Lotus Unveils New 3-Eleven 430: Lightweight, Street-Legal Track Monster
Lexus has debuted a new version of their most niche vehicle, the 3-Eleven. The 3-Eleven differs from the other vehicles the company offers by being even more extreme than the already extreme Lotus line-up.
Debuting in 2015, the 3-Eleven is a lightweight, extremely rigid, roof-less design that is supposed to provide the ‘purest and most direct’ driving experience. In 430 form, the 3-Eleven features a supercharged 3.5L V6 making 430hp, feeding power to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. This combination is good for a 0-60sec time of 3.2secs.
To control this power, Lotus has installed a 6-position traction control, which allows a range of slip from ‘off’–or 100% slip–to between 1% and 12% of slip.
The 3-Eleven 430 is available now as part of a limited-to-20 production run, with a starting price of £102,000.
