The trademark Lotus principle centered around the essence of lightweight is indelibly proven in the Elise Cup 250 – a blindingly quick Cup version of the famous Elise that weighs in at a scant 931kg, which propelled the fastest ever road-going Lotus Elise to a breezy 3.9 seconds 0-60 mph.

As for the 3-Eleven the potent purpose built track tool is specced out to such devastating effect combining feathery lightweight of a mere 890 kg with brute force horsepower of some 460 hp from its 3.5 liter supercharged V6 in race trim. A mind-blowing 2.9 seconds was all it took for the 3-Eleven to reach 100 km/h from a standstill.
