Cool Car Spotting

Today I stumbled across a car for sale that I have never seen before, this is a rare occurrence for me.  This, obviously rare, Lotus is called a 340R. I have seen 2-Eleven cars,  Lotus 7 cars, and a bunch of cup race cars by Lotus but this 340R is a first for me.

Today I stumbled across a car for sale that I have never seen before, this is a rare occurrence for me.  This, obviously rare, Lotus is called a 340R. I have seen 2-Eleven cars,  Lotus 7 cars, and a bunch of cup race cars by Lotus but this 340R is a first for me.

It shows to crank out 190hp with a weight of 1450 lbs with a 0-62 time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 130mph. Like all Lotus cars this thing is a track king! Only 340 total examples were built and everyone was sold before they were ever manufactured, which explains the fact that I’ve never seen one. This car uses a totally custom built body shell with no roof or doors to add unneeded weight, every car came with a silver and black color scheme.  

Needless to say I love Lotus cars and this one is right up there with the coolest cars around.
