07 Exige S vs. Club Racer

there is also NO info on the Lotus Website...

can someone shed some light into what is different from the 07 Exige S from the ClubRacer??? interior/exterior/engine/suspension/weight etc?

Love the color but I'd spend all my time trying to sneak "DUKESUX" past the DMV.

Go heels.

What is lightweight Club Racer spec? It seems a mystery to all I have spoken with. Is it just he absence of the touring package?

hey we know more than just Lotus here

I am debating the club racer vs 240 myself...Personally I dont mind the baby blue when combined with the black trim...It does lack some other features of the 240 though besides the 20 hp (variable TC, new roof)...

The Club Racer is really just a 'left over' 07 "S" and is really very simmilar. They painted it blue, slapped on the S240 brakes, installed the '08 instrument cluster, added the driving lights in front, and changed the interior a bit. That's about it.

I think only one more sentence would be needed for the difference with the 240 Exige. Lotus didn't make any dramatic changes, period.
