New 2-Eleven track special takes the lightweight Lotus concept to lofty new levels
28 Apr 2008
ALL Lotus cars are quick, light, handle very well and are not all that practical. The 2-Eleven is an extreme example of Lotus values, sort of like a sociopathic version of the Elise. It doesn’t have a roof, it has no creature comforts whatsoever, is incredibly loud and can’t even be registered in Australia. The price of $127,500 sounds very steep given you can’t even drive it on the road, but the 2-Eleven can blitz some of the most expensive exotic supercars in the world on the racetrack. With a 1.8-litre supercharged engine belting out 188kg and a kerb weight of just 745kg, the 2-Eleven has a power to weight ratio that would rival Formula One cars of the 1960s.
