Lotus CEO Jean-Marc Gales has revealed some new details about their 2-Eleven successor which will be called the 3-Eleven.

In an interview with Auto Motor und Sport, Gales said the 3-Eleven will be based on the Exige and feature a stiffer chassis as well as a target weight of 890 kg (1962 lbs).

The executive went on to say the car will have a V6 engine that produces approximately 420 PS (308 kW).  This will enable the model to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in approximately 7:09 and have a top speed of 285-290 km/h (177-180 mph).

The 3-Eleven will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show and production will be limited to 311 units.  Interestingly, it appears the car will also be road-legal.
