The Lotus Europa is considered by many Lotus enthusiasts as the ultimate expression of Colin Chapman's design philosophy as applied to a road car. The S2 cars featured a punchy 1.5L 4 cylinder engine engines which could motivate the sub 1,600 lb car briskly. The unique exterior design had a very low drag coffiecient of only 0.29 while retaining a very comfortable passenger cabin. Like the Elan before it and the Esprit after it, the Europa utilized the classic steel backbone chassis which provided a very stiff foundation from which the suspension wizards at Hethel extracted phenominal handling from the car.

This recently restored example was taken down to the chassis and rebuilt. No detail was overlooked. The car was originally red but has a Blue and White vinyl wrap from 3M application currently. It can be left this way as a driver or resprayed to complete the restoration to show quality
