The new entry-level model features a high-revving 141kW naturally aspirated engine as used in the Elise R, this is compared to the 185kW supercharged unit currently used in the 2-Eleven.
Tipping the scales at just 720kg, it can still hit 100km/h in just 4.3 seconds from a standing start, and reach a top speed of 225km/h.
The range of options are aimed at getting the 2-Eleven around the track faster on a budget. These include two different limited slip differentials, an FIA approved 70L bag fuel tank and a removable competition steering wheel.
A carbon fiber tonneau cover, four piston front brakes and ‘Aero’ or ‘Sport’ accessories packs are also available.
The Aero pack consists of an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing and a lengthened composite front splitter while the Sport pack includes Ohlins two-way adjustable dampers.
The current Lotus 2-Eleven demands a price tag upward of AUD$81,800 in the UK which translates to $122,500 on Australian soil. The entry-level model will arrive in Europe starting from AUD$57,200 however this figure excludes taxes.
