Design: radical designed for performance character

The aggressive appearance of the Lotus 3-Eleven leaves no doubt about his intentions. The body thrilled with perfect balance between the technical efficiency of a racing car and the surface finish of a road-going supercar. The makers stayed on a minimal cross-sectional area, which reduces the air resistance to a minimum and at the same time ensures optimum cooling. The aerodynamic downforce of the race version is at 240 km / h even impressive 215 kilograms.

As a further development of the design of the Lotus predecessor, features the new front of the 3-Eleven over long openings to adequately cool the drive and transmission. Depending on whether it concerns the road- or Race version, two front splitter versions are available. The wheel arches are wide enough for both the wide race tires as well as for road tires. Deep indentations on the side ensure a clean finish of the wheel arches.

The rollbar of Lotus 3-Eleven, which has neither windscreen nor doors, completely encloses the rear cage brace, ensures optimal contact pressure and constitutes an essential factor for the registration of the car in accordance with international safety standards in motorsport.

The rear emphasizes the aggressive stance of the Lotus 3-Eleven with various spoilers that can be selected, depending on whether the car is designed for road or race. The new rear diffuser and underbody, the Lotus developed for minimal air resistance adds an exhaust system that has been specially designed to minimize the exhaust gas backpressure and maximize engine performance.
