Lotus Drops Two New Videos of the 3-Eleven on the Nurburgring

Watch the 3-Eleven scream past a group of Porsches on the ‘Ring

For the unfamiliar, here’s a look at what makes the 3-Eleven special. Weighing in at just 1,962 pounds in race spec and 2,039 pounds in street trim, the 3.5-liter supercharged V-6 engine sends a maximum of 460 hp to the rear wheels (410 in street spec) through either a six-speed manual or sequential transmission. This means a 0-60 mph time at just under three seconds and a top speed north of 170 mph. To show off these impressive performance credentials, Lotus just released two new videos of the 3-Eleven running wild on the Nurburgring.

In the videos, Lotus hotshoe Marc Basseng attacks the ‘Ring with ferocity, ripping past an entire fleet of Porsches in the process. This isn’t a really a surprise, however, given the featherweight construction high power output. According to Lotus, the 3-Eleven’s aero package produces 330 pounds of downforce in street trim and 474 pounds in race spec, giving the 3-Eleven a slippery profile to match the tremendous speed.

Take a look at the Lotus 3-Eleven on the Nurburgring in the video above and below.
