Aerodynamics - Exige V6

From TechWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Lotus Exige V6 comes in two variants the Roadster and the Sport. The roadster does not have any of the aerodynamic add on's such as the front splitter or rear wing in which are standard on the Exige Sport V6S. Its important to note that OEM mountings are present on the front clam of the roadster for retro fitting of a front splitter, however new holes and mountings would be required on the rear hatch to fit a rear wing.

This page aims to share aerodynamic performance parts available from the aftermarket for the Exige S3 V6 which includes the 350 Sport as well as the 380 Sport and Cup.

Front Splitters

ALIAS23 - Track & Street Splitter

ALIAS23 have produced two splitter designs for the Exige V6. Both take inspiration from the Lotus Motorsport CupR which is proven to increase front end downforce. The TRACK splitter (as shown in the image) has an over hang of 80mm, the STREET option in comparison has an overhand of 40mm which matches that of the Lotus OEM sport splitter. Both variants are finished in a satin black to match OEM and come with full fitting kit and instructions. It is important to note the TRACK splitter does require additional reinforcement of the front clam to cope with the added downforce - Further information on this can be found HERE

Rear Wings

ALIAS23 - Exige 380 Cup Carbon Rear Wing

The Exige Cup 380 Cup is arguably the best visual variant of the Exige S3 range Lotus ever built. Designed with many aerodynamics enhancements, the most obvious of which being the carbon tailgate-mounted rear wing.

It contributed to the car achieving a downforce of 200kg at max velocity of 281 kph, which is a significant number considering that the car itself weighs about 1,050 kgs. The ALIAS23 tailgate-mounted wing is inspired by the Exige Cup 380, and will bolt on to any Exige V6, using the mounting holes used for the OEM wing. Installation is therefore very simple and no additional modification is required. True plug and play!

The wing kit features billet aluminium uprights and bases, a gloss carbon blade with carbon end-panels and is supplied with all fasteners needed for installation.

Komo-Tec Carbon Fibre Rear Wing

Developed in the wind tunnel, the KT-Track rear wing offers an optimal profile to generate a very good ratio of downforce and air resistance. The 1.350 mm wide, curved wing ensures a balanced aerodynamic distribution, especially in combination with the motorsports front splitter. At an angle of 12° of the tail wing, the highest aerodynamic system efficiency is achieved.

The wing is fixed to the tailgate by specially built Komo-Tec wing supports (in black). Fixings supplied as standard.
