Lotus is currently developing a brand new 2-Eleven called the 3-Eleven, and if it's going to be faster than its predecessor, we're in for a good one.
What was the stock horsepower? 160 to the wheels. Now? 680 from the same 1.8 liter four banger. The world's fastest Lotus is here, except that it's not really a Lotus anymore.
Remember 'the world's fastest Lotus'? The one that won the Speedhunters Street Car of the Year Award in 2012 and then crashed into a concrete wall thanks to a careless Porsche driver? Well, it's back. With no roof and 680 hp at the wheels.
The Lotus 2-Eleven's a serious hot-lapping toy designed to tackle places like the Nürburgring, but If you find yourself in a 2-Eleven on the 'Ring try to remember it's not magic, just good engineering, so you don't do this.
There are lunatic experimental builds and then there's this — a chopped-up, caged, Lotus Elise Superlight that's more race car than road car. But hey, it's got plates, and they're appropriate because you can't pronounce "XPRMTL" without saying "mental."
