Lotus has unveiled its new 2-Eleven GT4 Supersport race car, which Lotus calls the "pinnacle" of the 2-Eleven series. Unlike other 2-Eleven variants that are built for the track and the road, the GT4 Supersport race car was built only for track use only to compete in the European SRO GT4 Supersports category.
Performance is pushed to the extreme with a dramatic composite body, an advanced aerodynamic package, a full rollcage, increase power and a sequential gearbox. The 2-Eleven double wishbone suspension has been upgraded with stiffer race springs and dampers. Semi-slick AO48 Yokohama's come as standard.
Power comes from the standard supercharged 255-hp supercharged engine but Lotus Sport has increased output to a total of 270-hp with a maximum torque of 182 lb-ft. The engine is mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox with a mounted push/pull lever and gear selector display. The 2-Eleven GT4 Supersport also features a sports tuned ABS, variable traction control and launch control systems.
Lotus Sport will only make 10 units of the 2-Eleven GT4 Supersport race car with prices starting at £78,255 ($117,314 USD). Deliveries will begin in March for the 2009 racing season.
