Goodwood Festival of Speed has become a platform for the premiere of a brand new and extremely amusing “Lotus” – a 3-Eleven, which has become the fastest and most expensive model of the British brand. Freaky bow, just two modifications, and a 3.5-liter V6.
Yes, this thing has been prepared in both civil and in track versions. Both are built on an aluminum monocoque and the use of composite materials (“Lotus” talk about some completely new mix, which is lighter than fiberglass 40%) for the body and weigh approximately 900 kg. A toyota six, borrowed from Evora 400 presses more than 450 power and 450 Nm of torque (at 3500 rev / min). All of this was digested with 6-speed manual and a Torsen limited-slip differential in a road version, and sequential gearbox – in the case of combat.
By the way, last bullet to the first hundred within 3 seconds, gaining as much as 290 km / h. Time to stop the four-help mechanisms Brembo. Lotus will release only 311 copies of novelties (and it is not clear, each version or in general). And each, so to speak, costing a lot of money – for the civil version will have to pay a minimum of € 115 000 and will fly combat trick already in € 160,000 with little. So that hoard, and hurry!
