385 horses of the V6 engine of 3.5-liter Toyota.

The british firm returns to surprise us with a new evolution, even more radical, of the family Ellise/Requires. The new Lotus Requires Sport 380 is converted to in the more radical alternative in the range, with a weight still more reduced and more power, which makes the Demands more powerful and fastest to date. A genuine toy designed to track, although this version is-enrolled and not only intended to circuit.

engineers from Hethel have managed to extract other 49 kilos of small Demands, achieving a curb weight of only 1.076 pounds in front of the 1,125 of the Required Sport 350, what has been achieved thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber, as well as in various elements of the body, in addition to employing new elements, a new li-ion battery, much lighter.

The new name is due to the new amount of power, since the brand has managed to squeeze an additional 30 horsepower from the V6 supercharged 3.5-liter source Toyota, so that now the output is 385 HP (380 hp) and 420 Nm of maximum torque.

carbon Fiber everywhere.

This allows the new Required Sport 380 is able to achieve the 100 km/h from standstill in just 3.7 seconds, both with the option of automatic transmission as a manual. Its maximum speed is 286 km/h, although with a ratio weight/power output of 342 horsepower per ton, it is all a matagigantes.

The exterior has been updated, with a new aerodynamic package, very similar to that used already in the Required Sport 350, which has been studied in the wind tunnel and is capable of generating up to 140 kilos of downforce. The new elements have been manufactured in carbon fiber, like the new wings or baffles.
