Lotus 340R Speedster (2000-2000)
Lotus 340R is a subcompact speedster in production in 2000. It was powered by a Rover-sourced naturally-aspirated inline-4 engine that displaced 1.8 liters paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. Essentially, it was a limited-production version based on the Lotus Elise.
Exceptionally light, the 340R does away with the roof and adds more racing-focused suspensions. It offers improved handling and a more unique open-top driving experience at the expense of some practicality.
