The Lotus Exige Cup 430 is, according to Lotus, the "most extreme" Exige ever.

Its 3.5-liter V6 features a new supercharger and intercooler, pushing its output up to 430 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.

It comes mated to a six-speed manual and rear-wheel drive.

Thanks to a low curb weight of 2,328 pounds, it'll hit 60 mph in a scant 3.2 seconds.

It packs 55 more horsepower than the Exige Cup 380 model that used to be the most extreme Exige ever.

Extensive use of aerodynamic add-ons produces about 485 pounds of downforce.

Four-piston AP Racing brake calipers help bring everything to a stop, and quickly.
