Make Lotus
Model S260 Sport
Body Coupe
Trim Touring/ Track
Engine 1.8L inline 4 cylinder

Color Phantom Black over Black Leather/ Red Alcantara and Carbon Fiber Trim
Mileage 2,XXX
VIN # SCCLHHAC7BHA11421
Price $70,100 or best offer

The standard Lotus Exige already represents to many the ultimate sports car both on and off the track. That said, the S 260 Sport raises the bar even higher and represents the pinnacle of the Lotus experience.

The S 260 Sport (not to be confused with the S260) offers several enhancements over the standard Exige including extensive carbon fiber bodywork (roof, wing, front splitter, mechanical access panels, etc.), carbon fiber trim (dash, sills, seats, etc), limited slip, touring package (cup holder, interior stowage net, full carpet, ipod connectivity, leather center console, stowage space divider, additional acoustic insulation) and track package (Lotus Motorsport tuned Ohlin Dampers, height adjustable springs) all as standard. The engine is modified as well and sees the HP boosted to 257 with 174 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 times for the car are estimated at less than 4 seconds by Lotus yet still returning 20MPG city and 26MPG highway.

This well pampered example has been equipped with the only factory option (starshield paint protection) and shows only 2,XXX miles on the odometer. Often transported by trailer, the car has been to several SCCA Solo events including nationals. It comes equipped with the following aftermarket accessories:

Jack Helper
6 month old, professionally installed Schroth Harnesses
Professionally installed wheel studs

One of only 3 S260 Sports imported for 2011, this vehicle is an instant classic. Original MSRP was nearly $80,000 before the added enhancements. It is being offered for $70,100 or best offer.

What is a "jack helper?"
I'm guessing it's Jim Clayton's jacker helper which allows you to lift both rear tires off the ground at the same time using one center located floor jack. Great thing to have.

Those seats look awesome!
They can be ordered for any car but were exclusive to the S260. The Sports are very, very rare and include a ton of carbon fiber. The issue is that a lot of dealers, to give them the benefit of the doubt, don't understand that all 260s are not Sports and market their cars incorrectly. Much worse is the possibility that they are trying to promote their cars as something they are not. The CF costs are extreme if you tried to recreate this from the factory. Well in excess of the premium over a standard car.
