Lotus has launched a new £27,995 base edition of its 2-Eleven track car, with a 187bhp, naturally aspirated version of the 1.8-litre Toyota VVT-i engine in place of the Launch Edition’s 252bhp supercharged unit. It’s still fast, though: the claimed 0-60mph time is 4.3sec, rather than 3.8.Production of the Launch Edition was going to be limited to between 80 and 100 units, but Lotus has already taken more than 160 2-Eleven orders - so far all for the £39,995 Launch Edition. However, existing customers will be able to change their orders for the 190bhp car, or for alternative specifications, if production hasn’t started. Options on the base car, which the higher-spec Launch Edition all came with, include forged alloy wheels, four-pot brakes, an aero-kit – and the supercharger, which Lotus engineering boss Nick Adams thinks the vast majority of 2-Elevens will be ordered with.Option prices include £3495 for the SVA pack, which makes the 2-Eleven road legal, £4495 for the Supercharger pack, £3495 for a Sport pack (forged alloys, traction and launch control, adjustable dampers), and an Aero pack at £1495. Stand-alone options include a limited slip differential at £1695, four-piston brakes at £1495, the half-tonneau at £1250, Launch Edition graphics at £2495 and a removable steering wheel at £395.
