The Lotus 340R was a limited edition sports car maunufactured by Lotus Cars in 2000 at their Hethel factory.

OverviewEdit

The 340R is special edition of the Lotus Elise. Just 340 models were built, and all were sold before they were manufactured. It uses a custom built bodyshell with no roof and no doors. All 340 cars came with a silver and black colour scheme. Special 'A038R' tyres where developed for the 340R in collaboration with Yokohama.

While road-legal in the UK, most of the surviving 340 cars are used for racing, track use, or demonstrations.

EngineEdit

The engine is tweaked version of the Rover K-Series engine used in the regular Elise which produces 178 bhp (131 kW) as standard, or 192 bhp (142 kW) with optional Lotus accessories. It is the same engine as is used in the hard-top Lotus Exige but weighs less. It goes from 0 - 60 mph (0 - 100 km/h) in just 4.3 sec. with 178bhp.
