To honor the armed forces who have served the UK, Lotus has unveiled a special edition of its current Exige model.

The new special model is based on the Cup 430 variant and was named Poppy Car. The model was developed with some help from the Mission Motorsport organization and has a livery made of 635 individually cut and placed reflective poppies.

As you may have read, Lotus Exige production ended recently to make room for the new Emira, the model that replaces both Exige and Evora.

Under the hood of the Exige Cup 430 is a supercharge 3.5 liter V6 engine rated at 430 horsepower and 439 Nm peak of torque. It is matted to a six speed manual transmission and RWD.
