The Nurburgring is the most infamous and challenging course in the world, and Lotus brought its hardcore 3-Eleven to the track for a punishing two-week German vacation.
The super lightweight, open air 3-Eleven is in its testing stages, and what better place to do it than the Nurburgring? This is the car’s first public outing since its debut, and in its two-week testing and development period, it racked up more than 1,243 miles.
The 3-Eleven is powered by a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 with 450 hp, and when you consider that its dry weight is under 1,984 pounds, you can just imagine how quick this little car can be. Lotus claims a zero to 60 mph time of less than three seconds and its unofficial Nurburgring lap time stands at an incredibly fast 7 minutes, 6 seconds.
In the video, the Lotus development team says the car blew past any targets they set for it before testing.
Watch the Lotus 3-Eleven in action below. It will give you chills:
