£ 49,995


Launched and produced in 2005, the Lotus Exige 240R was the first and most special of the limited edition Series 2 Exiges, and the first with a supercharged engine – one of the rarest, most accomplished and fastest Lotuses. Limited to just 50 examples and instantly sold out, completed Exiges were taken from the production line and factory converted by Lotus Sport to produce the 240R. Performance figures were incredible for the time with the 243hp supercharged Toyota engine providing a 261hp/ton power to weight ratio and 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds, and 0-100mph in 9.9 seconds. Top speed was 155 mph and up to 113kg of downforce was provided by aerodynamic aids. Reviews of the 240R were extremely positive – a couple here: Exige 240Rs came in either metallic black or yellow and were designed with fast-road and track driving in mind. The standard factory specification included: Supercharged and intercooled 1.8 litre Toyota engine with variable valve timing and lift 243hp 6 speed gearbox Twin oil coolers Accusump oil reservoir system for high-speed track use Adjustable Ohlins dampers all round Adjustable front anti-roll bar Stiffer upgraded suspension springs Upgraded braking system (AP Racing and Brembo) Sports exhaust Lightweight alloy wheels Yokohama AO48 tyres 4 point racing harnesses and racing seats Full leather interior in black with yellow inserts Air conditioning Electric windows Radio/CD player Central locking with alarm and immobiliser Unique numbered build plate Full spec details: My car is build number 007 from 050 – built and registered in 2005 as a right- hand drive UK car. The car has been part of a large Lotus private collection and has been dry stored in a dehumidified environment and driven only in the dry - Summer use only. It has never been tracked – road use only – and has covered only 6,200 miles (2,000 miles in the past year). It is in immaculate condition. It is also completely unmodified in any way. Full recent engineers inspection report available. MOT to July 2019. My Exige has been a “garage queen” and is quite probably the lowest mileage and best condition 240R in existence. I believe only 12 240Rs remain in the UK with the rest elsewhere in Europe, Japan and the US. Most have been tracked and many modified. My Exige would suit someone seeking an example of this special car with ultra-low mileage and in as-new condition – either for road or track use or to be part of a collection. International enquiries welcome. GBP £49,995.
