Lotus revealed the new 2015 3-Eleven at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England on Friday.

Kicking out 450 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, this supercar accelerates 0-60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds. Lotus will be making a race and street model for purchase. The Race 3-Eleven, sporting an aerodynamic kit, tops out at 174 mph, while the Road model can reach 180 mph, according to Auto Week. A supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine and a light and sharp body design round out Lotus' fastest and most expensive car date.

"We always say that to make a sports car better, you make it faster and lighter. The new Lotus 3-Eleven carries that philosophy to a new level and is perfectly in keeping with our brand values," said Jean-Marc Gales, chief executive officer for Group Lotus.

Only 311 units of the Lotus 3-Eleven will be produced, beginning in February 2016 with deliveries in April, Gizmag reports. Lotus has not announced if the new model will be sold in the U.S., which explains why it has only released European pricing. The Race model tag is £115,200, equivalent to $128,660 in America, while the Road edition is £82,000, totaling $91,580 in the States, according to Digital Trends.
