Lotus will bid farewell to the 3-Eleven line, but not before putting its biggest engine into its lightest model for a final edition. Dubbed the 3-Eleven 430, the open cockpit roadster will do 0-60 in just 3.1 seconds with a max speed of 180 mph thanks to the 3.5-liter supercharged V6 capable of 430 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque sitting under the hood.

Eleven pounds lighter than the previous model, weighing in at 2,028 pounds to be exact, the car still offers everything you’d expect in a weekend track toy. Technical parts include a Torsen limited-slip differential, Öhlins adjustable dampers, Eibach adjustable anti-roll bars, six-mode traction control, four-piston AP Racing calipers in the front and rear and Michelin Cup 2 tires on both the 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels. All of that will cost you as the vehicle, which is limited to 20 production models, will retail for £102,000 GBP, about $143,000 USD.
