Lotus' 3-Eleven 430 is officially its nippiest road-legal sports vehicle

Lotus 3 Eleven 430

Elsewhere, it is business as usual for a Lotus vehicle. Power and torque have both been upgraded more substantially by 20bhp and 23lb ft, respectively, giving a total output of 424bhp and 325lb ft. Kitted with a (surprise!) 430hp supercharged V6 engine, it'll do 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds, with top speed clocked at 180mph. From remarkable sector times on the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit during its development, the original Lotus 3-Eleven went on to lap the Hockenheimring short circuit in an incredible 1 minute 6.2 seconds setting a production auto lap record. Lotus is particularly proud of the exposed carbon fiber side panels.

Tipping the scales at 920 kilograms (2,028 pounds), the 3-Eleven 430 prides itself on a power-to-weight ratio of 467 horsepower per tonne.

Drive goes to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, a single-mass low inertia fly wheel and a Torsen-type limited slip differential.

Braking is courtesy of AP Racing four-piston callipers front and rear and new, two-piece J-Hook brake discs (332 mm front and rear) which provide improved bite and debris clearance and reduce distortion and vibration, Lotus says.

"When we first unveiled the Lotus 3-Eleven it heralded a new generation of truly focused, world-class sports cars", said Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus CEO.

Yup, it seems that while Lotus waits for new parent company Geely to inject some much-needed cash and create a product plan that doesn't involve sweating old assets to within a degree of their limited edition life, the Norfolk-based firm is left to sweat old assets to within a degree of their limited edition life.
