This Stock Lotus Just Beat The Porsche 918 Spyder's Lap Time

Lap Record

It also costs $650,000 less and has half the horsepower.

Lotus has broken into the hypercar segment and they did it by sticking to its traditional recipe of light small cars with excellent handling. The 3.5-liter V6 in the Lotus 3-Eleven makes 450 horsepower, which was apparently enough to upset the Porsche 918 Spyder’s time of 1:06.3 seconds at the Hockenheim race track in Germany. The 3-Eleven did it in a tenth of a second less, which isn’t much. This comes after Lotus driver Marc Basseng predicted that the 3-Eleven would beat a 918 around the Nurburgring.
