(from Sector111 Press
Release) Sector111 Lotus Exige
The Sector111 Exige takes Colin Chapman’s design philosophy of “Performance through lightweight” to the next level. Sector111 has turned its 2006 Lotus Exige into a hardcore, track-ready supercar capable of world-class performance.
This car, which was featured on SPEED channel’s Supercars Exposed, employs many parts seen on some of the world’s best race cars as well as some of Sector111’s own “tasty bits.” Every part on the Sector111 Exige is focused and purpose built to the highest standards.
The Sector111 Exige in more detail:
The Sector111 Exige
started life with a normally aspirated 1.8 liter Toyota 2ZZ inline-4
engine producing 189 hp. The addition of Sector111’s Katana roots
hybrid type supercharger increased the high-revving engine’s power
to 240+ hp.
Improving engine flow is a Larini Sport 8 inch exhaust system. This hand-crafted, lightweight system saves almost 10 pounds over the stock exhaust while giving the car a great sophisticated, tuned sound.
Occupant safety is a major highlight of the Sector111 Exige. A ReVerie XC carbon fiber seat and Schroth Profi II 6-point racing harness keep occupants firmly and safely in place with the help of Sector111’s sys.6.pack (a 6-point-harness ready device that also reinforces both seats).
The Sector111 Exige has a comprehensive aerodynamic package that keeps the lightened supercar planted on the road or track. A ReVerie carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber undertray and 5-element carbon fiber rear diffuser make the Sector111 Exige a truly flat-bottom car. The aero kit also includes ReVerie carbon fiber side skirts and carbon fiber arch louvers. A ReVerie 1650mm rear wing spans the entire width of the car and keeps the rear wheels glued to the ground.
A redesigned carbon fiber roof with integrated air scoop, carbon fiber rear hatch, carbon fiber access panels and ReVerie carbon fiber side scoops all do their part in keeping the Sector111 Exige’s overall weight down to a trim 1954 lbs wet.
Wheels and Tires
This Exige runs on Sector111 designed stellaCORSE lightweight forged wheels (16x7 fronts, 17x8 rears). Wrapped around the beautiful stellaCORSE wheels are Toyo Proxes R888 high-performance R-compound tires.
The Sector111 Exige’s combination of a lightweight body and huge brakes make it one of the most powerful braking cars on the road. The car’s AP Racing Big Brake Kit issues serious stopping force from its race engineered 2-piece rotors.
A Nitron Exige GT3 triple adjustable suspension system offers great on and off track performance. Low & high speed compression and rebound levels can be adjusted to insure the Sector111 Exige’s ride is uncompromised on the track or in the canyons.
