A close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox with a Torsen-type limited slip differential, featuring a performance clutch assembly and oil cooler, come as standard on the road version. The Race model has a 6-speed sequential transmission with a semi-dry sump, oil cooler, limited slip differential and paddle shift.
The Lotus 3-Eleven features lightweight body panels, using new resin infusion composite technology. Two front splitter configurations are available, depending on whether the vehicle is configured for road or race use, and the front arches are wide enough to cover the car’s wide track and the new 225/40 ZR18 tires.
The Lotus 3-Eleven goes on sales in April 2016. Production is going to be limited to, wait for it, 311 models. There’s no truth to the rumor you can buy it through 7-Eleven.
