top gear got the chance to drive the new 2-eleven here.
The video is kinda rubbish, but whats your opinion on the car itself

this car is the definition of Lotus, i know i work for them, but this car has really got us excited at work, if you take the time to look at the small styling cues and aerodynamics the car is a piece of art, its beautifully designed and made, although on the outset from a distance i'm willing to agree it looks a bit odd i think. And with launch control and an insane power-to-weight ratio, its enough to get anyone excited :D I can't wait for our first car to be delivered this year... I hear the open road calling my name!!
oh and you dont need the crash helmet to drive the car either... which it has in that video...

darn, hate the music, ruins the whole video because i cant hear how it sounds...ugh...but okay, that isnt quite on road, but it drives very nicely on the track, but well, i would love to see how it looked outside...
and i think this should go in the Car Multimedia section though

you guys actually released estimmates of 0-100 to be around 9.1, the way this car is going thats miles of. Its like the biggest underclaim ever. Its got a better power to weight than a porsche GT3 RS, noble m15, corvtte z06, lambo murcielargo and a ferrari f430. yet the Z06 and M15 do 0-100 in under 8 secs, so this lotus with a better power to weight and launch control should be doing somthing like 0-100 in 7.5. Plus with whats considered the worlds best chasis this car will be insane.

I have always wondered about Top Gear website videos. All I see it a collection of stills and I never see the point.
As far as the car is concerned I am sure it is a good track day car. I am not sure whether it is designed for road use as well as track use. I cannot be too excited by a track day car because I don't really go to the track that often, and I would prefer more car for the road. I am sure it would be good fun on a nice afternoon but not to live with. However that is what Lotus are known for.

Isn't there oing to be two versions of this car, a road going one and a track one, I don't think the track one is road legal. It looks great, will probably sound great and will go like a bat out of hell. Looks the best in yellow and black aswell.

sort of, the road version just has things the track one dosen't, like indicators. The road legal one is only aviable in the UK, the difference between the road and track version is basically a weight difference of about 5kg. the weight coming from added parts to make it road legal, like proper head lights
