What's all this about?

The Lotus 3-Eleven, Hethel's fastest and most powerful production car to date, has successfully completed two weeks of testing at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

OK, what was Lotus doing there?

It was working on the car's aerodynamics, engine calibration, chassis tuning and suspension geometry.

Fantastic. Can you tell me anything more about it?

Not really, although we can provide you with a video of the super-focused 3-Eleven in action in Germany, if you'd like?

I'd like that a lot.

Then have a peek at it right here.

Thanks very much. Can you just remind me of prices?

The Road version of the 3-Eleven starts at £82,000 and the Race £96,000, although that latter figure excludes VAT; it'll be more like £115,200 with it included. Production begins in early 2016.
