen White on the lower portion of the body and a choice of Solar Yellow or Persian Blue on the upper portion of the body. The two colours are separated by a gold stripe bearing the name Exige Sprint.
Celebrating the start of Lotus production at Hethel in 1967 the 40 cars were built with an individually numbered chassis year plate covering 1967 to 2007, expect for 1982, the year of Colin Chapman’s untimely tragic death. Our Exige Sprint is 1987.
The Sprint is more than just a colour scheme, it includes ultra lightweight forged alloy wheels, air conditioning, Sport Pack, Touring Pack and the Performance pack giving a phenomenal acceleration of 60mph in 4.0 seconds, 100mph in 9.9 seconds and continues to pull all the way to 146mph.
As with all our cars here at Hofmann’s the car has undergone a comprehensive pre sales inspection by one of our Lotus trained technicians.
All vehicles supplied through Hofmann’s have funding options available, are all warranted and part exchanges welcome.
