Lotus Spirit

Designed as an uncompromised manifestation of the Lotus spirit, the Lotus 3-Eleven is focused on providing an undiluted driving experience, and underlines the company’s ability to deliver legendary handling and blistering speed.

Weight

Working on the concept of less is more, and keeping close to Lotus’ track roots, this dramatic vehicle features an all-new lightweight body, with an open cockpit design and a revised supercharged V6 engine developing 460 hp in the race version.

Road and Track versions

Two variations of the Lotus 3-Eleven are available: Road and Race; both delivering an impressive combination of high performance, agility and precision. Based on the Road version, the Race includes among other things a more aggressive aero kit, a sequential gearbox and an FIA approved driver’s seat with a six-point harness.

Performance

With a dry weight of only 890 kg (Race version), the 3-Eleven offers an enviable power to weight ratio, in excess of 500 hp per tonne, and is capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds (Race version) before reaching a maximum speed of 174 mph (280 km/h) for the Race version and 180 mph (290 km/h) for the Road version.
