For P 92k Lotus Owners Can Now Swap Their Gauges to This All-Digital One
Lotus owners who want to enter the digital age can with company’s new ‘plug-and-play’ Digital Instrument Pack.
The digital dashboard features integrated GPS technology and lap performance indicators allowing track day racers to measure, display, and record data to perfect their racing lines and lap times.
Designed for Lotus Elise and V6 Exige models built from 2008 onwards, the system’s software comes pre-loaded with details of 4,127 race tracks and automatically recognizes when drivers are near a circuit. Drivers can download the start/finish line co-ordinates so they can calculate lap times, then analyze their performance in real time on the digital display or later by downloading data to a laptop.
A unique Lotus-branded start-up screen further enhances the experience, and users can also customize the display of the high-contrast six-inch TFT screen to suit their needs. The system even features a camera input, allowing drivers add a portable action camera to capture the action.
Replacing the original factory-fitted instrumentation, it’s available in international markets where the Elise and Exige are sold (that includes the Philippines). In its home market of the UK, the digital instrumentation costs £1,470 or about P 91,500.
