Click the image above for a couple of wallpaper-worthy shots of the Club Racer Exige S.

The term "Club Racer" is usually appended to some of the most hard-core track-day weapons on the market. In the case of the Lotus Exige S Club Racer, it boils down to an exclusive paint scheme and some added interior bits.

The sky blue and "Phantom Black" exterior ties in nicely with the sports pack black wheels, and harkens back to the heyday of Mr. Chapman's racing endeavors in the '60s. Inside, the Club Racer gets a combination of black leather and carbon fiber "effect" coverings, along with an overhead shot of the Hethel circuit embroidered into the headrests.

Only 25 limited editor "Racers" will be sold, with no word on how many will make it Stateside. With a price of £39,950 for what's essentially a Sport, Touring and Super Touring package equipped Exige S with a Sports Exhaust and air-con, we could think of better ways of building up our own dream Exige.

Lotus' press release in full is posted after the jump.

      All of the flares, wings, inlets, vents and splitters are functional.

      yea, any color, any day......and one day actually attainable for me.

      but i agree, i'd rather buy a Exige S and add my own goodies.

      I drove an Exige recently and I couldn't see how they could make a 'club racer' version. They are stripped like a normal club racer already. The only thing I could imagine is taking out the passenger seat and removing the Blaupunkt stereo.

      Please can pan the Elise/Exige if they want, but they are crazy fun to drive.
