Stealthier

At this week's Tokyo Motor Show, Lotus will be whipping the covers off its latest Exige coupe that's just graduated from ninja school.

Dubbed Stealth in Japan and Scura in the rest of the world, this limited edition Exige is clad in matte black paint finished off with three glossy "phantom black" stripes. Scura, incidentally, means dark in Italian.

Quicker

Not just created to look menacing, the Scura/Stealth comes with an upgraded engine. The 1.8-litre supercharged engine now delivers 191kW of power and 215Nm of torque.

Manual only

Naturally this track focused car only comes with a six-speed manual gearbox. Time everything correctly and you'll be able to blast off from standstill to 100km/h in just 4.1 seconds.

Help!

There are a few bits of driver assistance technology on-board, such as the launch control mechanism, track tunable traction control and adjustable Ohlins dampers.

Hold on

They mightn't be the last word in comfort, but the Scura's lightweight carbon fibre racing seats should keep you firmly in place as you hoon around the track.
