Lotus cars are known for being light and for their incredible handling. The most extreme Lotus so far is the 3-Eleven. And Lotus has just released more pictures and prices of the new model, able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 s in its Race version. And beyond 160 km/h in 6 s. The top speed is 290 km/h. In the more civil Road version, it still performs pretty well, with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 s and a top speed of 280 km/h. It is capable to handle 1.5 G of lateral acceleration!
