LOTUS AUSTRALIA HAS announced local availability for the Lotus Exige Scura - Italian for 'dark' - limited to just 35 examples worldwide.

Priced at $139,990 (plus on-roads) in Australia, only a very small number of Scura edition Exiges will be available.

Lotus Exige Scura

Finished in a matt black and carbon fibre theme with 'Phantom Black' striping, the Scura made its debut at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show.

A carbon fibre front splitter, oil cooler inlet vanes, side air-scoops and rear spoiler make for both a weight saving and an aesthetic enhancement.

Carbon fibre has been used extensively throughout the Scura's interior, including the seats and centre console. The handbrake and gear knob have been anodised, giving the components an anthracite finish.

Weighing in at 925kg and powered by the same 1.8 litre supercharged inline-four of the Exige Cup 260, the Exige Scura develops 191kW, dispatching the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.1 seconds.

As with the Cup 260, the Scura's fuel economy is listed as 8.5 l/100km and CO2 emissions are rated at 199g/km.

Standard equipment includes launch control, Ohlins two-way adjustable dampers and Lotus Variable Slip Traction Control, which allows owners to specify their own settings to suit driving style and road conditions.

"There are very few cars in the world that turn in the performance of the Exige Scura without the penalty of very high fuel consumption and emissions," Roger Becker, Vehicle Engineering Director said.

"As with all Lotus sportscars we offer the best of both worlds - a zero to 100 km/h time of just over four seconds and a CO2 figure of 199g/km; all this is down to light weight and a strict adherence to Lotus' core brand values."

The Lotus Exige Scura is available for order now.
