Lotus has released a new video that shows their 3-Eleven tackling the Nürburgring.

Lotus didn't release the car's time has but previously asserted the model has "achieved one of the fastest ever lap times around the Nürburgring for any class of car."  Of course, that's slightly dubious as Lotus' claimed lap time of 7 minutes and 06 seconds never actually happened as the it's really just a combination of the "quickest sector times achieved during the fastest two laps on the 'Sport Auto' magazine lap configuration."

As a refresher, the 3-Eleven features a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 450 bhp (336 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.  It enables the lightweight racing variant to accelerate 0-60 mph in less than three seconds before hitting a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).
