The 3-Eleven is available in two configurations; a road legal version and a race version. The car has a mid-mounted engine configuration and comes with a 3.5 L Toyota 2GR-FE V6 engine coupled with an Edelbrock Roots-type supercharger. The engine is similar to the one found in the Lotus Evora, but with variable power outputs, producing 410 bhp at 7,000 rpm and 302 lb/ft at 3,000 rpm of torque in the road version, and with engineering changes and software revisions to produce 460 bhp at 7,000 rpm and 387 lb/ft at 3,500 rpm in the race version.
Both versions of the car have different transmissions; a 6-speed manual transmission is available for the road version and a paddle operated 6-speed sequential manual transmission is available for the race version. Acceleration times also vary with the road version having a 0–62 mph acceleration time of 3.3 seconds and the race version having the same acceleration time of 2.9 seconds which is achieved due to a reduction in dry weight by 77 lb. Both versions have a top speed of 180 mph.
