Lotus Digital Instrument Pack Plugs Right in for Track Days
Imagine a device that helped you track your data and performance on track that you could easily plug into your Lotus? Well, imagine no more – it exists.
This Digital Instrument Pack is made just for Lotus owners looking for an accurate way to record metrics on the track. It knows over 4,000 race tracks around the world and has in-built GPS to find out which one you’re at. You can even plug in your action camera to get even more out of each lap.
Here’s the press release with more.
Lotus has launched an all-new ‘plug and play’ Digital Instrument Pack that’s pre-loaded with details of more than 4,000 race tracks from across the world.
The perfect illustration of how Lotus is always ‘For The Drivers’, the digital dashboard features integrated GPS technology and lap performance indicators, allowing track day fans 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 recognises when drivers are near a circuit. Drivers can download the start/finish line co-ordinates so they can calculate lap times, then analyse 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 customise 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 from each exhilarating lap.
The Digital Instrument Pack has been carefully designed to fit seamlessly into the Elise or Exige dashboard, replacing the original factory-fit instrumentation. It is available in international markets where the two cars are sold. At UK Lotus retailers it is priced £1,470 including VAT and a fitting service is available at an extra cost. When fitted by a Lotus retailer the pack is covered by a two-year warranty. Prices in other markets will vary.
Lotus owners can now also take advantage of a number of other aftersales packages, including fixed price scheduled servicing and on brakes and clutches. All parts purchased and fitted by an authorised Lotus retailer are now covered by a 24-month / unlimited mileage parts warranty.
