Exige GT S Spec ed

Lotus is marking its victory in the British GT3 Championship with this special-edition Exige.

Called the Lotus Exige S British GT Special Edition, it'll sprint from 0-60mph in less time than it takes you to read out its name.

The GT Special Edition costs £39,995 and comes with a natty quad-stripe paint scheme, numbered 'British GT' badges, Lotus Sport Cadena decals and forged alloy wheels. In the cabin you get unique sports seats, door trims and Lotus Sport floor mats.

The 218bhp engine brings the car to 60mph in 4.1sec, but you can go faster if you opt for the £4995 GT Pack. Apart from making the car's name unbelievably long (Lotus Exige S British GT Special Edition GT Pack, anyone?), it boosts performance.

Power goes up to 243bhp and the 0-60mph time goes down to under four seconds. The brakes are also upgraded, with larger front discs and different pads.
