Hey Jack
I have a 2013 Exige S V6 Cup, not a R that I track. Looking to put a rear wing like yours and a front splitter.
Does your wing mount to the clam or rear hatch. If the clam does the hatch clear the wing so it will still open?
Do you have any idea where to buy one? You have a killer looking car.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Likely Jack will point you to VSA Motorsports. I sure wish they were still local to me. Damn you Jack!

Lee, thanks for the kind words.

The rear wing on the R attaches directly to the sub-frame and the rear louvered engine cover is carbon fibre and not hinged.... no rear glass, no trunk. See last photo below for stock CupR wing upright attachment points.

There are hatch and clam wing options available from several companies located in Europe. I am not aware of any US vendors stocking rear wings, but they might be able to source one for you. Some of the possible sources for clam (or other mount-option) wings are:

1) Reverie (they will have splitters/diffusors, etc) .... https://www.reverie.ltd.uk/V6ExigeRearWings.php

2) Komo-Tec (they also have other aero items) ..... https://www.komo-tec.com/en/lotus-ex...-or-flat?c=577

3) Elise-Shop (these guys are a source for several Exige S3 aero items) ..... https://www.elise-shop.com/380-sport...-p-503315.html

4) Hanger 111 ..... Exige S V6 Reverie Carbon Fibre High Downforce Rear Wing Clam Mount | Hangar 111

Also, you can check out this post on an England-based forum where many more V6 Exige owners reside ... specifically dealing with upgrading to a BIG WING ..... https://www.thelotusforums.com/forum...g-v6-register/

Hope this helps...good luck.

Thanks Jack, for the info and taking time to list all the links to company websites.


Looks like you have been fine tuning your car the last 3 or 4 years and have it
really dialed in. Wish I could of found a Cup R but all I could find was this cup
with a V6. At least it was taking care of and only 4,000 miles but no mods. I
have only tracked it 5 days and spunout 3 times. Worked on suspension and
brakes last week so hope It's better this weekend, going back to Sebring. Anyways.
thanks for taking time to reply and all your help.
