Lotus has announced a new faster limited edition version of their Lotus 3-Eleven, the new car will be made in just 311 units worldwide and deliveries will start from March 2016.
The new Lotus 3-Eleven comes with a top speed of 180 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of just 2.9 seconds.
The aggressive stance and dramatically sculpted body in lightweight carbon composite, standard on both Road and Race versions, perfectly balances the competition focus of a track car with the surface refinement of a road-going supercar. In keeping with performance orientated design, an optional Carbon Tonneau Cover is available for both Road and Race versions. In either left or right hand drive configurations, removable aerodynamic cover efficiently smoothes the airflow over the cockpit and turns the car into a competition inspired single seater.
As expected for such a focussed and extreme a sports car, the Lotus 3-Eleven delivers high levels of aerodynamic downforce from the sculptured bodywork, rear wing, front splitter and flat floor and rear splitter. At 150 mph (240 km/h) the Road version produces 150 kg of downforce; the Race version with its twin front canards mounted on both sides and its adjustable rear wing produces 215 kg.
Prices for the new Lotus 311 Road will start at £82,500 and the track focused Lotus 3-Eleven Race will start at £116,500
