The Lotus 311 - 3 Eleven

Posted by & filed under Autos.

How do you make a Lotus Exige S even faster?

Step 1: make it roofless (and of course get rid of those silly things called “doors”)

Step 2: Upgrade the engine setup to put out 450 horsepower and 332 lb/ft of torque

Now you’re all set.

 

The new Lotus 3-Eleven has the ability to go 180 miles per hour and get to 62 in less than 3 seconds. Imagine that, a Lotus, neck and neck with a Nissan GT-R in a straight line.

Check out the specs here:

  • 450 horsepower and 332 lb ft from the supercharged 3.5 V6
  • Below 2000 pounds (in race trim)
  • 4-piston AP brakes and Michelin Pilot Super Sport (road)/Cup 2 (race) tires
  • Up to 473 pounds of downforce (in race trim)
  • Starts at $128,998 (road) and $151,049 (race) without VAT

 

The unveiling took place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed:
