The new 3-Eleven 430 is Lotus’ quickest street legal car yet

The new 3-Eleven 430 is Lotus’ quickest street legal car yet

Lotus claims that the new 3-Eleven 430  is the fastest Lotus road car to lap the challenging Hethel circuit, 0.8 seconds quicker than the second place Exige Cup 430, and two seconds quicker than the previous 3-Eleven, delivering a benchmark time of 1 minute 24 seconds. Upgraded and specifically re-optimised for the 3-Eleven, the supercharged and charge-cooled 3.5-litre V6 engine produces 430bhp and 440Nm, propelling the 3-Eleven 430 from 0-100 kmph in an astonishing 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 290 km/h.

Remaining true to the company’s ethics, it employs a lightweight carbon-composite body and a bespoke extruded and bonded aluminium chassis. Sculpted part-exposed carbon side panels and striking carbon interior panels all contribute to the exceptional light weight. 

The car set new standards for speed and agility at any price. 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 car lap record. The 3-Eleven will be the last of its kind with production limited to just 20 cars worldwide.
