Profile

Superb handling is what the 340R is all about. Forget what you've heard about the Elise and Exige, the 340R really does corner like its on rails.

With 190bhp to move only 658kg, this Lotus is just about unbeatable on the track. But itís off the track that it comes a bit unstuck. A rock hard ride, reliability problems and no roof (!) make it frankly impractical as a genuine road car.
