Lotus return to rally with the Lotus Exige R-GT

I cannot wait to see Lotus entering this into the 2012 FIA WRC GT class, and although Lotus still hasn’t officially begun its season with this rally version of the Exige, they claim it will enter in competition for this 2012 season at some point.

Claudio Berro, Group Lotus’ Director of Motorsport, said: “When you consider that we’ve only began working on this car in July, I think what we’ve achieved in that time has been incredible. For me the Exige S makes the perfect GT rally car, it has an awesome 3.5-litre, supercharged engine, and we’ve managed to balance the weight perfectly to meet the minimum weight regulations.

365hp, to be exact!  Wicked.

    how about the fact that the Evora GT3 is joining ALMS this season (ex-Sebring)?

    i saw an Evora running at Petit Le Mans this year in the GT class—-it sounded AMAZING. Later on when i was in the pit area, i saw a glorious Cosworth engine underneath the open bonnet! Lotus will also be at Le Mans this year in the LMP2 category! https://iedei.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/lotus-to-enter-2012-le-mans-lmp2/
